U2 will follow up their recently announced summer tour of North America with a fall arena tour of Europe. The new dates will keep the 22-time Grammy winners on the road through late October in support of their chart-topping studio album Songs of Experience, which dropped Dec. 1 via Interscope.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers dropped the big news on Jan. 16 via an official video announcement posted at their official U2 website. The “With or Without You” hitmakers will perform over a dozen shows across Europe and the U.K. with more dates to be announced, including “special shows” in the band's home stomping grounds of Dublin and in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The overseas arena trek will launch on Aug. 31 in Berlin at Mercedes-Benz Arena. The legendary Irish rockers will hit multiple big cities, including a pair of two-night stands Sept. 8 – Sept. 9 in Paris at AccorHotels Arena, as well as Oct. 11 – Oct. 12 in Milan at Mediolanum Forum, before wrapping up Oct. 23 in London at The O2.
