U2 COULD BE set to play Irish shows at the end of November, it is being reported.

Speaking to The Irish Times, lead singer Bono confirmed that the band’s ‘Innocence and Experience’ tour will be coming to Ireland after a performance in Turin on Saturday night.

The exact location and dates for the shows are expected to be announced later this week.

It is reported that the tour has been more difficult to bring to Ireland as the stage configuration is not suitable for any stadium in the country.

Last night Bono appeared in Milan alongside Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney, to announce that Ireland would be pledging €60 million to the US World Food Programme over the next three years.

This commitment makes Ireland one of the largest per capita donors to the World Food Programme.

Also appearing at the event was Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Ertharin Cousin, the executive director of the World Food Programme.
