TICKET AGENCY Book My Show (BMS) has moved into promoting major international artistes, with the final concert of U2’s The Joshua Tree Tour.

Co-promoted with Live Nation Global Touring president Arthur Fogel, the show will be at Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium (cap. 55,000) on 15 December.

“The band has been keen to come and perform in India for many years, but were looking for the right partner who would help them navigate the intricacies of this market, in terms of infrastructure as well as ensure a seamless global experience in India,” a BMS spokesperson tells Audience.

“The fact that India will be a celebrated part of U2’s itinerary speaks volumes about the revolution of the entertainment ecosystem in the country. Bringing them to India is a truly defining moment, not just for the music landscape in the country but also puts India on the global map of entertainment in terms of its ability to be able to host a concert of this scale.”

Tickets range from 3,750 to 25,000 rupees ($52-348), with general admission starting at around 6,000 rupees ($83).

Launched in 2007 and owned by Big Tree Entertainment, BMS has ticketing outlets in more than 650 towns and cities nationwide.

Among other dates on the U2 tour are Australia’s Optus Stadium (60,000) in Perth, Japan’s Saitama Super Arena (37,000) in Tokyo and the Philippine Arena (55,000) in Bulacan, 30 kms north of The Phillippes’ capital Manila.
