U2 will reportedly add a second Irish date to their Joshua Tree anniversary tour.
The band recently announced that they will be playing Croke Park on 22nd July 2017 as part of their highly anticipated tour that will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the album that catapulted them to stardom.
The show will include a performance of The Joshua Tree in its entirety, with support in Dublin from special guest Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – with Noel saying, “It will be both a pleasure and an honour to play my part in what still remains the greatest show on earth.”
Pre-sale tickets to the show predictably enough sold out on Wednesday morning and touts are already trying to sell tickets for incredulous prices.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Monday and based on Wednesday’s ticket frenzy, fans are understandably worried that they won’t be able to secure a ticket – but this should be less of a worry once the second date is announced!
According to a source, the band have planned to announce a number of second dates across Europe.
“All the European cities that have Saturday gigs by U2 — Dublin, Rome, London and Amsterdam — will all add a Sunday show.” they told the Irish Sun.
“Barcelona and Paris, where U2 play on a Tuesday, will add a gig on Wednesday. I’d say in Berlin, where U2 play on a Wednesday, they will announce a Tuesday concert. Brussels is the only city that will have just the one show,”
