U2 Sets Attendance Records In Person And On Net

U2 set records last night as the legendary rock band played to at least 96,000 people at THE ROSE BOWL in PASADENA -- but millions more watched it live on YOUTUBE, reports CNET -- and some said the event was the largest live-streamed event of all time.
When it wraps up this week, the U2 360 Tour will have played to over 3 million fans in just 44 cities. Record-shattering sales included THE ROSE BOWL, as well as setting the all-time record at NEW YORK's GIANT STADIUM, where the audience surpassed that of the Pope.
Having performed in a limited number of NORTH AMERICAN cities in 2009, U2 360 is set to touch down in a new set of stadiums next summer, including stops in ANAHEIM; DENVER; OAKLAND; SEATTLE; EDMONTON; EAST LANSING; MIAMI; PHILADELPHIA and MONTREAL. U2 360 will also return for one night only in TORONTO and CHICAGO before finishing the NORTH AMERICAN leg in NEW YORK at the NEW MEADOWLANDS STADIUM.
