U2 will hit the road in support of Songs of Innocence next year when they embark on the Innocence + Experience Tour, which will find the rockers visiting 19 cities throughout North America and Europe. "We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience," Bono said in a statement. "More to be revealed!"

The Innocence + Experience Tour kicks off May 14th with a pair of shows at Vancouver's Rogers Arena, giving Bono ample time to recover from his recent "horrific" injuries. The jaunt will also mark the first time in nearly a decade that U2 plotted a tour of indoor arenas, which will give the audience a more intimate setting to hear the band perform Rolling Stone's Number One album of 2014 live.

"I think we will start small. We certainly can't get any bigger than the last tour," the Edge recently told Rolling Stone of U2's tour plans. The name of the tour also suggests the band might reveal some tracks from their planned Innocence follow-up Songs of Experience.

Tickets for the North American dates of the trek will go on sale Monday, December 8th to the general public. While not on the current itinerary, U2 also plan on returning to Dublin, Ireland at the end of next year for some special shows that will benefit the U2-initiated Music Generation project.
