U2 coming to Arrowhead Stadium in September

The show will mark the 50th concert or music festival in Arrowhead Stadium history and will be the 10th concert date for the stadium since 2011.

“U2 is widely recognized as one of the best stadium shows worldwide,” Kansas City Chiefs and Arrowhead Events LLC President Mark Donovan said. “We are proud to be able to host one of the biggest music events of the year and welcome the return of U2 to Arrowhead for their third show, 20 years after their last visit.”
