Check your calendars lads, U2 tour dates are finally official. U2 will ignite their first tour since the questionable and over priced Pop Mart tour in Miami on March 24. This time around the band will be playing arenas and not stadiums, trying to cut down the intimacy factor. The Irish eyes will be smiling as they are scheduled to play 47 dates in 33 cities across these United States. The band will be supporting their latest majesty, All That You Can't Leave Behind, which earned the group a few Grammy nods for "Beautiful Day." The band has yet to confirm an opening act, but let's hope it's not the Spin Doctors.
