U2 frontman Bono has announced that he will be launching a 14-city book tour to promote his forthcoming memoir, "SURRENDER: 40 Songs, One Story", which will be hitting stores on November 1st.
The Stories of Surrender Tour will be kicking off on November 2nd in New York City at the Beacon Theatre and will include several U.S. stops, along with dates in Bono's hometown of Dublin, London, Paris, Berlin, Glasgow and will conclude in Madrid on November 28th.
He had this to say, "I miss being on stage and the closeness of U2's audience. In these shows I've got some stories to sing, and some songs to tell...
"Plus I want to have some fun presenting my ME-moir, SURRENDER, which is really more of a WE-moir if I think of all the people who helped me get from there to here."
