U2 IS EMBARKING ON A WORLD TOUR!



Written by Don't Panic
08 Monday 08th December 2014

Like industrious MCs giving away their mixtape outside a tube station, U2 recently forced us to own their new album. One day we woke up and there it was: Songs of Innocence, violating the modesty of our well-crafted iTunes after it was uploaded there for free and without warning - in the wake of yet another Apple update.

As the internet exploded into a volatile, beetroot-faced rage, the people who were actually pretty psyched to get a free album from Bono, the Edge and the rest, didn't make much of a splash. Yet despite what the critics would make you think, these people exist. In their millions. It's why U2 are about to embark on a world tour and no, you won't be forced to go. Those seats will be filled by fans before you can say 'involuntary free download.'

Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration, but you are going to have to hurry if you do actually want to get tickets. So get on it and buy your tickets here. Even if you don't like their latest stuff, there's a reason they don't even have to charge people for it - and it isn't just because of tax evasion.

It's also because they made some seminal albums, and have some loyal-to-the-death fans. In this age of fads and YouTube celebs, maybe it's worth going just to hear what consistent success sounds like?

Here's the full list of dates. For more info check out the U2 website and follow them on Facebook.
