I didn't wanna start a new topic about Spanish dates, but can anyone summarize what they say here? Rumors/Info on Spanish concerts?

Valencia y Las Palmas quieren a U2 en 2009



Según publica Levante-EMV, el presidente de la Diputación de Valencia, Alfons Rus, ha admitido que U2 actuará en Valencia, más concretamente en el Circuito Ricardo Tormo, aunque todavía no hay fechas cerradas. Levante-EMV ya adelantaba en octubre de este año que el concierto estaba a falta de unos flecos para cerrarse pero que la promotora de su gira ya había dado el visto bueno a las instalaciones de Cheste.

La gira de U2 está organizada por la promotora norteamericana Live Nation la misma que trajo a Valencia a Madonna y Police. La gira de U2, salvo cambios de última hora, comenzará en verano. Aunque todo depende de su nuevo disco, cuyo título provisional es No line on the horizon. El trabajo debía haberse publicado en otoño pero el grupo irlandés decidió modificar el repertorio inicial previsto y aún trabaja en su conclusión.


Las Palmas se suma a la puja


Hace varios días, nos llegó información de que la promotora Maldito Rodríguez podría llevar a U2 al Estadio de Gran Canaria en Las Palmas. La fórmula para llenar el estadio radicaría en la venta de parte de las entradas a través de un tour-operador para colocarlas en la Península y el extranjero. Maldito Rodríguez ni desmiente ni confirma la noticia, pero a día de hoy, sólo es un rumor más que, sin embargo, refleja el interés de todas las ciudades por hacerse con una fecha dentro del calendario de la gira de U2 para 2009-10.

Probably the only way I get to see more than 1-2 shows is if the tour starts in Europe in the summer and goes to the states in the fall. so fingers crossed.

so... let's play with this...

June/July/August 2009 - Europe
Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec - US + Canada + Mexico
Feb/Mar - Australia + NZ + Japan
New Album
May/June/July/August - Europe + US + ROW
Oct/Nov - Southamerica (End of Tour)


ending in Chile, of course

The thing is that the promoter that brought Madonna to Lisbon in 2004 and 2008 was not the same that brought U2.
The one that brought U2 to Lisbon in 2005 was the same one that was supposed to bring back Depeche Mode (they cancelled due to financial troubles with... the promoter) - both played in Estádio de Alvalade. And U2 played in Estádio de Alvalade (the new one was specifically conceived to have concert shows) the three times they came (1993, 1997 and 2005 - in 1982 it was in a festival in the North), so I hope they repeat it.

I took 4 years of Spanish in high school and I really wish I remembered most of it.

When Vertigo was released to radio back in 2004 wasn't it made available on itunes shortly after, way before the single was released on CD? If that's the case then maybe the new single would be available for download fairly soon as well.

The way I remember it, a high quality MP3 of Vertigo leaked a few hours after it was played on the radio, and it showed up on iTunes the next day.

Interesting. Start in Europe, stadiums. I guess between March and start of July (Spain, Italy, then Amsterdam) there's plenty of time to rehearse.

(but no doubt a second US leg to follow in 2010...)

It only says that promotors are trying to bring U2 to stadiums in Valencia and Las Palmas (Spain), but there is nothing confirmed.

Well, the president of Valencia region said U2 will play in Valencia next summer. This is not a rumor, is a fact, and won't say "problaby"...

This man could be lying (he is a politician after all), of course, but this is not a rumor
