Eight Must-See Summer Concerts in NYC - U2 at Madison Square Garden

U2 Rocks Eight Summer Concerts in NYC



Madison Square Garden

4 Pennsylvania Plaza



July 18-19th, 22nd-23rd, 26-27th, 30th-31st






One of the world's most popular bands is taking over Madison Square Garden for a whopping eight shows this July. All but the last two dates (July 30th and 31st) have sold-out at the time this blog was written - so if you still need tickets, read no further and order them NOW! Seeing U2 in NYC is a truly epic experience, paralleled only by catching the superstar act in their hometown of Dublin. Simultaneously large-scale and intimate, this tour is a special one. Whether you've seen them a dozen times or never before, it promises to satisfy fans new and old, with a scaled-back approach and music-first aesthetic that perfectly fits the band's place in rock today.



After playing outdoor shows to overflowing crowds in stadiums and super-high-capacity venues for over a decade, U2 offers fans a more personal experience this time around. The tour follows the release of their 13th album, Songs of Innocence, with at least a pair of shows in a total of 19 cities around the world. To the delight of fans, frontman Bono has said that each night in each city will be a different experience. That makes New Yorkers VERY happy, with a total of eight shows from which to choose. No matter the date(s) you plan on attending, expect over 2½ hours of music, a mix of close to 25 songs from across their catalog, tons of audience interaction, and a huge screen so everyone can enjoy the show up close.
