U2 performed in 2011 at Spartan Stadium and wowed fans with “The Claw.” An aquarium recently bought one of the claw-like stage setups used on tour.

This weekend may be your best chance this year to see one of the world’s most celebrated bands.

Acclaimed Irish rock four-piece U2 returns to the Midwest this Saturday, playing a one-night only show at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha as part of the “Experience + Innocence” world tour.

And tickets are still for sale.

Admission to the show, per Ticketmaster, starts at $41 before fees, with the highest-priced standard ticket selling for $325. Standing room only floor tickets cost $76 before fees.

Saturday’s tour stop is the closest announced gig from U2 for central Iowans, with the band also scheduled to appear in Chicago next week. The Omaha World-Herald reports the show is a “departure” for the tour “dominated by major cities” such as New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

The tour opened earlier this month in Tulsa, with the New York Times review calling it “rock that arrives with a sense of mission.”  

“For decades, the band has treated arenas and stadiums as havens of community through shared songs,” the review reads. “This time, the singalongs are mixed with warnings and pleas to save an endangered American dream.”

U2, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group, released its latest record, “Songs of Experience” in December. Find more information on the show at centurylinkcenteromaha.com.
