Hot on the heels of their sold out European tour, the U2 360° Tour has confirmed additional shows in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico City and South Africa. By the time the tour returns to North America, it will have been seen by well over 4 million fans.
U2 Baltimore fans will now get their long awaited opportunity to see the show that's been called the "Tour of the Year" when it arrives on June 22nd.
"I am very excited about U2's decision to play in Baltimore as part of their 360 World Tour," said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. "I can't wait to welcome the biggest rock band in the world to the home of America's greatest football team, M&T Bank Stadium. It will be a 'Beautiful Day' for Baltimore!"
Dick Cass, President of Baltimore Ravens stated, "It's very exciting for the Ravens to be part of a group that is helping bring the world renowned U2 to Baltimore. This will be a great event for M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore and the state of Maryland. Downtown will be alive on June 22 and the days surrounding the concert."
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 360° 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.
