Bono unveils Stories of Surrender New York City dates

Bono will play eight dates at the Beacon Theatre

Live Nation has announced a spring 2023 run of eight dates for Bono’s critically acclaimed Stories of Surrender at New York’s iconic Beacon Theatre, starting April 16th.

The announcement of Bono at The Beacon comes following unprecedented demand for Stories of Surrender – a show that left both audiences and critics cheering for more (read our review) – in support of Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story, the New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling memoir by Bono – artist, activist and U2 lead singer – available now. Stories of Surrender, produced by Live Nation and directed by Willie Williams, marks the release of a memoir in which one of the world’s most iconic artists writes for the first time about what and who brought him success, while at the same time revealing his “…childhood insecurity, which is your only security” as a performer, and the faith that sustains him.

The storied surroundings of the Beacon Theatre perfectly illuminate Bono’s role as bandleader and activist, as well as the remarkable lives entwined with his own. This is a life, alive and very present, on stage.

Bono will once again be joined by musicians Gemma Doherty on harp, keyboard and vocals and Kate Ellis on cello, keyboard and vocals, as well as Musical Director Jacknife Lee for an evening of “words, music and some mischief…” paid subscribers will have access to tickets starting Tuesday, December 13th at 10 am ET. Tickets go on sale starting Thursday December 15th at 10 am local time and will be available via Ticketmaster. All tickets purchased online will be delivered as secure mobile tickets. There will be a four-ticket limit per person.
