From the beginning of 2015, the Irish band U2 will begin an intense promotion of the album Songs of Innocence, coinciding with the start of their next world tour, which will be named Innocence + Experience Tour, which will take the Irish to 19 cities in Europe and the United States. The Innocence + Experience Tour is scheduled to begin on May 14 with a pair of concerts at Vancouver's Rogers Arena, a tour that marks the first time in a decade that U2 has planned an indoor tour (theaters, etc.), an ideal opportunity to experience the music of the Irish band in a closer and more intimate setting.
The tour will start in its European section in the city of Turin (Italy) on September 4 and will arrive in Spain in October, with only two concerts, on the 5th and 6th, at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona. Tickets for the dates in the United States have gone on sale on December 8 and in Europe since the 9 of this month. Notably, the name of the tour also suggests that the band could play songs from Songs of Experience, the album that will be the successor to Songs of Innocence.
In a press release about the tour, Bond commented: “We will try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two and have fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More information will be revealed soon ". The Edge also stated in a recent interview: “I think we will start small. We certainly can't do something bigger than our last tour. ".
