After grossing $316 million on their 5-month-long 30th anniversary "The Joshua Tree" stadium tour this year, U2 is coming back to our area next summer. The foursome from Ireland will perform June 9 at the renovated Nassau Coliseum and June 25 at Madison Square Garden.

The tour will support the band’s new album, “Songs of Experience,” which drops Dec. 1 and acts as a companion piece to 2014’s “Songs of Innocence.” Much like the album, the new tour, dubbed “eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE,” will serve as a sequel to the band’s critically acclaimed 2015 “iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE” tour.
