Remember when everyone was upset with U2 for dumping its new CD on 500 million iTunes users, whether anyone wanted to hear it or not? Well, all is forgiven and everyone’s back on the Bono bandwagon. Live Nation announced Tuesday that due to “overwhelming fan demand,” additional U2 shows have been added in select cities, including Boston. The band’s previously announced shows at TD Garden, July 10 and 11, promptly sold out, so Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr., and Adam Clayton will be back at it July 14 and 15. Tickets go on sale Dec. 15. After some iTunes customers complained about receiving, unsolicited, the band’s new CD, “Songs of Innocence,” Bono apologized, attributing the marketing stunt to a “drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn’t be heard.”
