U2 add extra London date due to phenomenal demand

Having sold out their first London date in minutes, U2 have added another show at Twickenham Stadium.

U2 will be celebrating 30 years since the release of their iconic The Joshua Tree record with another date at London’s Twickenham Stadium.

The band, who will be joined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on both dates, have already sold out their first show at the huge venue. The new date sees them play the record in full on the 9 July 2017, with tickets on sale Monday 23 January at 9:00.

Released back in 1987, The Joshua Tree was the band’s fifth studio album and features some of their most well-known hits including I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and With Or Without You.
