U2 Announces 2015 Tour Plans

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Irish rockers U2 and Live Nation have announced the dates for the band's upcoming iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour.

Set to kick off in the Spring of 2015, the tour will play indoor arenas in the U.S., and will visit 19 cities worldwide during its first 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 in a press statement. “And have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience."

As well, the band says a special show is being planned for Dublin late next year to benefit the U2-initiated Music Generation project, though concrete details about the show have yet to be revealed.

The tour follows the recent release of U2’s thirteenth studio album Songs Of Innocence, which was injected into more than half a billion Apple customer's music libraries as a cross promotion with the electronics company as they announced the iPhone 6 in September. According to Live Nation, Songs of Innocence has been streamed 81 million times and has been downloaded by 30 million fans since its release.
