U2 warn fans of fake tour scam

Band say they have not confirmed summer dates yet

U2 have warned fans not to buy tickets from touts for a rumoured summer tour, because they are fake.

The message, explaining that the band have no confirmed live dates for the summer yet, was posted on U2.com.

It warned: “No tickets are available and no shows have been announced.

There are no tour dates for the band at the moment so please don’t get stung by buying tickets for shows that don’t exist.”

U2 were the subject of a similar ticket scam last year.

U2 are set to release their new album ‘No Line on the Horizon’ on March 2, the follow up to 2004’s ‘How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb’.
