“U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85 percent of the tickets priced at less than $95.00, general admission floor tickets priced at $55.00 and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at the $30.00 price range, we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view” says U2’s manager Paul McGuinness.

In keeping with their long-standing tradition, U2 will welcome a number of different support acts to the tour, including: Snow Patrol, Music, Glasvegas, Elbow, Kaiser Chiefs and Black Eyed Peas. IN TAMPA THE SPECIAL GUEST WILL BE MUSE
