On Friday September 3, 2010 – 14 years after their first visit to Greece, the legendary U2 will get on stage at the Olympic Stadium in Athens. Ticket sale will start during the following weeks and tickets for the arena will cost €55 but there will also be 10 000 tickets for €30.

The organizers of the concert promise that ticket prices will be much lower than the ones we have been use to in the past few years and 85% of the tickets will not exceed €95. Members of the official U2 website will have the opportunity to buy tickets earlier then the official release date.

The Irish band came to Thessaloniki in 1997, when they were on tour promoting their album Pop. Back then Thessaloniki was announced to be the cultural capital of Europe. Athens is included in the second round of their tour 360˚ Tour in 2010.

The band’s shows are famous for always surprising their fans with something original and spectacular – this time the concept is that the audience can watch the concert from every angle, because in the center of the stadium there will be a huge round steel stage, lifted 45 meters above the groundl and a cylindrical LED monitor will hang from it.

U2’s tour this year is very successful and right now the coolest boys from Dublin are leaving for the US. Before doing that they made sure to surprise their fans that their tour will continue also in 2010. The tour started after their album No Line On The Horizon hit the market in February 2009.

Next year U2’s 360˚Tour will go to Germany, Denmark, Finland, Russia, Austria, Greece, Turkey, France, Belgium, Spain and Portugal. In order for the concert idea to work, all tickets need to be sold, even the ones behind the stage.
