U2 Extends US Tour Schedule

By on October 26, 2010 in

Longtime rock band U2 is set to perform additional concert dates in their rescheduled 2011 North American tour. They currently have 22 shows planned from May 14h to July 26th. The New Meadowlands Stadium will welcome them in on July 20th before they make their way to the TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on the 23rd. The last scheduled performance to date will take place in Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field on July 26th. Other cities to play host to U2 include Denver, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Oakland, Philadelphia, Chicago and Nashville.

The previously arranged 2010 U2 tour was postponed following a serious injury to lead singer Bono’s back. They are now recording with hopes to release their 12th studio album in the near future. “At the moment it looks like we will put out the album next because it’s just happening so easily,” explained Bono in a recent interview. “When you enter the studio with the roar of the crowd in your ears, you know what works. If you take musicians away from the stage too much, they become quite abstract in their heads…You listen to the Sex Pistols or Nirvana or the first MGMT album and you don’t scratch your chin. You say, ‘Wow, that’s extraordinary’.” Check back for more tour and album updates.
