U2 add an extra Croke Park date for July 2009

Posted: 18th March 2009

Two extra dates have been added to the UK/ Eire part of U2's 360° Tour.

The band will now play back-to-back Croke Park dates on 24th and 25th July, supported by Glasvegas on the 24th, Kaiser Chiefs on the 25th. Glasvegas support the band when they are playing in their hometown at Hampden Park in Glasgow on 18th August and on the 22nd August at the Millennium Stadium date.

Elbow are the support act for Wembley on 14th August and the Sheffield date on 20th August.

In-keeping with the 360° theme, the stage will enable the audience to have an unimpeded view of the band.

Tickets for the European dates went on sale on Friday and were snapped-up in 24 hours. Tickets for the UK dates range from £30 - £150 and go on sale this Friday 20th March at 9AM.

The Croke park tickets also go on sale on Friday at the earlier time of 8AM, costing between €33.60 and €131.50.
