The band had previously discussed the problems they were experiencing in attempting to secure Irish dates, as no venue could accommodate the stage for their ‘Innocence and Experience’ tour set.

However the band will have the stage re-designed and will play Irish dates at the end of November, according to the Irish Times.

The paper reports that an announcement will be made on Wednesday, confirming the exact dates and venue for the gigs.

Dublin's 3Arena is available from November 25th to 29th, when they are reportedly set to play the capital.

The band's European tour kicked off in the Italian city of Turin on Friday night and is scheduled to end in Paris on November 15.
