U2’s Bono is bringing his book tour to Manchester: when Stories of Surrender is coming to 02 Apollo and how to get tickets

Bono will come to Manchester as part of a European tour

U2 lead singer and activist Bono has announced a 14-city book tour in support of his upcoming memoir- with one of the shows taking place in Manchester.

The book tour 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.

Talking about going back on stage for the book tour, Bono said: “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.”

Here’s all you need to know about the show, including how you can get tickets and also where else in the UK Bono will be visiting.
