Hours after broadcasting their 360° Tour stop at California's Rose Bowl to the entire world via a YouTube live stream, U2 announced plans to bring "The Biggest Rock Show Ever" back to North America in 2010. Last night's Rose Bowl gig was the band's final concert in the states on this leg of the 360° Tour, but YouTube has promised to rebroadcast the full show and the band has confirmed they'll return with their innovative stage dubbed "the Spaceship" in June.
Twelve concerts have been announced for the band's next North American trek, including a performance at Chicago's Soldier Field — where the band launched its U.S. leg earlier this year — and a July 19th stop at New York's New Meadowlands Stadium.
U2.com subscribers will get first crack at tickets starting tomorrow, October 27th, when the presale begins for the Oakland, Toronto and Edmonton shows.
