Camp Nou, starting point for U2 tour


Four years after their last visit, U2 will be back at the Camp Nou on June 30. The band has announced this on their official website, www.u2.com.

But the Irish rock outfit’s show at the Camp Nou will not be any ordinary affair. It will be the opening gig of their U2 360º tour, which will take them all around the world, playing at 18 venues, including 14 in Europe, and the Barcelona concert will be their only appearance in Spain.

The plan is for these shows to differ from the norm. Rather than playing at one end of the ground, the stage will be set up in the centre of the pitch, which will add a unique feel to the way the crowd views the band.

Last visit in August 2005

U2 are no strangers to the Camp Nou. On August 7, 2005, they were here following the release of their latest album, in what was called the Vertigo Tour. A sell-out crowd of 80,000 watched the performance.

Tickets for members
Like with the Bruce Springsteen concerts last July 2008, FC Barcelona will be providing a certain number of tickets to its own members. Members wishing for tickets will have to apply to the club and if there are more requests than tickets allotted, then a draw will take place to decide who gets the chance to purchase tickets.

Shortly, we will be publishing full information about the process for applying for tickets to see U2 live.
