U2 have confirmed some European tour dates and thankfully, Dublin and Belfast are on the list.
Live Nation and MCD have confirmed dates for the European leg of U2’s eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour on Tuesday morning.
It will kick off in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on May 2 at the BOK Centre.
They will also play: Cologne, Paris, Madrid, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Milan, Manchester and London.
But, most importantly, special home shows are in the pipeline for Dublin and Belfast and although details and dates haven’t been finalised, you know it’s going to be epic.
Could it be a few nights at the 3Arena or will it be one stormer of a gig in Croke Park?
