U2 confirms that the U2 360 Tour will open at the Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona on 30th June. The U2 360 Tour is sponsored by BlackBerry and is the band’s first stadium outing since the Vertigo Tour 05/06 and follows the release of their new album, No Line On The Horizon.

Produced by Live Nation Global Touring, U2 360 will visit 14 cities across Europe including dates in Milan,  Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, London, and Glasgow. The European tour will be followed by dates in North America beginning at Chicago’s Soldier Field on September 12th, 2009.

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. U2 360 also marks the first time a band has toured in stadiums with such a unique and original structure (which can be viewed at 360.U2.com).

“U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85 percent of the tickets priced at less than $95.00, general admission floor tickets priced at $55.00 and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at the $30.00 price range, we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view,” says U2’s manager Paul McGuinness.

That is until TicketMaster gets involved.Let’s see what kind of problems they create with this one.
