(fcc) Due to extraordinary ongoing demand which has seen over one million ticket requests registered, Sphere Entertainment Co. and Live Nation today announced an additional 5 dates for U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere, a first-of-its-kind live music experience which will see the world's biggest rock band launch the world's most cutting-edge venue, Sphere at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere marks U2's first live shows in four years and Sphere at The Venetian in Las Vegas will be the only place fans can see the show.
The following dates have been announced:
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1

The long-awaited confirmation of dates comes after U2 dropped the ultimate sneak peek - to a mass global audience - with a Super Bowl commercial back in February which let fans know that the band will return to the stage later this year.
