Attention: U2 Set to Play Dangerously Close to The Philippines
No, U2 isn't quite making its way to the Philippines—yet. But here’s the next best thing.
The legendary Irish rockers have announced Asia and Oceania tour dates in support of the 30th anniversary of their seminal album The Joshua Tree, and if you’re hardcore fans, you’re going to want to be there.
The tour starts on November 8 in Auckland, New Zealand, and continues over the next few days and weeks in Brisbane (Nov 12), Melbourne (Nov 15), Adelaide (Nov 19), Sydney (Nov 22) and Perth (Nov 27). The band then flies to Tokyo for two dates (December 4 and 5) and Seoul (December 8).
The band’s website mentions a stop in Singapore, where Bono and the gang will be playing for the first time ever, although details about a date and venue have yet to be announced. If you ask us, the band will likely play in the Lion City either after Australia (on Nov 29 or 30) or after Seoul (December 10 onwards).
People who’ve seen them swear U2 live is a life-changing show, and Bono is pushing 60, so if there was ever a time to catch the “Where The Streets have No Name” and “With Or Without You” hitmakers, now is it.
