U2 is scaling down – sort of.
After a decade of tours in stadiums, the band is returning to arenas for its “Innocence and Experience” tour, set to start in Vancouver in May and wrapping at Madison Square Garden in July.
Promoting its recent “Songs of Innocence” album, the band is currently set to play The Garden on July 18, 19, 22 and 23, with tickets going on sale to the public on Dec. 8 through Ticketmaster.
“We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience,” Bono said in a statement. “More to be revealed!”
Arthur Fogel, Live Nation’s chairman and president of global touring, said in a statement that anticipation for the tour is running high. “Following the record-setting 360 Tour, I’m amazed that they still want to be groundbreaking, this time on a more intimate scale,” Fogel said
