I'm buying what this guy says. Summer Europe Tour, back to family/studio over the holidays. Spring/Summer US tour. If they are only doing stadium shows the weekend schedule, similar to Bruce's, makes sense for the US.

Maybe we can call it the Expensive Jetlag tour...
All three of them with families have brought their families to the U.S for extended periods of time before (meaning an entire Fall or an entire year), the kids are either enrolled in local schools or receive private tutoring.

i'll wait till we get some sort of official announcement or itinerary or something. if they don't come here till next year thats okay, more time to save up. if they do come here, cool, get to see them sooner. right now i'd just like to have the new album already.

if the tour will be THAT massive, they surely MUST bring it here to Southamerica and basically everywhere in the world...


when you have something that big, if more people can see itm, the better. People will pay and they'll be satisfied

And one of Bono's daughters is a student at a "prestigious American university," (anyone know which one?), so perhaps U2 will be able to swing by campus on the tour

South America, Canada and Europe are musts on any tour. Even POP did fairly well in those regions.

the problem outside of the US/Canada and Europe isn't demand by the fans... the problems are largely distance (australia/new zealand) and government corruption (south america) driving up show costs.

Part of the audience interaction is to do with texting and crowd video content that you can submit prior to going to a show. You'll be able to upload a video to u2.com. The audience video is then used in the visuals for the show. Steve said the concept was to extend Zoo TV which drew on TV content from around the world - this is the fans content. Real life. They envisage fans making the soundbites / visuals this time around. Willie is going to be busy!!!

Also, Steve said the tour is not called after any of the songs on the album but a lyric of one of the songs.
Maybe its the Reboot Yourself Tour.

It was more like "put down that fucking phone".

She/He wishes he would have send "shush now".

I was at that show.
