Tickets in Horsens, Denmark sold so quickly that a second and final performance (August 16th) was added and was an immediate sell out. The Austrian performance in Vienna at Ernst Happel Stadium sold out Saturday and the U2 date in Helsinki, Finland was another immediate sell-out this morning.

Tickets for the U2 360 show at Seville’s Estadio Olimpico De La Cartuja go on sale this Thursday with the concerts in Frankfurt, Hannover and Munich on-sale this Saturday. Performances have also been announced in Moscow, Athens, Istanbul, Paris and Coimbra with additional cities, dates and venues to be announced.

For the current and forthcoming tour, a unique staging configuration with excellent sight lines provides an intimate audience experience at a price affordable to all fans. With its cylindrical video system, massive stage, rotating bridges and of course, the U2 passion – the experience becomes an amazing event.
