Do you think somewhere like Bahrain or the UAE would be viable? Comparatively open societies, and with shitloads of Western residents and visitors. I think they could play at least one show in that part of the world and do well.

I completely agree with regards to Africa. Though what about Kenya? Recent civil strife aside, it's generally been a fairly prosperous, Western-oriented place, and it hosted some 2003 Cricket World Cup games. That said, I think a realistic African tour schedule would be: Cairo, whatever Moroccan city has the best stadium venue, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria or Johannesburg.
UAE could work.

I'd have said Nairobi six months ago, yes. But as Tanzania is next door (just a long ass busride!) and almost as prosperous and currently more stable. Botswana's also quite prosperous but they'd do better to play like Durban is it? that is close to Botswana, and people could travel for it.

Sorry, I'm falling behind with this tour analytical stuff.

I'll do the running diary around 1pm my time tomorrow. I'll definitely be up and about by then.

Singapore was originally on the Popmart schedule but mysteriously vanished. The Philippines keep appearing in rumours over the last few years. I think Thailand and Malaysia could both sustain shows: their capitals are relatively wealthy and plenty of Westerners holiday there and would boost numbers. I imagine they could possibly even do Indonesia.

But the lack of South Korean and Indian concerts is absolutely inexcusable.

Not true. A lot of the "Detroit" shows are in Auburn Hills. Add Auburn Hills in to the Detroit total and you'll see it's more than Adelaide.

Is that general area the only place they play in Michigan?

Oh, they HAVE to do this. I mean, if they can do Liechtenstein, they can go anywhere, right?

Also, if anyone's interested in preparing for the upcoming Minlaton concert, here's some information about it: Minlaton, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia

Please note that the main attraction is a walking trail. (A girl died there in the 70s, so it's exciting stuff!).

Good point. If Kenya re-stabilises, Nairobi should be able to sustain a concert.

And your South African geography is shaky, isn't it? Durban is coastal. The cities closest to Botswana that I named are Pretoria and Jo'burg - it would probably be a waste to play both of them, as they are so close together.

Also, isn't Dakar fairly Western-looking and relatively wealthy? I'd have thought U2 might be able to do a gig there, but then again, from what I've read before, most people in Senegal's part of the world aren't interested in the kind of music U2 makes.

Minlaton is clearly a happening place! Can't wait for Bono to preach about how he went for a walk on that trail and the story of the girl's death reminded him of Africa! Does the local school have a decent sized hall for the concert or something?

Cool.

At this rate, I'll be going to bed in the next 30-40 minutes, so I should be up around 11am-midday. Which is more for Vazza's information than yours. Vazza, how's that thesis?
