Mumbai: Iconic Irish rock band, U2 will be seen performing at the DY Patil sports stadium in Navi Mumbai today.
The event will also be the last gig of the extremely successful The Joshua Tree Tour, by the band, celebrating its 32-year-old iconic album by the same title.
On Thursday evening, band members — Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr — landed at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, about the same time as Partha Bhattacharya from Kolkata.
Since October 1, tickets have been on sale for various sections of the stadium. To give the audience the memory of a lifetime, the band will use, what is considered to be the largest (200 ft x 45 ft) high-resolution (8k) LED screen used at a live concert.
