U2 360 Confirms 2010 North American Tour Dates

When it wraps up this week, the U2 360 Tour will have played to over 3 million fans in just 44 cities. With record shattering sales including the largest attendance at the Rose Bowl this evening as well as setting the all time record at New York’s Giant Stadium where the audience surpassed that of the Pope – the largest rock and roll touring production ever has just confirmed the return to North America beginning June 6th at Anaheim’s Angel Stadium. The tour is once again produced by Live Nation Global Touring and sponsored by BlackBerry®.

Having performed in a limited number of North American cities in 2009, U2 360 is set to touch down in a new set of stadiums next summer including stops in Anaheim; Denver; Oakland; Seattle; Edmonton; East Lansing; Miami; Philadelphia and Montreal. Due to overwhelming demand, U2 360 will also return for one night only in Toronto and Chicago before finishing the North American leg in New York at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

With sell-outs already reported for the 2010 European tour including Denmark (2 shows sold out); Brussels (2 shows sold out); Helsinki (2 shows sold out) and Coimbra (2 shows sold out); and Paris where over 90,000 tickets were sold for a third show at that venue, U2 2010 will offer fans who missed out a new opportunity to experience the U2 stadium spectacle.

With a cylindrical video system of interlocking LED panels, and a steel structure rising 150 feet from the floor over a massive stage with rotating bridges, the band has truly created an intimate 360 experience for concert goers. In keeping with the concept that this tour is more about a unique staging configuration with excellent sight-lines, tickets for the U2 360 2010 tour will once again be scaled so that 85 percent of the tickets are priced at less than $95.00, general admission floor tickets at $55.00 and at least 10,000 tickets per venue priced at $30.00.

Tickets for the U2 360 Tour performances in Oakland, Edmonton, and Toronto will go on sale Monday November 2. Additional North American on sales will take place over the following few weeks in November. Full details of all dates and on-sale information as well as multiple imagery and video of the unique production and seating positions can be found at www.U2.com.

As always, subscribers to U2’s official website u2.com will have an opportunity to purchase tickets in advance of the public on sale date. Existing members who renew their memberships as well as new subscribers will be eligible to receive a Limited Edition U2 remix CD as well the chance to participate in the pre-sale for the 2010 shows.
