TICKETS FOR THE most widely anticipated concert of the year, U2 in Croke Park, go on sale today.

The band announced last week it will play Croke Park on 22 July. Today’s general sale tickets follow last Wednesday’s pre-sale for website subscribers.

The Dublin gig forms part of a North American and Europe tour to celebrate the release of their 1987 album The Joshua Tree  - which saw the Dublin band elevated to superstar status, 11 years after their formation.

But will there be another date? Speculation has risen about a possible second gig given that the band has both the day before and day after free on the European leg of their tour.

An agreement with the Croke Park area residents allows the GAA to stage three concerts a year at the stadium. With Coldplay’s July gig sold out, that leaves one more date.

As of now, sources say the most likely third concert would be Ed Sheeran, who is set to tour Europe this summer. He previously sold the venue out.
