Irish rockers U2 have added a second Auckland date to their “360 degrees” world tour.
Tickets for the first concert at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on November 25 sold out in less than an hour on Friday. The second conert will be on November 26, and tickets will go on sale on Thursday.
Second dates were also announced for Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney and Perth.
The band will bring American rapper Jay-Z. It will be the first New Zealand stage appearance by the hip hop artist and partner of singer Beyonce Knowles.
Ticket prices start from $39.90, but a surcharge of almost $20 per transaction by an online outlet has upset many concert goers.
