U2 to Play Invite-Only Concert at the Apollo with SiriusXM

U2  are taking a break from their massive eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE stadium tour for a more intimate setting: a private performance at Harlem’s Apollo Theater. The concert, hosted in conjunction with SiriusXM, will be held on June 11.

The last time the Irish rockers played a concert venue of the Apollo’s size in New York City was at the Irving Plaza in 2000. Since then, they have performed almost 500 arena shows for the Elevation Tour, the Vertigo Tour, the U2 360° Tour, the Innocence + Experience Tour and the Joshua Tree Tour 2017. (If you multiply all 500 of those shows by the average stadium capacity of 50,000 people, you get, well, a whole lot of tickets sold, that’s for sure.)

Over the course of their 42-year-long career, U2 have never performed at the Apollo. Frontman (and sunglasses icon) Bono expressed his excitement about playing at the historic venue in a statement, saying, “The Apollo Theater is the heart of New York’s musical soul, and to finally be playing our songs on the same stage where James Brown begged ‘Please, please, please’ is not only a bucket-list moment, it’s an incredible honor.” The theater opened its doors in 1934.

Immediately following the performance, the concert will be streamed for SiriusXM subscribers via satellite, the SiriusXM app and siriusxm.com. SiriusXM subscribers should keep an eye out for an invitation sent by e-mail to win tickets to U2’s private performance.
