U2 Announce 2010 European Tour

More dates expected in Europe and worldwide

U2 has announced the first set of dates in 2010 for the U2 360 tour, and they include a couple countries the band has never played before. Here's the list of announced dates from U2.com, but we don't believe this is the whole European Tour; for starters, the text on U2.com mentions Brussels, but it's not on the actual list, and two, there continue to be strong rumors of a show in Israel -- but these are still just rumors. It's also odd that there are no UK or Irish shows. Here's what U2 did announce:

August 10, 2010 - Commerzbank Arena, Frankfurt, Germany
August 12, 2010 - AWD Stadium, Hannover, Germany
August 15, 2010 - Stadium, Horsens, Denmark
August 20, 2010 - Olympic Stadium, Helsinki, Finland
August 25, 2010 - Luzhniki, Moscow, Russia
August 30, 2010 - Ernst Happel Stadium, Vienna, Austria
September 3, 2010 - Olympic Stadium, Athens, Greece
September 6, 2010 - Ataturk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul, Turkey
September 15, 2010 - Olympic Stadium, Munich, Germany
September 18, 2010 - Stade De France, Paris, France
September, 2010 - Olympic Stadium, Seville, Spain
October 2, 2010 - Stadium, Coimbra, Portugal

The dates in Moscow and Istanbul will mark the first time U2 has played concerts in Russia and Turkey, respectively. The Athens show will be their second in Greece. Helsinki will only be their third show in Finland.

Ticket sales for some of these dates start as soon as next week, so get yer wallet out. We also anticipate 2010 dates to be announced in North America,
South America, and Australia/New Zealand, if not others. (Live Nation seems hellbent on making this the highest-grossing tour of all-time.)

U2.com has also announced a new subscriber package for 2010 and it includes ticket presale opportunities for members, plus a "unique remix album." Visit U2.com for more details about that.
