U2 WILL BE playing three concerts in Dublin’s 3Arena this Christmas.

Bono revealed the plans to the late broadcaster Tony Fenton, who recorded an extensive interview with the U2 frontman before his death in March.

Speaking about the Christmas gigs, Bono said the band wants to try something new:

We decided, let’s do something we’re not going to do anywhere else in the world. Let’s create the most intimate show we’ve ever done. Let’s focus, try evrything else out. It’ll be be risky, but it’s gonna be interesting.

The band’s Innocence + Experience World Tour is set to kick off on May 14 in Vancouver.

Bono is still recovering from a serious bike accident in November 2014, in which he broke his arm in six places. He recently told the New York Times that the fingers on his left hand are numb, meaning he can’t play guitar.

Tony Fenton’s full interview with Bono will be broadcast on Today FM this Bank Holiday Monday at 3pm.
