Purely coincidental, of course.

My favourite were the people in 2006 claiming that U2 were totally going to play Fenway Park, despite the whole "we're not touring right now" thing.

And let's hope they at least do stadiums next time around in the US. Playing seven gigs in Boston and eight in NYC is a bit ridiculous when both cities have perfectly playable stadiums.

Ah, but i never claimed to be a U2 venues expert.

I thought they may have played Fenway on Zoo TV because they did Yankee Stadium. But i guess they played Foxboro instead.

Shame Vazza isn't around right now. I remember her absolutely blasting Lichens, the opener at the EITS gig she saw. On a community I follow on LJ, somebody just posted a Lichens album, raving about the guy, so after laughing, I just had to download it.

Yeah, I was figuring they'd probably hit Fenway on ZooTV or Popmart, but no, just Foxboro.

Well, one of the local papers at the time had a small blurb about it, which got everyone who lives around here in a frenzy. I believe I merely commented that while I'd love for it to be true, there was just no way it was happening given it was 2006.

And yes, I agree regarding stadiums. Two or three shows at Fenway would help with that.
