The band are heading out on the road again, playing indoor arenas for the first time in a decade.
The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour will see U2 play 19 cities worldwide next year, with pairs of shows in each city.
“We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two,” said Bono, “and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More to be revealed!”
Tickets for all shows go on general sale today - but presales to paid U2.com subscribers began on Thursday December 4th.
Songs Of Innocence, gifted by Apple to over half a billion iTunes Music Store customers, has now been streamed 81m times and downloaded by 30m fans.
'The anticipation for a U2 tour is always extraordinary, as it should be,' said Arthur Fogel, President, Global Touring and Chairman, Global Music. 'Following the record-setting 360° Tour I'm amazed that they still want to be ground-breaking, this time on a more intimate scale.'
