EXPERIENCE + INNOCENCE TOUR
After a very successful year of touring for the 30th anniversary of the album, The Joshua Tree, U2 are hitting the road in 2018 with their latest tour, Experience & Innocence! The tour will be in support of their album 'Songs Of Experience' which is set to be released early December.
The album serves as a sequel to the band's 2014 album 'Songs of Innocence' and the tour will be the sequel of 2015's 'Innocence & Experience' tour. The band's previous tours remain some of the highest grossing concert series of all time, which isn't surprising given the boys' enviable back catalogue and their penchant for jaw-dropping stage design.
Formed in Dublin, 1976
U2 are approaching their 40th Anniversary as a band. Comprised of Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton, the band's early sound drew heavily from post-punk bands like Television, but by 1987's world-conquering Joshua Tree, it was a grand, romantic rock, steeped in the influence of Americana. Just when their new found signature sound was threatening to go stale, they reinvented themselves again, with the electronica-tinged trilogy of Achtung Baby, Zooropa and Pop. Into the 2000s, U2 returned to the business of making guitar orientated anthems, producing huge hits like 'Beautiful Day' and 'Vertigo'.
Throughout their career, one of U2's trademarks has always been their spectacular live shows, from the multimedia Zoo TV Tour to 2009-2011's 360 Tour, which featured a huge spider-like sound system, and remains the highest grossing concert tour of all time.
