Rumoured extra date for Melbourne Nov

Channel 7 announced a possible "G8 type" show in Melbourne on 21st November at Telstra Dome on the news tonight. Not much more detail other than it will be for charity.

I was told about this aswell, apparently they showed footage of Bono talking about it recorded with a camera phone.

It looked like some old video off U2.com. He was talking about Make Poverty History in general.

anyway.. . great news for those who failed to get tickets for the earlier shows.

Well, the schedule certainly allows for a third show to be slotted in on the 21st, and ever since the tour was announced, I was wondering if there would be something in there. I hope there is!

Putting them on the bill would be the quickest way to slash attendance figures in half.

Kylie, a definite possibility, good friend of Bono's and all, Melbourne is her home town, big crowd/attention puller in Australia. INXS, no fucking way will you see that happen.

If it is in G20/Festival type vein, they will probably make up the balance with Aussie acts who will be around for Homebake the week after, like Silverchair etc. This type of gig also sounds like the perfect coat tails for Powderfiner to ride Count them in as well.

I still don't get the idea of having a gig aimed at G20 being held 2 days after the conference has ended though.

edit: And just as I post, I see that the date booked is now the 17th, which makes way more sense. But the Myer Music Bowl wtf is this Carols By Candlelight?

People, there is NO WAY U2 will play on the 17th. Look at the schedule:

16/11 - Adelaide
18/11 - Melbourne
19/11 - Melbourne

Adding a performance on 17/11 is four performances in four days. U2 haven't even played three days in a row this tour (and only done it once on both Elevation and Popmart), and I don't think they've done four days in a row since the bloody War Tour!

So I say the 17th is out.

It's not like it would be a full set or anything, and the boys will be really well rested considering where the previous gig is.

If U2 + Kanye + Pearl Jam + Robbie/Kylie were all to play at the same gig for free, there would only be one venue in Melbourne that would get remotely close to holding them all. And that place would be kind of cool fully decked out for a gig.

Would be great to see.

U2 very rarely play three nights in a row these days though but 2-3 songs like Live 8 shouldn't be out of the question.

If they bring some other bands over from the UK/Ireland it'd be fookin mega!

This would all be so cool! I'd say it would be televised too!

They could just use Telstra Dome and the Vertigo stage and make it like Slane, a U2 show with an extended support.

U2 - 2 hrs
Kylie Minogue - 1 hr 20mins
Robbie Williams - 1 hr
BILLY JOEL - 1 hr (come on....)
Silverchair - 45mins
Powderfinger - 45mins
Youth Group - 30 mins
Little Birdy - 30 mins

Alas...Billy Joel will be in Brisbane on the 21st (assuming that would be the date). I will just have to sing Piano Man to myself then!
