Ash have joined the ever-lengthening list of acts supporting U2 in Europe.
The Northern Ireland foursome are confirmed as the main support act for shows in Zurich (18 July), Milan (20th July and 21st July) and Rome (23rd July)
The band are currently touring the US with The Bravery, supporting their album Meltdown. They have also just pulled off a bit of a first - becoming the first band to have music featured on Star Wars merchandise. Their single Clones was chosen by George Lucas to be the title theme to the video game Republic Commando.
