"Let Me In The Sound Tour" strikes me as possibly being too long a name. I mean, look at the tour names since U2 stopped just calling them "[Latest Album] Tour": Lovetown, ZooTV, Popmart, Elevation, Vertigo.

I would be VERY surprised if they'll only play Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays...you know, this is their job and they have fans all over the world waiting for them to play, because that's the main reason we actually buy all their albums and so on. Furthermore They've said 2009 is gonna be U2's year...so why would they do like this then?

Seriously, if they're not going to Australia cause they think it's not worth it then they probably won't go to South America either. Way to go U2, you... well, let's wait until there's official confirmation. Last time, South America wasn't confirmed until three months before the gigs.

The tour name will probably be something with FIRE, because that seems to occur a lot on the new album.

The WE'RE ON FIRE tour

or something.

They could have great pyrotechnics. Bono could jump through rings of fire. That will be a HOT show.


Seriously, if they'd only play Thu-Sat every week, the tour will last 10 years.

The "So Why Should I Just Let A Complete Stranger Into My Home, Would You?" tour.
Wow, imagine that on the t-shirts.
I can see that once the lyrics for NLOTH leak, there will be people scanning them for any and all possibilities for tour names.

springsteen did a similar tourning schedule for stadiums in the US, i.e. mostly just weekend dates... every date was thursday thru monday...

2/28 Hartford, CT HCC Arena Set List
3/2 Montreal, QC Bell Centre Set List
3/3 Hamilton, ONT Copps Coliseum Set List
3/6 Rochester, NY Blue Cross Arena Set List
3/7 Buffalo, NY HSBC Arena Set List
3/10 Hempstead, NY Nassau Coliseum Set List
3/14 Omaha, NE Quest Center Set List
3/16 St. Paul, MN Xcel Center Set List
3/17 Milwaukee, WI Bradley Center Set List
3/20 Indianapolis, IN Conseco Fieldhouse Set List
3/22 Cincinnati, OH U.S. Bank Arena Set List
3/24 Columbus, OH Schottenstein Center Set List
3/28 Portland, OR The Rose Garden Set List
3/29 Seattle, WA Key Arena Set List

4/28 Greensboro, NC Greensboro Coliseum Set List
4/30 Charlottesville, VA John Paul Jones Arena Set List
5/2 Ft Lauderdale, FL Bank Atlantic Center Set List
5/7 Red Bank, NJ Count Basie Theatre Set List


perhaps u2 is taking a page from bruce with this "weekend only" idea. so it's not as crazy as some may think it sounds... it's been done before. with all the health issues that various members of the e-street had, and bruce's voice, the kids, etc.

after the cancelations of the vertigo tour, moving of shows, etc. that stretched the tour out for so long... the stress on the families because of illness, etc.

they just don't want to get stuck in that situation again, and it's pretty easy to see why and would be pretty selfish of us to complain about it if this does, in fact, end up being the case.
