U2 have shared details of The Virtual Road.

The four-part concert series will see the legendary Irish rockers posting four notable performances to their official YouTube channel, starting with their 2001 gig U2 Go Home: Live From Slane Castle.

It will be the first time the other three shows — U2: Live At Red Rocks in 1983, Popmart: Live From Mexico City in 1997 and iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE: Live in Paris in 2015 — have been made available digitally, with each gig streaming online with remastered audio and enhanced visuals for 48 hours after the broadcast.

Each concert will be opened by a livestream performance, with Dermot Kennedy opening the first show on St. Patrick's Day (March 17), Fontaines D.C. playing March 25, Carla Morrison on April 1, and Feu! Chatterton on April 10. U2 said:

"Every show is memorable for us but these four particularly so… It's exciting to be on the road again… Embracing all the wonder of the virtual road… And especially exciting to be joined by such a brilliant line up of fellow travellers in Dermot Kennedy, Fontaines D.C., Carla Morrison and Feu! Chatterton."

U2 released their most recent album and 14th overall, 'Songs Of Experience', in 2017.
