Despite what critics are saying about U2's new album No Line On The Horizon, we're sure they won't have any trouble selling out the stadiums they plan to visit on their upcoming world tour to support the new LP.
While all of the European dates have been announced -- with most of the tickets available for pre-sale starting this Friday, March 13 -- only four U.S. dates have been announced thus far. U2 will kick off their U.S. leg on September 12 at Chicago's Soldier Field with dates in Toronto, Boston and New York to follow. The tour -- dubbed the 360° Tour -- plans on also making stops in Atlanta, GA; Charlottesville, VA; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; Norman, OK; Phoenix, AZ; Tampa, FL; Washington, DC and Vancouver, BC. Those dates are being promised to come "soon."
As for the price, well in a Billboard report, U2's manager Paul McGuinness was quoted as saying: "U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85% of the tickets priced at less than €95 [$119.40], general admission floor tickets priced at €55 [$69.12] and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at around €30 [$37.70], we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view."
