Ahead of the planned December 1 release of their 14th studio album Songs of Experience, U2 has announced it will kick off its Experience + Innocence Tour on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at the BOK Center in Tulsa – one of only 15 North American tour dates.
The May 2 concert in Tulsa will be U2’s first live performance in that city. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 am Monday, November 20 and will be sold exclusively through Ticketmaster Verified Fan.

The concert is the 4th show announced for BOK Center’s “10 for 10” concert series in 2018, a planned celebration that will feature 10 blockbuster artists commemorating the arena’s t10th anniversary.
Songs of Experience will be released December 1 by Interscope Records in the U.S. and via Universal Canada on CD, vinyl, digital download, and across streaming platforms.
Just as Songs of Experience serves as a companion piece to 2014’s Songs of Innocence, the Experience + Innocence Tour will serve as a sequel to 2015’s Innocence + Experience Tour, which saw “U2 reinvent the arena show” (Rolling Stone) and was named the No. 1 concert of 2015 by The New York Times. [See full tour schedule below].

All three songs are available now to stream across all platforms. Fans who pre-order the deluxe version of the album will also receive the Kygo remix of “You’re The Best Thing About Me.”
