Legendary Irish band U2 has never before given concerts in Russia, but will come to Moscow next summer for their first live show - the U2 360° Tour - in support of the band's latest studio album "No Line on the Horizon."

The tour started in 2009, and the rockers, inspired by their last album's success, decided to continue their tour in 2010. "European fans who missed out in 2009 will have a new opportunity to experience the U2 360° Tour extravaganza, with stops confirmed in Germany, Denmark, Finland, Russia, Austria, Greece, Turkey, France, Brussels, Spain and Portugal," the band's website reports.

U2 will travel with loads of technical gadgets and a huge stage crew to organize the dream performance for the stars. A perfectly round stage is among the hardware allowing each spectator see all the nuances of the show. Apart from the stage, the spectacle will also be equipped with numerous screens, and other visual effects.

The rock group was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 1976, and to the present time is one of the most popular and successful bands in the world. Their discography totals 17 studio albums, around 140 million copies of which have been sold worldwide.

In 2005, U2 were inducted into the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame". U2 members are also known for their active political and social involvement in the sphere of human rights and social justice.
