The Irish band will tour Australia in December, as part of its global U2360 degrees tour that will ultimately play to four million people around the world.
Australian fans have been promised their best ever look at the band, thanks to a new, in-the-round stage, offering views from every angle and complete with rotating bridges and a towering video system.
"U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, and this extraordinary production makes that happen in stadiums," U2's manager Paul McGuinness said.
"It was important to the band that we were able to bring the whole 360 degrees production to Australia and New Zealand so fans could experience the latest of U2's legendary productions."
Tickets for the Australian shows go on sale on September 3 with promoters saying prices will start at just $40.
"To have an in-the-round transportable stadium production is something that the touring industry has been trying to figure out for some time," U2 tour producer and promoter Arthur Fogel, of Live Nation Global Touring, said.
"The extra capacity U2360 degrees gives us means that there are a large number, several thousand in fact, of low-priced tickets at every show."
U2 will play at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium on December 1, at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on December 8, at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on December 13 and at Perth's Subiaco Oval on December 18.
Before heading to Australia, the band will play at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on November 25.
