U2 reportedly to headline Bonnaroo in 2017

Bonnaroo isn’t expected to drop their lineup until a month from now, but the main headliner for 2017 may have just been revealed. U2, the Irish rock supergroup fronted by Bono, will reportedly headline the Tennessee festival in June of next year.

According to Billboard, the band will perform a string of stadium dates in the spring, followed by a summer appearance at Bonnaroo. If this is the case, the show would mark U2’s first-ever North American festival appearance.

Prior to the announcement, U2 shared a video on Christmas, hinting at “big plans” for 2016, including the release of their new album Songs of Experience (the follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Innocence) and an anniversary tour for their seminal album, The Joshua Tree.

Check out U2’s announcement below, and be on the lookout for Bonnaroo’s official lineup which is expected to drop next month.
