U2: How to prepare yourself for their upcoming 2018 tour dates


Bono and his band are about to drop a tour dates. It’s a fact. It’s also a fact that getting tickets for U2’s next tour is going to be a battleground. If reading this article doesn’t appeal much to you, get yourself straight onto our partner site Next Concert. Sticking with the article, let us take you through what we know. 

Having already announced an extensive run of dates for the US and Canada, U2’s “eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE 2018” tour is more than likely coming our way, and very soon. With their “Songs Of Experience” hot off the press, their European and UK tour dates will be just around the corner. What’s more, U2 accompanied their “Get Out Of Your Own Way” single release with the announcement of a European tour for next year.

The only trouble for fans will be getting their hands on tickets to see U2 live. The band’s last tour, their iconic 30th anniversary “The Joshua Tree” tour was immensely popular selling over 2.71 million tickets. That’s a lot of fellow fans to go up against in the struggle for tickets.

In 2017, “The Joshua Tree” tour included:

  • 51 shows across 3 continents and 15 countries
  • An epic sell-out show in London’s Twickenham Stadium
  • Primary ticket platforms saturated (long online queues, sites crashing, empty baskets…)
  • Tickets being resold for up to £800 on the black market and on ticket resale platforms
  • Over 150,000 fans over the moon and thousands having missed out because of ticketing frustrations

For their new upcoming tour, there is speculation that U2 will potentially be performing at London’s O2 Arena sometime between September and November next year.

If you’re up for testing the waters and trying to get your tickets yourself, we wish you good luck. If you’d rather not play with fire and miss the chance of SEEING U2 LIVE (which is a kind of a big deal!), we’ve got a plan so that you don’t end up spending hours hunched over your computer crying after you empty your bank account onto ticket resale platforms only to find your tickets are for two seats in the back row. Check out our partner site Next Concert to secure your U2 concert tickets and sit back and relax as they take care of the whole booking process for you. It’s as simple as that.
