U2 Play More Canadian Shows This Fall

Published: 2005-03-08
Adding onto their already massive tour itinerary for 2005, U2 have announced their finalized plans to return to North America this fall. The Irish quartet will be hitting 25 more cities come September, with the band stuck on the continent until Christmas Day nears. Fortunately for the citizens of Ottawa all their signatures have paid off as U2 have chosen the capital as one of their Canadian stops.

Unfortunately the tour in support of "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" won't reach as many Canadian cities as other U2 tours have in the past. The band has just two other Canadian destinations: two dates in Toronto at the beginning of the tour, and one in Montreal pulling up near the end.

With the addition of the 33 fall performances, it means that all in all U2 will play 59 North American shows this year. There's no word yet on who will be supporting the four-piece on the fall leg, but Kings of Leon will play the spring North American tour (including the two sold-out Vancouver shows in April).

Tickets for the fall tour dates go on sale this week, and there's no doubt that they'll be gone in an instant.
