U2 are bringing the Elevation Tour 2001 back for another go-around.
"We want people to hear other songs on the record," lead singer Bono said after the group won the Video Vanguard Award at last week's MTV Video Music Awards. "We're not going away until you listen to them."
While the tour's 15 stops include some cities and venues it hit in the spring and summer, the group will also venture into some new markets, Bono said. This leg of the tour kicks off October 10 in South Bend, Indiana.
"It's a lap of honor, really, in terms of we're coming back to New York City playing Madison Square Garden," he said. "But we're also going to some places we've not been before. We want to keep the album alive." U2 wrapped up the first 49-date North American tour June 22 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, before heading across the Atlantic for a series of European dates.
Tickets for seven of the shows will go on sale September 15, with the rest to follow in the next two weeks.
