Rescheduled US tour dates have been announced for U2 in 2011. The tour will begin May 21 in Denver and go until July 23 in Minneapolis. The decision to delay the group’s tour while Bono recovered from back surgery cost the group $148 million in loses. Fortunately, all tickets for the original dates will be valid for the 2011 performances.
“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,” U2 manager Paul McGuinmess recently said in a statement.
