Fans U2 could be in for a special treat this June. SiriusXM is hosting an exclusive invite-only concert experience featuring the Irish rockers at New York City's renowned Apollo Theater, marking one their most intimate shows in recent years.
U2 are still fresh f the heels last year's The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, celebrating the 30th anniversary their eponymous No. 1 album. Their SiriusXM performance — which takes them on a brief detour from their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour — will consist material from their recent 14th studio album, Songs Experience.
“New York City and the U2 band have a unique history,” Bono said in a statement. “From the songs Lou Reed, Billie Holiday and the Ramones that taught us how to listen, to the New Yorkers at our earliest U.S. shows who taught us how to play, the souls New York and U2 have always been intertwined. The Apollo Theater is the heart New York’s musical soul, and to finally be playing our songs on the same stage where James Brown begged 'Please Please Please' is not only a bucket list moment, it’s an incredible honor.”
In the past, SiriusXM has hosted similar private concerts at the Apollo Theater featuring Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, James Taylor and Guns N' Roses. SiriusXM subscribers can win tickets through an e-mail invite, and more information can be found on the radio company's website.
