Willie Williams Discusses the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour

Probably easier to post it here now that the tour subforum was moved farther down.

Thanks for that , great updates. Seems like the end of year tour could very well happen. Hopefully it does, wouldn’t want them to have to much time off

Joshua tree release first quarter , E & I release 2nd quarter according to that then. Looking forward to it

So this is going to be Lovetown 30, right? I mean, 2019 is the 30th anniversary, that U2songs article specifically says the proposed late 2019 tour won't be an extension of E+I and that a new stage is being designed, the tour is only going to be for Australasia and southeastern Asia, much like the first leg of Lovetown. It makes too much sense for it not to be Lovetown 30.

Thank you prb15 & U2girl. Don't always have to check all the threads I'd want to in a visit.

Good luck to everyone in Australia & New Zealand for next year!

Definitely looking forward to the JT30 & E&I DVDs!

Rattle And Hum is, in fact, U2's biggest selling album here in Australia (8xP)

They’re not going to ignore the two new albums they’ve released since their last time there in favor of resurrecting a tour for an album they haven’t even re-released, but keep dreaming.

If you get a couple JT deep cuts in the second half of the show you’ll be lucky.

The article specifically said it would not be a continuation of E+I. Seems like if they were going to keep push SOI/SOE, then it would be a continuation of E+I.

I wouldn't count it out.

They'll do a nod to Lovetown with a mid-show acoustic set of Angel of Harlem and Desire, and a surprise Love Rescue Me at one (1) Brisbane show.

Hawkmoon 269 will be soundchecked every night complete with slide solo but not played until their Henry Kissinger Memorial Gig in Cambodia.

This is surely going to be a highlights reel of the last four years. Innocence through the Joshua Tree to Experience.

Do you have dyslexia or something?

Maybe they don't want to haul that giant screen over there, who knows?

It's going to be a mix, obviously. But I'd find it very, very hard to believe that those shows aren't going to have at least 10 tracks from the last two albums.

Theoretically they could do a suite of recent songs, have an intermission, and then play JT straight through. But I don't think that would flow too well.

This is a song, a song for Goldman.
