The unforgettable U2360º tour of the Irish band U2, was first in many segments, broke records and undoubtedly showed the audiovisual world that creativity in combination with technology has no limits.

  • 110 shows around the world, 71 million fans in 30 countries of the 5 continents.

The tour came to a close in Moncton, Canada and before the closing night Ray Waddell of Billboard summed it all up: With tonight's final show, the U2360° tour will become the largest tour ever reported.
