U2 Tour 2015 Previewed on the Tonight Show

May 11, 2015 by Alyssa


U2 Tour

U2 is just days away from kicking off its 2015 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour in North America, with the first shows booked for Vancouver, May 14-15. Before the venture begins, though, the Irish rock outfit flew to New York to hype the upcoming trek--and preview the live experience for fans--on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

In the episode that aired on May 8, bassist Adam Clayton confirmed there are two concept albums attached to the upcoming U2 tour. (2014’s “Songs of Innocence” is the first of the two.) While the “experience” album is still in the works, the tour’s stage design will incorporate both concepts, and, like the band’s previous tour, the stage will give fans a 360-degree view of the performance. U2 also gave some details on the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour’s custom sound system, which according to The Edge should give fans in all areas of the arena the same high-quality sonic experience.

Check out a preview of the tour below:

 

Beyond giving technical details about the U2 tour, the band also performed a handful of songs live on “The Tonight Show” last week, including the concert staple “Beautiful Day.” They also performed the new track “Song for Someone” in front of the studio audience, and you can see in the video below that Bono and Co. still sound rock solid live.

 

The 2015 U2 tour will feature a minimum of 36 dates across the U.S. and Canada, with at least two shows booked in every city on the schedule. The North American dates will stretch out over nearly three months before the tour wraps with eight shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

The May 8 “Tonight Show” episode also featured some quirky non-tour related segments, including one poking fun at Bono’s bike accident last fall. Another showed U2 surprising commuters in a New York subway station as they busked in disguise.
