KANSAS CITY (AP)- U2, the legendary Irish rock group, announced today that The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 has added seven additional North American stadium shows, including a stop at Arrowhead Stadium on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public on Monday, June 12, with Chiefs-specific presales beginning on Friday.

The show will mark the 50th concert or music festival in Arrowhead Stadium history and will be the 10th concert date for the stadium since 2011.

September’s show will be the group’s third visit to iconic Arrowhead Stadium, with their first visit being the ZOO TV Tour on Oct. 18, 1992, and most recently, the PopMart Tour hitting the Arrowhead stage on May 19, 1997.

“U2 is widely recognized as one of the best stadium shows worldwide,” Kansas City Chiefs and Arrowhead Events LLC President Mark Donovan said. “We are proud to be able to host one of the biggest music events of the year and welcome the return of U2 to Arrowhead for their third show, 20 years after their last visit.”

Ticket prices start at $35. An opening act for the North American tour dates will be announced at a later date.

All special Chiefs presales will take place on Friday.

The Jackson County resident presale will open at 11 a.m. on Friday while a presale for Kansas City Chiefs Season Ticket Members, corporate partners and Arrowhead Stadium suite members will start at noon on Friday.

The presale for Chiefs Kingdom Rewards members will begin at 1 p.m. on Friday.
