“Mumbai will be the perfect city to end the JT 2019 tour,” says drummer Larry Mullen.

“We are looking forward to bringing a dash of Dublin to Mumbai,” adds Adam Clayton, the band’s bassist. “India is famous for its rich culture of art, music, movies, theatre, literature, food and so much more. There is a lot of excitement in the U2 camp.”
