Rumors Are Always True: U2 Hits Reliant Stadium October 14
Just as Rocks Off suspected, U2 and Live Nation announced Tuesday evening that the Irish band's record-smashing 360 tour will stop at Reliant Stadium Wednesday, October 14, with "Supermassive Black Hole" UK space-rock trio Muse opening. Tickets for the Houston show - and, if you must, the October 12 date at Arlington's New Cowboys Stadium - go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, April 20. Further ticket information will be available shortly.
Don't dawdle, either. To date, the 360 tour has sold more than 2.5 million tickets in Europe and North America. The October 25 show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., which liquidated 90,000 tickets, was the fastest sellout and will be the largest concert attendance in the venue's history. Second shows have already been added in Chicago, Toronto, Boston and New York, but don't count on that happening here.
U2's 12th album, No Line on the Horizon, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last month, and continues to hold fast in the Top 10.
