U2's Minneapolis concert to be announced Monday

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Rumors of the band's summer date at TCF Bank Stadium will soon be confirmed.


The worst-kept secret among local U2 fans since the one about the Edge not having any hair under his hat should become official Monday morning. That's when tour promoter Live Nation is expected to announce details of the Irish rock gods' performance next summer at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis

The show will be the inaugural concert at the new University of Minnesota football field. The date has already been widely reported to be June 27. The question now for fans: How do I get tickets, and how much are they? Typically with major concerts, pre-sale ticket announcements are sent to fans who sign up for the artist's e-mail alerts, in this case at www.U2.com. Tickets in other cities have sold for around $250 for a special VIP section, but most go for under $100, and at least 10,000 tickets in every city have been priced at around $30. The band's 360° Tour has been widely heralded as one of the most ambitious (and costliest) rock tours ever, with a spaceship-like rotating "bridge" 150 feet above the main stage and a giant, spinning LED video-screen system.
