U2.com - dates within the next "week"! All Upcoming Tour Dates Discussion Continued!

500+ posts and 10 days after U2.com's announcement and we're still waiting. Hints point towards an announcement in the next 24 hours - or do they? Hints point towards extra dates - or do they?

All, it seems, will be revealed in U2.com's sweet little time.

So let's continue our discussion ...

The state of rumours for those just joining us. The following are all rumoured:

- 8 weeks of Vertigo ending in mid-December.
- Australian dates between 6-19 November.
- Sydney on 10, 11, possibly 13 November.
- Melbourne in the third week of November.
- Auckland on 24, 25 November.
- Tokyo Dome on 14, 15 December.
- Hawaii on either 9 or 31 December. Last show of tour?

And something on the U2.com forums is apparently flashing -24, which hopefully implies an announcement in less than 24 hours.

Well, I'll say it again here - someone heard the Carter Alan announcement at u2tour@yahoogroups.com - I don't belong to the group so I don't know much about it but I was forwarded the message...

So let's continue our discussion ...
I wouldn't say the hints are valid enough for us to say that. I guess I would agree with "or do they?"

Realistically, there is no reason to expect it. The delay wouldn't be caused by it necessarily, because they would have known this and been planning it along side the other dates.

Well, -24 you say? Hours, we're assuming... My second guess for the announcement was Friday Aussie time, but it seems like that would be kinda early for most of the cities this would pertain to, isn't it?

I wonder: if the -24 does indeed refer to hours, is it intended to be an accurate countdown, or just another piece of vagueness from U2.com?

I guess we'll find out if it changes to -23. But as it stands, it's just past 7am here in Australia, so if it ends around this time tomorrow, then I suppose the news will be out for the morning rush hour?

With the handling of things, it would be likely based on Irish times.

I'm putting my money on another piece of vagueness. But what do I know?! This waiting is getting aggravating. Hopefully the good news will come soon.

Jack Bauer will join U2 on stage for the 24th song of each concert.

24 days until the next announcement that the dates are coming in a week, that they are working really hard, and they thank you for your patience

From a dyslexic mistake, the meaning of life is found out to be 24, not 42 as originally thought.
