U2 Announces Elevation Tour

| No Comments

1.9.01 - Launch.com

As expected, U2 announced its 2001 arena tour today (January 9). Billed as the Elevation Tour, after the new song "Elevation," U2 will play indoor arenas in support of its latest album, All That You Can't Leave Behind. It's the first time the band will play an extended run of non-stadium dates in North America since the first leg of the ZooTV outing in 1992.

Tickets for select dates go on sale Saturday (January 13), with prices ranging from $130 for Gold Circle seats to $85 to $45 for floor tickets (not seats), which will be general admission. The stage has been designed for unobstructed views from every angle, so those behind the stage will have just as good a view as those in front.

There is a two-ticket-per-person limit for "best of the house" general admission, and four tickets for reserved seats. Early birds, take note -- those buying their tickets on the first day of sales at the box office won't have to pay any service fees.

P.J. Harvey is the opening act for all dates. U2 will announce a European itinerary shortly. Also, there is always the chance that more U.S dates will be added, depending on ticket demand.
