U2 taps Interpol, Kravitz, The Fray as 2010 tour openers

on February 20, 2010, 3:38pm

In addition to the giant claw and the massive red, U2‘s still ongoing 360 world tour will also likely be remembered for its heavyweight openers. This trend will continue when Bono and co. embark on the second leg of the 360 tour next June, as the legendary band has chosen to followup leg #1 openers Muse, the Black Eyed Peas, and Snow Patrol with the likes of Interpol, Lenny Kravtiz, and The Fray.

As Slicing Up Eyeballs points out, Kravitz will open the band’s initial three dates in the west coast, The Fray will handle then handle the slot for Oakland, Seattle, and Edmonton, and Interpol, who will likely be supporting a new album by then, will hit the road with U2 for six dates. An opener has not yet been announced for the final three nights in Montreal and New York City. David Byrne would be fun.

We should also note that U2 has been rumored to be playing this year’s Ottawa Bluesfest, set to take place from July 7-18 at LeBreton Flats Park. Maybe the Imagine Music & Arts Festival as well?
