Talking about extensions… and no, we’re so not going there, we’ve been told Paul McGuinness announced on RTE’s news bulletin that the band are considering taking this outdoor show to the States next year.

thats not the point, if they are taking the stadium show to the U.S. then why not bring the arena show to the U.K.? visit places like birmingham then?

and i was meant to say the whole of europe is only getting 1 leg, while the U.S. could get 3?

If they indeed do stadium show's in the us it seem's that their worried how the album is doing there at moment and stadium show's next year will keep it relevant and sell a shedload more albums

I reckon that this increases the chances of some new music being released.

I'm a U.S. fan near Boston who will have seen U2 four times this year. While it would be nice to see U2 again in 2006 at Gillette Stadium, the better side of me feels for people in other continents of the world (Australia, to name just one) who might ordinarily see the band play there.

In this case, the good side of me is going to win-out over the selfish side of me.

We were speculating on this yesterday in the setlist 'par-tay' thread. It seems like the most reasonable thing is they would do stadiums in only a few cities like NY, Chicago and Boston, and they'd probably do it in the spring after they go to Austrailia and Asia in the early part of the year (at least that's what u2tours is guessing).

they play a lot of shows in the US because that's where they can make the most money... there is no other reason.

Oh god, no. I hope Bono learns some new lines and stories next year. Talk about beating a dead horse. I guess 20 million for each band member isn't enough. And how are they going to compete with Floyd and Radiohead next year? They should take a break.
