U2 Announces Phoenix Concerts May 22-23 at Talking Stick Resort Arena
U2 is making its first stop in Phoenix since 2009.
You know how people are always complaining that good bands never come to Phoenix?
Those people can put this on their Sonoran hot dogs and eat it: U2 announced two dates in Phoenix at the venue formerly known as US Airways Center, Talking Stick Resort Arena. The band will be in town May 22 and May 23.
Tickets go on sale Monday, December 8.
What makes the Phoenix dates even more surprising is that the tour U2 announced only visits 19 cities, and only six of them are in the United States.
The tour is in honor of U2's recently released album, Songs of Innocence.
"We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two," said Bono in a press release, "and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience."
