U2 Beef Up Tour Schedule

Continued sell-outs prompt U2 to add more dates to Elevation tour

When U2 first announced the North American leg of their upcoming Elevation tour earlier this month, the initial schedule left ample room for growth, with only one night scheduled in each city. Two weeks later, with shows selling out at a brisk pace, additional nights have been added to ten cities, fattening the once-svelte thirty-three-date trek to forty-seven.

U2 have already added additional nights in Calgary; San Jose, California; Anaheim, California; Chicago; Toronto; Boston; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; New York and East Rutherford, New Jersey. Most of the new shows have already sold out. The next batch of tickets -- for the tour's stops in Houston; Lexington, Kentucky; Pittsburgh; Columbus, Ohio; Milwaukee; Indianapolis; Albany, New York and yet another date in Chicago -- go on sale Saturday.

Whether new dates will be added to any of those cities, too, remains to be seen, but the band's running out of breathing room fast. Apart from an orphan travel day between cities here and there, the revised schedule affords U2 only one week off in the thick of the tour -- the seven days between their potentially last night in Chicago, May 16th, and their first in Toronto, May 24th.
