U2 will be holding a concert in the Philippines for the first time this 2019!
The Irish rock band will perform on December 11, 2019, at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
This is part of the band’s ongoing Joshua Tree World Tour.
U2 consists of lead vocalist Bono (real name: Paul David Hewson), David Howell “The Edge” Evans on lead guitar, Adam Clayton on bass guitar, and Larry Mullen Jr. on drums and percussion.
The 43-year-old rock band used Twitter to announce: "U2's first ever show in the Philippines."
A hand-written note from Bono goes: "Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry coming to rock you hard & soft... loud & vivid, black & white & colour Dec 11."
Bono was also quoted as saying in the official website of U2: "Manila is a first and that has everyone on their toes. This has to be one of the great ones."
Formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1976, U2 has received a total of 22 Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
The band released its now iconic album The Joshua Tree in 1987. It is known for its hit songs "With or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and "Where the Streets Have No Name."
