Bell X1 and The Script have both got the Croker call.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 09 Apr 2009

U2’s third Croke Park show is now officially sold-out, bringing the number of tickets their U2 360 tour has shifted worldwide to 2.5 million.

They’ve also added some extra special guests, which means in addition to Bono and the boys you’ll get:

July 24th – Glasvegas & Damien Dempsey

July 25th – Kaiser Chiefs & Republic Of Loose

July 27th – Bell X1 and The Script

Elsewhere, sales in Gothenburg and Amsterdam were so brisk that second performances were added and sold-out within hours of them going on sale. In Zagreb two sold-out stadium shows have broken all previous Croatian sales records. U2’s tour opener in Barcelona sold-out in 54 minutes becoming the fastest ever sold-out show in the history of pop music in Spain with a second show subsequently added.

In North America, the response to the tour has also been overwhelming as records continue to shatter as shows are put on sale. In Los Angeles U2’s Rose Bowl performance sold 90,000 tickets in one day, making it the fastest selling and the largest attended concert to play the Rose Bowl in history.
