"If you're writing songs, there are two things that you just don't want to write about — politics and religion. We write about both. No wonder we get into trouble." — Bono


U2 Concerts in Athletic Park


U2 has performed 1 times in Athletic Park. Those performances included   unique songs and an overall total of 21 songs.

Athletic Park is located in Wellington,  New Zealand

Athletic Park was a well-known ground used mostly for rugby matches in Wellington, New Zealand, but has now been demolished and was replaced with a retirement village. In 1999 the Athletic Park was closed and replaced by the Westpac Stadium, referred to by some as "The Cake Tin" which is situated closer to the city centre. As a music venue, besides U2, Athletic Park also played host to other non-sports events, including a visit by Pope John Paul II and various rock concerts. In 1983, David Bowie and Dire Straits performed at Athletic Park, with another performance by Dire Straits in 1986. Michael Jackson planned to perform a concert on 2 December 1987 during his Bad World Tour, but the performance was cancelled.
