U2’s 360° tour dates in the U.S., which were postponed because of Bono’s emergency back surgery, have all been rescheduled for the spring and summer of 2011. All tickets corresponding to previous dates will be honored at the rescheduled performances.
The 2010 European tour, which has not been affected, begins as scheduled Aug. 6 in Turin, Italy.
The rescheduled Seattle concert will be June 4, 2011, at Qwest Field.
“We’re delighted the dates are rescheduled and in all the same venues we originally planned to play,” U2 manager Paul McGuinness said in a statement.
“It hasn’t been easy to accomplish this, and I’d like to thank the managers of the many venues and sports teams across North America and Live Nation Global Touring for their help and cooperation in making this complex new plan possible.
“Above all we want to thank the U2 fans for bearing with us. They’re the best and the band wants to get back to where they belong, surrounded by their audience.”
The U2 360° Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring and sponsored in 2010 by BlackBerry.
