It is somewhere between difficult and impossible to profile what is arguably the single greatest rock band of the past 40 years in 400 words. The first U2 concert tickets were sold in 1979, when they embarked on a total of 11 shows that served to introduce themselves to the Irish crowd. 1,312 live performances and 35 years later, they have evolved into one of the most talented, important and acclaimed groups in the history of rock music.
The specific numbers differ vary based on who you ask, but experts have estimated that the prestigious band has sold over 50 million U2 Tickets since they began touring. September 25, 1976 is the exact day that U2 was formed after four ambitious and talented youths finished their day at Mount Temple Comprehensive School in Dublin. The group went through several styles, band members and names before settling upon their genius moniker in the early days of 1978. On St. Patrick's Day of the same year, they won a talent show, a nice stack of cash and studio time that allowed them to put together a professional demo tape.
It would still be a handful of years until they sold U2 Tickets to anxious fans at concert dates throughout Europe, but they finally had the pieces in place to build on one of the most solid rock band foundations ever created. 13 studio albums have led to 14 concert tours, and when the iNNocence + eXperience Tour kicks off in early summer of next year, it will be the 15th time that fans have been given the opportunity to get their hands on Tickets for U2 concerts.
Front man Bono continues to be one of the most well-recognized figures in all of entertainment. It is a little known fact that his mother died while mourning at his father's funeral, a certainly traumatic moment in his life that has perhaps propelled him to become one of the most important artists and activists in the history of humankind. He stops at nothing in order to make everyone who purchases cheap U2 Tickets happy and entertained from the moment they take the stage until the moment their encore is finished. He has performed alongside some of the most well recognized American musicians, and has got to personally know the last three presidents of the United States while simultaneously using his fame and influence to better a number of causes in Africa. In short, the world’s top band is fronted by a true global hero.
