As expected, tickets for the fall leg of U2’s Vertigo tour in North America sold out quickly, resulting in the addition of several dates. Twelve cities went on sale Saturday, bringing in 23 more sold-out performances.
This morning in New York, tickets quickly sold for Oct. 7-8 and 10 shows at Madison Square Garden. Two more concerts were added for Oct. 11 and 14, and also immediately sold out. As a result, a final two performances — Nov. 21-22 — have been confirmed, with tickets going on sale March 21.
On Saturday in Chicago, where fans had already purchased more than 76,000 tickets for sellouts on May 7, 9-10 and 12, an additional two shows for Sept. 20-21 sold out immediately.
In Boston, where U2 had previously sold out shows for May 24, 26 and 28, an additional two shows for Oct. 3-4 were announced and sold out in 10 minutes. A return engagement on Dec. 4-5 has also sold out.
Additional shows have been added in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Detroit and Los Angeles, while shows in Tampa, Fla., Houston, Dallas and Portland, Ore., were quick sellouts.
The 13 remaining fall Vertigo shows go on sale this weekend. The tour begins March 28 in San Diego.
As previously reported, U2 will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tonight (March 14) in New York.
