(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — International rock super-act U2 have rescheduled the final ten shows on their Vertigo tour for November, frontman Bono told an Australia television channel. An official announcement is expected this week.
The shows were cancelled last week due to an undisclosed family illness.
“There was a lot of distress and angst and (the) good news is…I can announce tonight we are coming back, looks like November and that’s a great relief for me,” He told the interview on the show Enough Rope. “I didn’t want to leave Australia without having that hammered down.”
The affected dates were set for March 17-18 at Auckland’s Ericcson Stadium, March 21 at Brisbane’s Queensland Sports & Athletics Centre, March 24-25 at Melbourne’s Telstra Dome, March 28 at Adelaide’s AAMI Stadium, March 31 and April 1 at Sydney’s Telstra Stadium, April 4 at Yokohama’s Nissan Stadium, and April 8 at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium.
According to Billboard, Michael Coppel, the promoter for the Australia and New Zealand shows, had successfully urged three leading airlines — Air New Zealand, Qantas and Virgin Blue — to offer passengers holding tickets for travel to a U2 show a reprieve from cancellation and change fees. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
