U2 Tour iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Recent News
Believe it or not this tour almost didn’t happen. Last year in 2014 the lead man of the group Bono got in a quite serious bicycle accident. Things were looking good for him to recover in time to start new concerts as early as April or May 2015. This was a big hit to the group as they had just released a brand-new album, ‘Songs of Innocence’, that they were hoping to begin promoting with new live shows.
Thankfully everything worked out for the best and now this world renowned rock group has already begun there more than 20 city world tour. As previously mentioned, they are calling it their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour.

World Records Are Going To Be Smashed
The last two or that the band went on called the 360 tour also had multiple legs and they trekked all over the earth. The band set a record that is unlikely soon be bested by anyone except the band themselves. Their previous concerts made a total of $740 million and they sold just over 7 million tickets throughout the life of the shows. The previous record holders or the Rolling Stones with there a bigger bang tour. They managed to sell just shy of $560 million worth of U2 tickets back in 2005 through 2007.
The guys have not played inside arenas for more than 10 years, the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE will be there true return as they step back on some of the largest stages the world has to offer. You could see multiple shows from the band in the same city if you wanted to. Just because it’s the same band in the same city doesn’t mean the show is going to be the same. They plan on having a completely different feeling from show to show, with different production, and entirely different set lists. If you attend two or three shows you could see them play all of your favorite songs from the band’s catalog.
Fans on every continent are already greatly anticipating the return of their favorite band. Who knows, maybe they could even set another record after their previously hugely successful 360 concerts. They have one of the best companies in the business behind them in live nation. They have rich experience when it comes to putting on some of the most incredible live show experiences in the business. Not only are they reliable, and speedy when it comes to getting venues ready for shows, they also make sure to take the environment into consideration.
The Top-Selling Band In The World
This group is the biggest draw in the entire world. In the last 30 years they played over 600 shows. In the combined revenue from all of these shows was $1.5 billion. This is according to the very accurate reporting of the number one chart company in the business Billboard. Their previous worldwide concerts had just over 100 shows and made them over $700 million. This broke all previous records. With multiple venues scheduled for tons of the biggest cities in the world, it’s possible that we may see the same type of numbers that they had on their last string of concerts.
Trying to regain intimacy
The reason that the band was able to make so much money and sell so many U2 tickets not counting their amazing star power is the fact that they were playing huge stadium venues. These places have enough seating to fit in entire town some of the time. With their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE shows they are planning to return to arenas which are much more intimate, but smaller type of venue. They actually haven’t played this sort of venue since their 2005 through 2007 show called vertigo. This was also a highly successful U2 tour bringing in just below $400 million.
During the 360 days, they played stadiums exclusively, that’s the reason why they were able to make so much money. During that time there weren’t many concerts going on that had a huge drawing power so the market was rather stagnant.
This didn’t stop the band from completely selling out every Stadium they visited.
There aren’t many musicians in the world who even have the capability to sell out venues like stadiums. This didn’t stop the guys from remembering their roots though, their worldwide fame today is thanks to the very arenas that they played more than 30 years ago.
Amazing Production Values On iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE
Every new series of concerts that they put on they break the mold when it comes to production values. They often set trends that reverberate throughout the entire industry each time they go on a new tour. Just like the band stuns the crowd with their ‘claw stage’on the 360 concerts, they will be creating an even more innovative stage by playing the concerts in a huge bowl that is going to take up the majority of the floor on the arena. This year shows are also going to have incredible video components. They will have an enormous screen above the stage that will be double-sided so each fan in the crowd no matter where they’re sitting will have an up close and personal experience with the band at each venue.
Innovating The Multiple Concerts Per City Technique
Apart from the stage in the production values of the shows, they will also be bringing a twist to the way that they are composing their set lists this time around. It is not an accident that they both several shows for each city they are visiting, and they won’t be simply rehashing the show for multiple nights in a row.
