U2 adds additional Joshua Tree 2017 tour dates

U2 has added four additional dates to the European leg of its The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour. The dates were added due to overwhelming demand after Monday’s (Jan 16th) public on sale. The four shoes are second shows added to Twickenham, London on July 9th, the Olympic Stadium in Rome on July 16th, the Stade de France in Paris on July 26th and the Amsterdam Arena on July 30th.

Tickets for these shows will go on general sale Monday, January 23rd with a presale to U2.com subscribers later this week.

More shows are expected to be added as needed, although no specific information has been given as of press time.

Last week, Live Nation announced that U2 will return to select stadiums this year with U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s classic album. Each show will include a performance of The Joshua Tree in its entirety, with support from one of a number of special guests including Mumford & Sons, OneRepublic and The Lumineers in North America and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in Europe.

Tickets will be general admission on the floor and reserved seating in the stands. There will be a four ticket limit for subscriber purchases and a six ticket limit commencing with public sales. In North America, all floor tickets will be paperless unless otherwise noted.
