From Patti Smith to Kanye West
Lowdown on very cool line-up of acts playing with U2 in the next few months.
We already reported that Dashboard Confessional will be opening for the first shows in Toronto – now we can confirm that they’ll be staying on the road with U2 for shows in Chicago (Sep 21 and 22), Minneapolis (Sep 23) and Milwaukee (Sep 25).
Then Keane, who played with U2 during the summer in Europe, will get on board the Vertigo train. The English band will play shows in Boston (October 3/4) and New York’s Madison Square Garden (October 7th-14th).
When U2 return to Madison Square Garden (November 21st/22nd) the legendary Patti Smith will be performing with them.
Arcade Fire will open when the band return to Canada for shows in Ottawa (Nov 25th) and Montreal (Nov 26/28th) and Kanye West is set to play dates in December, from the 14th through the 19th.
More news on who is playing where and when with U2 this Fall as we get it. But that’s a pretty cool start!
