NEW YORK, N.Y. - U2 says it will hit the stage in Vancouver next May to open a 19-city tour, playing indoor arenas after a decade of larger outdoor shows.

Promoter Live Nation announced the rock band's "iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE" tour on Wednesday. Tickets go on sale on Monday. The tour swings through North America next summer before heading to Europe in September 2015.

U2 is obviously hoping for a complete recovery by lead singer Bono, who was hurt in a bicycle accident in New York City last month. During a surprise gig in New York's Times Square this week, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin filled in for the vocalist.

The band will play two nights in each city, with four dates in New York, Los Angeles and London.
