Now that Australia/NZ/South America is a done deal...

(for all intents and purposes)

...is North America going to get some more dates next year?

15-20 stadiums of Vertigo "outside broadcast" would be a nice, profitable, fun way to end the tour, especially in high profile venues like Fenway & Wrigley.

I think North America has gotten more than enough. That said, I wouldn't complain if we got a stadium tour.

Considering how fast the tickets went for Legs 1 and 3, I think U2 could easily justify making a return trip here next year. The demand is obviously there.

I don't think the Red Sox want them there anymore after seeing what the Rolling Stones did to the field this past August.

I'm in North America, and I think they should just go to Aus/NZ/Japan/Africa/Mexico/South America/Eastern Europe before they even think about coming back here

it's a World Tour, not North America and half of Europe Tour

I agree.

20 Australia/NZ/Japan/South America/Japan dates in February-March

20-30 arenas in Europe in May-June

15-20 North American stadiums in August-September.

No, just very solid rumours.

Australia is confirmed.

Nothing has been said about New Zealand, I don't see why it's mentioned in this thread.

i agree 100% hence why i said if the U.S. has a valid reason for another leg then why not europe

but imo there are other parts of the world which you mentioned that are more deserving at this time

what exactly did Earnie say?
was it Australia/South America and Japan?
or more?

I am late to the "party" so to speak, I didn't even hear about it until just now.

Is this looking like a 4th leg POPmart sort-of-thing?
I don't think they have enough time for a Zoomerang-esque quick album and tour.

I guess we'll find out next week, right?

The info from info@numb.ie is that nothing is confirmed.

But I hope that we can think Australia (from Paul McGuinness) and S. America (from crew clipboards ¬¬) are confirmed.

I've always thought that perhaps before or after the S. American and Mexican dates U2 would add a few dates in US stadiums (NY/NJ, Boston, Chicago, LA, FLA) to perhaps counter the Mex/S. American dates financially--and because they'd be in the same side of the world and they might as well

(Oh, and because they will want to play songs from the new album on American soil!.....eh, a girl can dream...)

i'd be really surprised if the band tour north america or europe in summer 2006. they will have done quite a long tour already and have played so many dates in both places already.
