Coldplay have also 2 dates booked at the stadium on September 19th & 20th which in my opinion would of been much better timing!

I can't imagine anything better than U2 in Wembley Stadium! I'm hoping for stadiums. Although in an ideal world, I'd love to see em in a stadium and an arena.

good for you Europe. it's been a while since you got a start of a tour. wait, have you ever gotten a 1st leg?
U2 were touring Ireland and the UK well before anywhere else - 1980 anyone?

They played Manchester twice I think in 2005, played Glasgow and Cardiff I think. On Elevation I believe they played Birmingham NIA. And on Popmart and Zoo TV they played Roundhay Park in Leeds which would suit me fine as that is local for me. Although I strongly doubt they will grace Yorkshire again unfortunately!

I've said it before and i'll say it again...give me the O2 over Wembley anyday. It's a thousand times better for live gigs.

I personally would be dissapointed if they start the tour in Europe, but that's just because I live in the states. It's not like Europe doesn't deserve it after the past I don't know how many tours kicked off in America. I personally really like the rawness the tours have at the beginning. I thought it was awesome that they changed the set around so much at the start of the Vertigo tour...it made things that much more exciting.

hi,

I'm Lucia - Luxy - the italian girl who was in Hanover quay last thursday.
First of all thanks for the big lasagna picture, that's my favourite meal....
About the rumours, I just posted to my friends of u2place.com the news that I had from Sam O'Sullivan and Adam Clayton. They both told me, even if it's still unofficial, that the single will be released on radio the 19th of january and the tour will start next summer in Spain, probably at the end of june...they're gonna play in my country in July and Adam told about Amsterdam too.
They also added that they missed the first leg in Usa because the new album in coming out next march. So the tour will start in europe (stadiums) and then Usa (indoor shows).Talking with Sam O'sullivan ( one of the kindest man I've ever spoken to) I understood something about O2 in London ( maybe 2 shows ) but I'm not sure, but he confirmed me that the album is done and it's already in production.
There were people working for the promonotial things too, so it's clear that the big machine is moving on!...I had the impression that they're in hurry, quite nervous and definitely busy!!...but it's ok...they're gonna make it as always.

Cool story. So the USA leg, you're saying, would have been first and would have started very soon, only the album was pushed back more than 3 months so that USA leg was scrapped and apparently tacked on more toward the end?

Interesting stuff.
