U2 Tour 2015 to Launch in North America in May
On Dec. 3, U2 announced its schedule of 2015 tour dates in support of its latest album, “Songs of Innocence.” The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour is scheduled to stop in just 19 international cities next year, including nine North American markets. Find U2 tickets in the Vivid Seats marketplace for dates scheduled throughout the venture. The tour’s first leg will kick off at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena from May 14-15 and each city the band visits will host the Bono-fronted group for at least two nights. The venture will ultimately wrap up in the summer with four shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden (July 18-19 and 22-23). Prior to, the U2 tour also will play four nights at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood, Calif. (May 26-27 and 30-31), in addition to making stops in cities like Phoenix (May 22-23), Chicago (June 24-25), and Boston (July 10-11), among others. Following the North American leg, the band will head overseas to Europe. It’s not yet clear if the group plans to add additional North American dates to the schedule.
The new U2 album was made available for free to iTunes customers on Sept. 9, and was then released in physical form on Sept. 30. The latest effort from the Dublin rock quartet also topped Rolling Stone’s list of the 50 best albums of 2014.
U2 Offers Up New Album "Songs of Innocence" for Free on iTunes
In one of the music industry’s better-kept secrets, news of the planned “surprise” appearance by U2 at Apple’s groundbreaking Sept. 9 event leaked just hours beforehand and even then, details were scant. As expected, Bono and Co. took the stage to perform following product presentations, and afterward, in an unexpected twist, announced that not only had the band finished its latest album, but that it would be available immediately for free in the iTunes store. The long-awaited release, titled “Songs of Innocence,” holds true U2’s goal of releasing its first new album in five years in 2014.
The unveiling came just over seven months following the release of what was then thought to be the lead single off U2’s new album. “Invisible” notably debuted during the Super Bowl and also was initially available for free download on iTunes, though ultimately was left off “Songs of Innocence,” a move that perhaps backs claims that U2 had decided to go back to the drawing board, which likely contributed to the later-than-expected album release. In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone, Bono said of the album: “We wanted to make a very personal album. Let’s try to figure out why we wanted to be in a band, the relationships around the band, our friendships, our lovers, our family.” While no U2 tour news was included during the event, it’s expected that the group will make a grand return to the road at some point in 2015.

A band every bit deserving of its legendary status and 2005 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, U2 has long been defined by its passion, a signature characteristic that has been evident in each release since the group's debut in 1980. The world has certainly taken note along the way, as virtually every U2 album has gone multi-Platinum in countries all across the globe, while critics and colleagues have shown similar appreciation for Bono and Co. From GRAMMYs to Billboard Music Awards, the list of accolades continues to grow each time new material is released, not to mention the numerous touring honors received for a band well-versed in the art of putting on an extraordinary live show.
