U2 To Play The Apollo Theater In New York City
Irish rockers U2 are currently in the middle of the North American leg of their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour. The band will go without the extensive production they have been trotting around the continent for one night only, as U2 will play a special show for SiriusXM subscribers at the Apollo Theater in New York City on Monday, June 11.
U2’s upcoming visit to the Apollo will be their smallest show in NYC since a 2000 concert at Irving Plaza. “New York City and the U2 band have a unique history,” said frontman Bono in a press release. “From the songs of 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 of New York and U2 have always been intertwined. The Apollo Theater is the heart of 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.”
A recording of the concert will air following the show on SiriusXM’s channel 30 and via the company’s app as well as online at SiriusXM.com. Subscribers to the service will have the opportunity to win tickets through invitations that will be sent by e-mail. Those who have subscribed to SiriusXM since April 25 can also enter to win a grand prize that includes entry to the show, round trip airfare and hotel accommodations.
