U2 launching 19-city tour in May

U2 is planning an arena tour for next year with --hopefully-- all four members.

The band says it kick off the tour in Vancouver next May. The 19-city tour will consist of indoor arenas instead of the larger outdoor shows the band typically plays.

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.

The band's most recent -- and arguably most controversial -- album, "Songs of Innocence," was released in September.
