U2 Announce Rearranged Tour Dates
Irish rockers U2 have rearranged their Vertigo tour dates in Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand and Japan which were cancelled in March (06) after a member of guitarist The Edge's family fell ill. The Beautiful Day hitmakers will play eight shows in New Zealand and Australia in November (06), taking in Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, with superstar rapper Kanye West supporting. U2 will then fly to Japan to perform three concerts in Tokyo before playing their final show in Honolulu, Hawaii, on 9 December (06), where they will also be joined by grungers Pearl Jam. The band's manager PAUL MCGUINNESS says, "It's going to be a great night in Hawaii." The Vertigo tour took in North America, South America and Europe before it grinded to a halt after The Edge's daughter was reportedly diagnosed with leukaemia.
