U2 announces rescheduled dates for postponed 360 Tour

Apparently Bono's back is feeling better, as U2 on Tuesday morning announced the rescheduled dates for its postponed 360 Tour. The band was forced to scrap its two appearances at Angels Stadium after its lead singer injured his back while rehearsing for the tour. They will perform the make-up shows in Anaheim on June 17 and June 18 next year.

In a prepared statement released this morning on U2.com, manager Paul McGuinness said:

“We’re delighted the dates are rescheduled and in all the same venues we originally planned to play. It hasn't been easy to accomplish this and I'd like to thank the managers of the many venues and sports teams across North America and Live Nation Global Touring for their help and cooperation in making this complex new plan possible. Above all we want to thank the U2 fans for bearing with us. They’re the best and the band wants to get back to where they belong, surrounded by their audience.”

Thanks for the update! It will be great to see U2 perform again next year. I hope the band (and audience) are better than at the Oct. 25 show at the Rose Bowl in 2009.

If somebody is just going to play with their iPhone all night, I wish they would stay home and let true fans enjoy the show. But I think many people in L.A. are casual fans in terms of music and sports.
