Wednesday, December 3, 2014 – For Immediate Release.  The dates for U2’s upcoming iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015 have been announced today by Live Nation. The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour which begins in 2015, will see U2 play indoor arenas for the first time in a decade, in 19 cities worldwide during it’s first year with pairs of shows in each city. Tickets for all shows will go on general sale on Monday 8th December.

To date, Songs of Innocence has been streamed 81m times and has been downloaded by 30m fans.
 
“We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two” said Bono, “and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More to be revealed!”
 
“The anticipation for a U2 tour is always extraordinary, as it should be,” said Arthur Fogel | President - Global Touring and Chairman - Global Music. “Following the record-setting 360° Tour I’m amazed that they still want to be ground-breaking, this time on a more intimate scale.”
