ALERT: U2 changes date of Giants show

U2 will perform on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford instead of the previously announced Friday, Sept. 25, date for their 360 Tour.

The group will still play its originally scheduled Thursday, Sept. 24, show.

The date change was caused by the rescheduled Jets NFL game on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 4:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. that day out of respect for the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. The original game time provided enough time for the U2 to take down its staging.

Arthur Fogel Live Nation Tour promoter said "We have tried everything we could to work the production logistics to be able to get out of the stadium for the earlier game. But its just not possible."

Tickets for the Sept. 25 show will honored on Sept. 23. Refunds will be available through the point of purchase.
