U2 playing The Apollo Theatre in June

u2

In the midst of their Experience + Innocence arena tour, U2 will stop in NYC to play Harlem’s historic Apollo Theatre on June 11. Says Bono:

New York City and the U2 band have a unique history. From the songs of Lou Reed, Billie Holiday and the Ramones that taught us how to listen, to the New Yorkers at our earliest U.S. shows who taught us how to play, the souls of New York and U2 have always been intertwined. The Apollo Theater is the heart of New York’s musical soul, and to finally be playing our songs on the same stage where James Brown begged ‘Please, please, please’ is not only a bucket-list moment, it’s an incredible honor.

It’s the first time they’ve ever played the Apollo — odds on them playing “Angel of Harlem”? — and it’s an invite-only show for SiriusXM subscribers. The concert will air right after their performance on SiriusXM channel 30 (and via their app).

The Apollo show falls in-between U2’s show at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum and dates at Madison Square Garden and NJ’s Prudential Center (tickets).
