Next year’s Best of Nashville needs a new category: Best Worst-Kept Secret EVER (and we’ve got the first nomination). It’s with no shock but plenty of awe that we report today’s big news – U2 is definitely coming to town in 2011, and their first Nashville show since 1981 (yes, it’s been 29 years) will be at Vanderbilt Stadium on July 2 with opener Florence And The Machine. The show goes on sale to the public this Friday, October 29 at 10am, so get those credit cards ready! Ticket prices will be $30, $55, $95 & $250, and will be available at, all Ticketmaster locations or the Vanderbilt Sarratt box office.

    Wow, U2 in Nashville!?!? Amazing! Is this still part of the 360° tour? I saw opening weekend in Chicago which was such a good show I’d go see it again.

    Awesome but Vanderbilt Stadium? That will sell out in about 3 seconds.

    It’s one of the smallest (if not the smallest) venues they’re playing on this tour. It’ll be interesting trying to get tickets!

    Hey, my name is Chris. I portray The Edge in a U2 tribute band named UZoo based here in Nashville:

    We are really excited U2 is coming to Nashville and we’re trying to get a big preshow event/party organized in Nashville for July 1 – the night before U2 hits the stage. UZoo will play your favorite U2 songs at the event.
