Bono At The Beacon
"U2 frontman's pared back show is a triumph" (The Guardian)
"The performance of a lifetime" (USA Today)
Live Nation announced today a Spring 2023 run of eight dates for Bono's critically acclaimed 'Stories of Surrender' show at New York's iconic Beacon Theatre, starting April 16, 2023.
Tickets go on sale this Thursday (December 15, 10 am local time), with a presale for current U2.com subscribers opening tomorrow, Tuesday.
The announcement of Bono at the Beacon follows unprecedented demand for 'Stories of Surrender' - a show that left both audiences and critics cheering for more - in support of 'SURRENDER: 40 Songs, One Story', Bono's New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling memoir.
"Bono becomes a giant in his smallest concert" (El Mundo)
"Everyone has a Bono story, but Bono has the best Bono stories." (The Irish Times)
'Stories of Surrender,' produced by Live Nation and directed by Willie Williams, marks the release of a memoir in which one of the world's most iconic artists writes for the first time about what and who brought him success, while at the same time revealing his "...childhood insecurity, which is your only security" as a performer, and the faith that sustains him.
The storied surroundings of the Beacon Theatre perfectly illuminate Bono's role as bandleader and activist, as well as the remarkable lives entwined with his own. This is a life, alive and very present, on stage.
Bono will once again be joined by musicians Gemma Doherty (Harp, Keyboard, Vocals) and Kate Ellis (Cello, Keyboard, Vocals), as well as Musical Director Jacknife Lee for an evening of "words, music and some mischief..."
"At times, it was deeply poetic and professorial. Other times, he was the best storyteller in the pub." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Reveals a tender side to the swaggering rock star we thought we knew." (The Hollywood Reporter)
Tickets go on sale starting Thursday December 15, at 10am local time and will be available at: www.ticketmaster.com/bono. All tickets purchased online will be delivered as secure mobile tickets. There will be a four-ticket limit per person.
