U2 bringing 2 shows to Toronto in July

U2 is going on tour next year and they’ll be bringing two shows to Toronto.

The band’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour will kick off in Vancouver at Rogers Arena on May 14 and 15.

Other stops will include San Jose, Phoenix, Los Angeles and then at Montreal’s Bell Centre June 12 and 13.

Chicago, Boston and New York are also on the list and the last Canadian dates will be at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre July 6 and 7.

U2 will also be heading to Europe and the United Kingdom between September and November.

Tickets for all the shows go on sale Monday. U2.com members get early access to the shows with tickets going on sale Thursday.

U2 recently released their 13th album Songs of Innocence for free to iTunes customers, resulting in downloads by 30-million fans, according to a release from Live Nation.

Next year’s tour will find U2 performing in indoor arenas for the first time in a decade.

“We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience,” Bono said in a release. “More to be revealed!”

On Monday rock legend Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay’s Chris Martin filled in for Bono during the band’s show to benefit World AIDS Day in Times Square.

Bono suffered multiple injuries to his face and arm and had to undergo a five-hour surgery after a bike accident in Central Park in November.
