U2 Concert Tickets
U2’s “innocence + experience” tour will grace 20 cities in Europe and North America from May through November, 2015. The band, just shy of 40 years in the business still draws amazing crowds and will no doubt put on an incredible show for U2 ticket holders in various locales from Vancouver, BC to Denver to Paris, France.
It all began for U2 in 1976 when Larry Mullen hung a sign on Dublin’s Temple Mount School saying “Drummer seeks musicians to form band”. As a result of this ad, four teenagers met in Mullen’s kitchen and what would become U2 was formed. Originally calling themselves “Feedback”, Bono on vocals, The Edge on guitar, Adam Clayton and Mullen on the rhythm section of bass and drums, were inspired by punk and went through another name change to “The Hype” before settling on U2 and built a local reputation based on the pure passion of their performances.
After a few years where they could not gain significant traction, they were signed to Island Records in 1980. U2’s first single “11 O’clock Tick Tock” was released in May of 1980 followed by their debut album Boy just five months later with the promotional single “I Will Follow”. Many subsequent albums followed including Joshua Tree which went on to sell more than 20 million copies and at the 1987 Grammy Awards, won ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Rock Performance’, the first of what has become a record-breaking run of Grammy wins.
U2 has never stopped creating music and touring, winning the hearts of many generations of music lovers. In the fall of 2014, in collaboration with Apple, they released ‘Songs of Innocence’ whose eleven tracks were automatically downloaded into the music libraries of 500 million customers in 119 countries globally.
Their “innocence +experience” tour should draw huge crowds as U2 plays their signature sound that draws from 70’s rock and punk to early 80’s electronica and soul.
U2 Tickets have been available since the Irish rock group of lead singer Bono (Paul David Hewson), guitarist The Edge (David Howell Evenas, bassist Adam Clayton, and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. formed in Dublin, Ireland way back in 1976,. Then they were not the international super group they are today, but a five-piece band called Feedback.
U2, then as The Hype, won a talent show in Limerick. The prize money was nominal in comparison to the unintentional gift, free studio time from CBS Records' Jackie Hayden. Here, another band suggested the group change its name. They found a name inspired by a famous spy plane, U2. As the group exploded in popularity with the release of their debut album and first platinum offering, Boy, the U2 Tour Tickets began to give the band name another meaning. Suddenly, U2 meant that you too, as part of the audience, should be a apart of the concert experience. This philosophy has helped make U2 concert tickets for tour dates across the globe an undeniable force.
Every year fans hope to hear of U2 tour dates for a venue near them. This has been true since the group began releasing an incredible run of platinum albums in the 1980s (October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, The Joshua Tree, and Rattle and Hum) and truly became living rock deities in the 1990s beginning with Achtung Baby and continuing with Zooropa and Pop. Since the turn of the century U2 has released three albums: All That You Can't Leave Behind, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, and No Line on the Horizon.
