U2 frontman Bono will take the stage at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium next month for "an evening of words, music and some mischief."
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has announced a 14-city book tour in support of his new memoir, "SURRENDER: 40 Songs, One Story," which will be released November 1.
He'll come to the Ryman Wednesday, November 9. Tickets are $57- $252 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via ryman.com
“I miss being on stage and the closeness of U2’s audience,” the 62-year-old said in a press release.
“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.”
Live Nation and Penguin Random House announced a 14-city book tour in support of SURRENDER: 40 Songs, One Story, the forthcoming memoir by Bono—artist, activist and U2 lead singer—which will be released worldwide on Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
The book tour, titled ‘Stories of Surrender’ and produced by Live Nation, is a limited run of theatre dates to mark the release of a memoir in which one of the world’s most iconic artists writes for the first time about his remarkable life and those he has shared it with. Bono will bring the stories of his life to life — live and in person— to 14 cities across North America and Europe.
This will be Bono's first solo appearance in Nashville. His band has performed in Music City three times prior: at Vanderbilt University's Underwood Auditorium in 1981, the school's football stadium in 2011, and Bridgestone Arena in 2018. They also headlined Bonnaroo in 2017.
