U2 singer Bono is heading out on a 14-city book tour in support of his forthcoming memoir.
The tour has been organised by Live Nation and Penguin Random House and will feature dates in North America and Europe.
Kicking off at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Wednesday, November 2, ‘Stories of Surrender’ will make stops in Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Berlin, Paris—and Bono’s hometown of Dublin— before wrapping on Monday, November 28 in Madrid.
Live Nation said: “The book tour is a limited run of theatre dates to mark the release of a memoir in which one of the world’s most iconic artists writes for the first time about his remarkable life and those he has shared it with. Bono will bring the stories of his life to life — live and in person— to 14 cities across North America and Europe.”
Tickets go on sale starting Friday, October 7 at 10am local time and will be available via the Ticketmaster website. Each ticket purchased comes with a copy of Bono’s forthcoming book, Surrender, to be released on November 1, 2022. All tickets purchased online will be delivered as secure mobile tickets.
“I miss being on stage and the closeness of U2’s audience,” said Bono. “In these shows I’ve got some stories to sing, and some songs to tell… Plus I want to have some fun presenting my ‘me-moir’, Surrender, which is really more of a ‘we-moir’ if I think of all the people who helped me get from there to here.”
Stops on the tour include Los Angeles’ The Orpheum Theatre, Boston’s Orpheum Theatre, The London Palladium and Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre.
