U2 Announces Second New Zealand Concert


U2 announced a second show in Auckland at Mt Smart Stadium after their first show sold out in a few minutes today.

The second and final concert of the U2 2019 Joshua Tree Tour will take place in Auckland on Saturday, November 9 at Mt Smart Stadium.

Tickets for the second show will go on sale Monday, June 17 at 1:00 p.m., with a special pre-sale for U2 registered fans starting on Thursday, June 13.

The first show at Mt Smart Stadium began selling at 2 pm today, but sold out within minutes.

The concerts are part of the band's world tour, Joshua Tree Tour 2019, which follows the iteration of 2017 that celebrated 30 years since the release of their seminal album The Joshua Tree.

The 2019 tour makes them return to New Zealand for the first time since their U2 360 ° tour in 2010.

Joining the band in Auckland will be Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. "We are outside ourselves," they said in a statement.

"The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 was one of the funniest we've ever had. It will be an honor and a pleasure to share the stage with our friends and fellow players once again.

Bono said in a statement that the tour features "a lot of excitement."

"It only took me 30 years to learn to sing these songs and it's great to be able to say that I finally reached the band," he said.

"Our audiences have given The Joshua Tree a new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been so special to us, so much excitement, joy, it's a great ride … Auckland … We're coming to you."
