Hot tickets: U2, Jeff Tweedy, America

By Alex Baldinger

Few bands can fill stadiums these days, and as the Baltimore Sun recently reported, concert promoters are finding it more lucrative to book top acts at arena shows. Of course, U2 is not most bands, and with lead singer/humanitarian/icon Bono back to full health, the band is hitting the road and only stopping at venues that push their capacity limit past the 20,000 mark. On June 22, the stadium tour will stop in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly for these shows at the 9:30 Club: • G Love and Special Sauce, Dec. 13 ($50-$500). • Ghostland Observatory, Dec. 18 ($27.50). • Justin Townes Earle and Jessica Lea Mayfield, Dec. 19 ($20).
