U2’s How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is about to detonate on the road. In support of the new album, which hits stores on Nov. 23, the Irish quartet will launch a world tour, beginning March 1 in Florida, Billboard reports. They’ll play 35 stadium shows in North America, followed by 30 dates in Europe, another 35 shows in North America, and wind down in Japan and Australia. The band is rumored to be considering such acts as Snow Patrol and Scissor Sisters for opening acts. U2 manager Paul McGuinness says no decision has been made, but he tells Billboard, ”We love Snow Patrol. Their producer, Jacknife Lee, also worked on U2’s album and they’re Irish. There’s a close connection.”
