It looks likely to be the start of a world tour (likely next year, including Mullen), Variety notes, celebrating the anniversary of “Achtung Baby,” similar to the band’s blockbuster tours around the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album The Joshua Tree.
Those tours, which took place in 2017 and 2019 (interspersed with the band’s Experience + Innocence tours in 2015 and 2018), have been seen by more than 3.2 million people and grossed nearly $400 million, Variety adds.
Recorded in Berlin and released in November of 1991, “Achtung Baby” and the subsequent Zooropa album, titled “Variety,” effectively rebooted U2’s career, introducing new sounds, influences, and songwriting styles and distancing them from anthems. rock style that made them one of the biggest bands in the world in the 80’s.
Their audience stayed with them every step of the way: the ensuing “Zoo TV” tour ran for almost two years and was watched by more than 5 million people.
