MUMBAI (CelebrityAccess) – U2 has announced that they will perform their first-ever concert in Mumbai, India later this year before closing out the band’s The Joshua Tree tour.
Scheduled to take place December 15 at DY Patil Stadium, the newly added date will cap off the band’s Asia-Pacific leg of the tour, which kicks off on November 8 in Auckland, New Zealand, and will make stops in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, then Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul and Manila, before concluding in Mumbai.
The tour is a continuation of the band’s 2017 world tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of its seminal 1987 album The Joshua Tree. The 2017 concerts played to 2.7 million fans across 51 shows in North America, Europe and Latin America.
“We’re much looking forward to bringing a dash of Dublin to Mumbai, India – a country famous for its rich culture of art, music, movies, theater, literature, food and so much more,” U2 bass player Adam Clayton said. “There is a lot of excitement in the U2 camp.”
“We have been around the world with ‘The Joshua Tree,’ and we can’t think of a better place to celebrate the end of this tour,” The Edge added. “Mumbai, India, we’re coming for you – I hope you’re ready.”
The Mumbai concert is produced by Live Nation Global Touring and is being brought to India by BookMyShow. Tickets go on sale September 24, with prices ranging from INR 3,000 ($42) to INR 14,000 ($196).
