Where: Mt Smart Stadium, Beasley Ave, Auckland
With current ticket sales in excess of 3,400,000 world-wide, U2 // Vertigo //2005 is firmly entrenched to become the top selling tour of 2005. Ticket demand was so overwhelming in the Northern Hemisphere that all seats for the 110 show world tour were sold prior to the tour kick off in San Diego last March.
Now New Zealand, your wait is over! It's been 12 years since U2 last played to thousands of New Zealand fans. U2 // Vertigo // 2006 will commence in early February with stops planned in Mexico, South America, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. The Australian & New Zealand leg of the tour promises fans no less of a passionate spectacle than the shows to date.
U2 began their Vertigo // 2005 tour March 28th and throughout North America and Europe they delighted both music critics and fans. In Europe, sales were so brisk that box office records were shattered throughout the UK and in Spain, Dublin, Paris & Vienna. In North America enthusiast fan demand resulted in numerous multiple play dates including: 10 sold out New York area performances; 7 Boston play dates and 6 shows each in Los Angeles and Chicago.
U2//Vertigo follows the release of the band's 11th album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb which has sold over 2.85 million copies in the United States. The "Vertigo 2005 // U2 Live from Chicago" long form DVD will be released on November 20th. Filmed at the United Centre in Chicago during the bands May performances, this DVD captures the passion and intensity of U2 live.
