U2 is set to reunite! This time, it’s for an invite-only concert on June 11 at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. The concert will be hosted and broadcast by SiriusXM. The last time U2 played in New York was way back in 2000 at Irving Plaza.

The band confirmed that this concert will be much more intimate than the Experience + Innocence world tour that they’re currently on. It will also include an augmented reality section. On the reported set list are tracks from Songs of Experience as well as a few classic songs.

According to Bono, there’s a “unique history” between his band and New York City. He cited influences from New York such as the Ramones, Billie Holliday, and Lou Reed as inspiring many of the songs that the band produced over the years. In addition, he noted that their earliest shows in New York helped the group develop into the iconic band that they are now. Bono said, “to finally be playing our songs on the same stage where James Brown begged ‘Please Please Please’ is… an incredible honor.”

All subscribers of SiriusXM will have the chance to win tickets to see U2’s show at the Apollo Theater. All of the winners will be notified via email. Those who have subscribed since April 25 will have the chance to win tickets to fly to New York to watch the show live.

Aside from U2’s upcoming concert, the satellite radio giant has also hosted a few other concerts in the past which were also held at Apollo Theater. These include Paul McCartney, Metallica, James Taylor, Guns N’ Roses, and Bruce Springsteen.

Following their gig at Apollo Theater, U2 will resume their tour in North America, which will wrap up in Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun on July 3. Stay tuned to Music Mix Daily for more U2 news!
