Now that's planning ahead: On the heels of postponing their June 27 show
at the TCF Bank Stadium in Dinkytown due to Bono's back surgery, U2 have announced a make-up show in Minneapolis on July 23, 2011. The band issued this statement from manager Paul McGuinness:
"We're delighted the dates are rescheduled and in all the same venues we originally planned to play. It hasn't been easy to accomplish this and I'd like to thank the managers of the many venues and sports teams across North America and Live Nation Global Touring for their help and cooperation in making this complex new plan possible. Above all we want to thank the U2 fans for bearing with us. They're the best and the band wants to get back to where they belong, surrounded by their audience."
Tickets from their June 27 show will be valid at the door of their 2011 show at the stadium, which also happens to be the last date of their rescheduled tour.
