Elevation 2001 Tour, Autumn Dates Announced
U2's Elevation 2001 Tour will return to North America in October for shows in fifteen cities.
Kicking off in Notre Dame, the legendary home of "The Fighting Irish", on October 10th, the tour will visit Montreal and Hamilton in Canada, Chicago, Baltimore, New York, New Jersey, Providence, Philadelphia, Austin, Denver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and San Francisco before finishing up in Las Vegas on November 18th.
As with the first North American leg and the European leg, U2 will offer General Admission floor tickets giving fans the best view in the house for $45 per ticket. With nearly half of the seats in the arena priced at $45, additional tickets will also be available at $85 with a very limited number of golden-circle seating at $130.
Tickets for some of these dates go on sale this weekend, Saturday 15th September. These shows are: Notre Dame, Montreal, Hamilton, Chicago, Baltimore, Providence and Philadelphia.
Registered members of U2.COM will have a chance to participate in a pre-sale of a very limited number of tickets, in advance of the general on sale date. (Please note, the U2.COM pre-sale is a small allocation compared to the general public onsale, which begins this weekend. There is no guarantee of tickets by participating in the pre-sale.)
U2.COM members will receive further details and their pre-sale password via e-mail later this week.
