U2, the ultra-famous Irish rock band, which Apple tried to force feed its latest album “the Songs of Innocence” to millions of iPhone users, is on a North American and European tour that’s practically sold out. To show how insanely popular they are, the band is playing Madison Square Garden for 8 back-to-back shows over two weeks. And, all dates are sold-out!!!
The 20 cities tour, called U2 INNOCENCE + EXPERIENCE TOUR 2015 #U2ieTOUR, started May 14, 2015 in Vancouver, Canada at the Rogers Arena, and will end November 15, 2015 in Paris, France at the Bercy. The only location where tickets is still available is in London on November 2, 2015.
The first day of U2’s Madison Square Garden concert run was on July 18. On the July 22nd concert Jimmy Fallon of the Late Night show was spotted holding up a sign in the audience, and was invited to the stage to perform with Bono. U2 peformed on Jimmy Fallon’s first day on The Late Night show on February 14, 2014.
Fallon was in the audience during the concert, with a sign in front of his face that said “Singer with a broken finger.” U2 frontman Bono invited The Tonight Show host on stage, and Fallon quipped, “I’m afraid of Irish men that fall down and injure themselves,” referencing Bono’s 2014 biking injury that led U2 to cancel a week-long Tonight Show residency. Fallon joined the band in a rendition of “Desire,” eliciting cheers for his impression of Bono while singing. “It’s not easy being Bono,” he joked. The song was soon followed by a surprise appearance by hip hop group The Roots — Fallon’s band on The Tonight Show — who joined U2 for a performance of “Angel of Harlem.”
U2 performed many of their hits including “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “Beautiful Day” and “Bullet the Blue Sky.” The band closed the show with a rendition of “One.”
