Australia doesn't quite know what the fuck is happening 2007-2029

Please continue our ever changing thread of hope/desperation/infuriation/dislocation/mediation/information.

Naturally we started with this...

http://forum.interference.com/t131590.html

then this...

http://forum.interference.com/t138842.html

Thus our previous thread had drifted off-topic from utter distain to unfounded hope.



Continue.

2007 to 2029????

Well, it seems I have a week free in April, 2016. Surely U2 could tour Australia then, couldn't they?

Adam and Bono would be 56 years old then!

I have been checking these threads for a while now. Just for the heck of it, i'm going to throw a date in the mix. January 18, 2006 Sydney Superdome. I don't know anything, but they guy who told me thinks he does. I still agree with you guys that it will happen in March.

Does anyone know if we are getting the "All because of you" single and the "Vertigo - live from Chicago" dvd?

18 January 2006 at the Sydney Super Dome is an old rumour. It placed U2 in Sydney on 13, 14, 17, and 18 of January.

What I don't understand is how come coldplay have already been confirmed as coming, 7 months in advance (in June I think) while u2 are rumoured to be here in March and there hasn't yet been confirmation

Because Coldplay are at a far less money-grabbing part of their career. They've always been very generous to other countries, in Australia alone they have performed on under-watched critically acclaimed musical shows like Max Sessions & Cold Live At The Chapel. They did Splendour which isn't exactly a money bonanza. The only worrying trend is if they drop off NZ... first NZ then Australia... then they are U2.

I hope you do, some kind of satellite hookup. Good luck! If not, I am sure there will be copies of it available, and I think Gorman is going to be live streaming it here on Interference.

Gorman will be streaming it live and uploading captured audio afterwards so we'll get to listen if nothing else. Full footage will be torrented by someone too.

I'm almost certain the show's on Foxtel, not sure when or how delayed it is, and I think I've seen it delayed on free to air at ridiculous hours too.

Just curious if U2 do come down here, how many shows will you guys be going to and where? I myself will try and get tickets to all the shows in Melbourne I think

For me, all this seems like its dragging on to nothing. I really think if they were coming in March like Axver says, they would have announced it by now. Especially considering the ticket prices and such.

Basically, I think I have lost all faith in them coming, Im sure Im not the only one! I did kinda have some hope a last week but its gone now. Even my petition only has a little over 100 signatures!

Now, really, I want someone to reply to this post and reassure me all is okay. Someone with a little bit of inside info or something.

I hate them for it but will still buy the DVD!
