Story by Charles Ken

U2 have added new dates to their upcoming trek

U2’s tours pretty much always sell out, and the band’s upcoming “The Joshua Tree” 30th anniversary trek is no exception. The classic alternative band has already sold more than 1.1 million tickets, and that’s just 24 hours after they went on sale. Due to demand, Bono and the crew have extra tour stops in Los Angeles, Chicago and East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The new gigs will take place May 21 at L.A.’s Rose Bowl, June 4 at Chicago’s Soldier Field and June 29 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Tickets for the just-announced shows will go on sale to the general public on Monday (Jan. 23).

U2 will perform their classic “The Joshua Tree” album in its entirety on the upcoming tour. The run will set off May 12 in Vancouver, Canada. The 1987 is known as the album that made U2, well, U2.

The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons and OneRepublic will open for select dates of the upcoming North American tour. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will open in Europe.

In addition to the tour, U2 will headline Bonnaroo this summer. For information on U2’s upcoming tour dates, head to U2.com.
