The rumors were true: U2 has extended The Joshua Tree 2017 tour with a 4th night in São Paulo, Brazil on Oct. 25. The band’s announcement on U2.com states Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be the support act.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, July 27th and fans are reminded the best way to purchase is through the internet beginning at 12:01 AM July 27th at www.ticketsforfun.com.br. Beginning at 10:00am, a limited number of tickets will be available at the official box office and authorized outlets. Respecting standard procedures, fans will receive a number according to their order of arrival in line.
There will be a 6 ticket limit per person for all transactions. Following a U2.com subscriber presale for the first three São Paulo shows, tickets for the fourth and final São Paulo concert will be open to all Brazilian fans from 10.00am on 27th July.
Another announcement came through the band's Instagram account: “We are thrilled to announce a 4th show in São Paulo. It will be a very special party with the Brazilian fans to celebrate the end of a great tour. See you there!”
Director Hamish Hamilton was spotted at the band’s Croke Park show in Dublin this weekend. São Paulo is the only city to have four shows on this tour, which may indicate the band’s chosen it as the filming location for a possible DVD.
