U2 wraps 2011 tour in Pittsburgh
October 12, 2010 - Andy Gray
Live Nation announced this morning that the final date on U2’s 2011 stadium tour will be at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field on July 26.
U2 had to scrap part of its 2010 tour due to a back injury suffered by lead singer Bono. In addition to playing those rescheduled dates, U2 has added a few additional shows, including the one in Pittsburgh.
The band will use the same set design it used last year. Here’s how it’s described in the press release: “With a cylindrical video system of interlocking LED panels, and a steel structure rising 150 feet from the floor over a massive stage with rotating bridges, the band has truly created an intimate 360º experience for concert goers. Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360 design, which affords an unobstructed view for the audience.
Tickets are $250, $95, $55 and $30 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday (Oct. 18) at www.livenation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and by calling 800-745-3000.
