The last time U2 went on tour it broke records. Called the 360° Tour, it spanned two years from 2009 to 2011 and made over $770 million – the highest grossing tour of all time. Ever. This included pre-recorded messages at the start of each show from pretty-big-deals like the International Space Station and Desmond Tutu, to name a couple. 72 million tickets were sold all in all.

Their next tour, the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour, set for 2015, doesn't look as though it'll be spanning more than a year. It is still pretty big though, running from May to November next year, 44 dates stopping off in the UK (with a string of shows at The O2), Europe, Canada and the US, where the Madison Square Gardens shows in New York are the crowning glory of the tour. However, they might well be embarking on a tour that in the wake of winning a Grammy Award, having been nominated a couple of days ago for Best Rock Album in light of their release earlier this year Songs Of Innocence, qualified only by a last minute release of the album on vinyl format.

You can grab tickets for that here (UK) or here (US).
