Today both casinos in Connecticut will be reopening to the public for the first time since mid March. Only portions of both casinos will be open while others areas will remain closed for the time being.
One area of Mohegan Sun that will remain closed is the 10,000 seat arena. At the moment all upcoming concerts and sporting events at Mohegan Sun are either cancelled or being rescheduled. So while we wait for live shows to happen again, we can look back at some of the great concerts that came to Mohegan Sun Arena over the years….like U2 in 2018!
Experience + Innocence Tour
Tuesday July 3, 2018
Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville, Connecticut
About The Tour:
U2 hit the road in 2018 in support of its fourteenth studio album, Songs of Experience. The Experience + Innocence Tour was comprised of two legs and 60 concerts that made stops in North America in the summer and Europe in the fall. All tickets sold on the tour included a copy of Songs of Experience.
The stage set up for the Experience + Innocence Tour was similar to 2015’s Innocence + Experience Tour, with some tweaks. The basic set up included a rectangular main stage with a smaller circular stage at the end with a connecting walkway and a large video screen.
The tour kicked off at The BOK Center in Tulsa on May 2, 2018. U2 would continue to tour the United States and Canada in months of May and June before wrapping up the North American portion of the tour in early July at Madison Square Garden and Mohegan Sun Arena.
