Band are set to off kick their global jaunt tomorrow (May 14)
U2 have posted a teaser video for their forthcoming Songs Of Innocence + Experience world tour.
The clip, which you can watch above, shows the band playing behind a giant LED screen, a catwalk, a circular stage and drummer Larry Mullen Jr strolling about with a marching band snare.
U2 are due to kick off their world tour in Canada tomorrow (May 14).
They recently performed a rehearsal set at the Pacific Coliseum in the country, which saw the four piece perform seven songs from their 2014 album including ‘The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)’, ‘Iris (Hold Me Close)’ and an acoustic version of ‘Every Breaking Wave’.
The band also made a special appearance on US TV’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon last week, performing live and taking part in a sketch that saw them busking in public whilst in disguise.
U2 were meant to perform every night for a week on the US chat show last year, however, injuries sustained by Bono during a bike accident in New York meant they had to postpone their promotional duties.
Bono also appeared in a sketch poking fun at his recent bike accident. “There’s nothing cool about coming off a pushbike,” he said said on the show. “It’s not a Harley Davidson. There was Lycra involved. For an Irish rock star…”
The singer recently revealed that he is still struggling with the injuries suffered in his cycling accident. The frontman underwent five hours of surgery after the incident which occurred in New York’s Central Park last November. At the time it was reported that he suffered several serious injuries, including a “facial fracture involving the orbit of his eye”. Bono went into more detail in January, revealing that his hand had been so damaged that he may never regain the ability to play the guitar.
The 55-year-old recently said he still can’t bend two of his fingers.
The group will perform in the UK this October and November over eight dates in London’s O2 Arena and Glasgow’s SSE Hydro.
U2’s Innocence + Experience tour 2015 UK dates:
