NEW YORK — U2 says it will hit the stage in Vancouver next May to open a 19-city tour that skips Las Vegas (our words, not theirs).
Promoter Live Nation announced the rock band’s “iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE” tour on Wednesday, and tickets go on sale on Monday. The tour swings through North America next summer before heading to Europe in September 2015.
U2 is obviously hoping for a complete recovery by lead singer Bono, who was hurt in a bicycle accident in New York City last month. During a surprise gig in New York’s Times Square this week, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin filled in for the vocalist.
