INFO: Be careful what you beLIEve! Tour cancellation info.

Well, I've been sitting on the side lines since the news of this broke earlier today...

I've read some of the rumors, and I've been passed some OTHER rumors from pretty reliable sources.

I instantly starting doing a bit of detective work, contacting several people... and as of this point I have not got a confirmation or denial on ANY of the rumors (some of which are very credible but have not yet leaked to the masses (fans/news/etc)).

As soon as I do get some 'official' statement I will post it.

Please TRY to be patient and not jump to conclusions. There must be a very good reason that this leg of the tour has been cancelled, and I'm sure it's in the band's best interest. Please try to keep this in mind.

I think it's very wise of them. They need time off, time away from the spot light. They can now devote a lot of time to the next album. Overexposure can hurt a band more than anything.

I can officially confirm that this leg of the Tour has NOT been cancelled.The fact of the matter is that neither the band or Paul McGuiness announced a next leg in the first place.This was all online rumours and they have been blown out of the water.
Roll on the next album because U2 arent touring in the summer.

Cheers.
Henke.

The band has even been quoted mentioning the upcoming summer tour... officially announced or not, it was planned, dates had been booked, and it was being mentioned from within. If you have some OFFICIAL information, besides rewording the VAGUE news bit at u2.com, please state what it is.

It all stems from the infamous lima bean incident of 1983...

Stemming from an email sent to me from Willie Williams (or at least a mailing list he put me on) I was led to believe that there would be a tour.

The exact quote was:

"Having just survived Superbowl, Iíll be back at the helm of the U2 ship in July when we do a round of European stadiums. Rumour has it that this tour will end one day!

W.W"

This, of course, led me to believe that there would be a short tour. I thought it would be following a new album or EP much like after Zooropa was released but my suspicions are as follows:

1. I bet the band did plan these dates (with or without Oasis)

2. I bet they are working on a new album and wanted to get some new songs ont he road

3. I bet there is a very good chance that they did cancel the shows to complete a new album

4. I bet there will be a tour following a new album taking them through Europe, South America and then maybe a few shows in the US sometime in 2003.

Of course this is all heresay, but from the email I received, I have to think that the summer tour was at least in the planning stages...

If U2 have any tour dates to announce in the future you can be sure U2.Com will bring them to you as soon as they are officially confirmed."

Now, excuse me while I throw a huge tantrum and then pout for a LONG period of time....

You were planning on going to Europe to see them?
