Bono announces book tour

By | Published on Tuesday 4 October 2022


Bono is heading out on tour. A book tour. He’s going to go around the place flogging his new memoir ‘Surrender’. And why not?

“I miss being on stage and the closeness of U2’s audience”, he says. “In these shows I’ve got some stories to sing, and some songs to tell… Plus I want to have some fun presenting my ME-moir, ‘Surrender’, which is really more of a WE-moir if I think of all the people who helped me get from there to here”.

Hopefully his chatter during the book tour shows will be at least slightly better than that bit of waffle. Anyway, every ticket you buy for the tour will also come with a copy of the book, which is probably more copies than most households need. Good news for charity shops though. Those tickets go on sale on Friday.

The UK and Ireland leg of the tour will run as follows:

16 Nov: London, The Palladium
17 Nov: Glasgow, Armadillo
19 Nov: Manchester, Apollo
21 Nov: Dublin, 3Olympia Theatre
