Credit: Paolo PellegrinThe U.S. leg of U2's iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour is almost completely sold out, but if you're a college student, you still have a chance to get a ticket.  The band has partnered with education company Chegg to give away tickets to their massive tour to any currently enrolled student -- 18 or older -- at an accredited U.S. college.

At each of U2's 28 U.S. dates -- including stops in San Jose, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston and New York City -- 10 students and their guests will win tickets.  To enter, visit Music.Chegg.com/U2.  The contest will be open through May 15.

"As U2 kicks off their 2015 tour next month, they are looking forward to working with Chegg, allowing them to engage with their fans new and old at colleges across the country," says U2's manager Guy Oseary in a statement.  "Chegg's enormous reach to college students gives U2 the opportunity to go back to their roots and have some fun with fans."

The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour will begin May 14 in Vancouver, Canada, before the U.S. dates start on May 18 in San Jose, California.  U2's tour through North America will conclude with an eight-night stand at New York City's Madison Square Garden from July 18-31.  U2 will then move on to Europe in September.
