U2 splitting up rumor

I've looked and looked and can't find anything to substantiate the rumor that this is their last tour--that Bono wants to do his debt relief program and help his wife with her ventures--so they're calling it a day. Please tell me it's just a rumor and a bad one at that.

They wouldn't split up now. They're on contract for a third best of at the end of the decade....a lot of fans think that's sort of a flag date for when the end of U2 may come.

I don't think so. Yes, Bono said he wants to do his activism for the rest of his life (and Larry said something about not doing a tour if there was a way out in Making of Vertigo video, and wasn't he talking about acting and teaching his son soccer?) but I don't think that means no more U2 after this tour. I think 2 more albums and a third Best of, after 2010 we'll see...

think that thay still have time to do 2 more albums... the "talked-about-HTDAAB-continuation-in-2006" (which I'm still don't buying) and another one.. beign maybe their last studio album.. THEN the Best Of 2000-2010 and their last "farewell" tour... at least that's what I'll do

U2 'till 2012...

in fact, that's supose to be the last year of the world... so that'd be nice... the end of U2 is the end of the world

There's always going to be someone fearmongering and claiming U2 are splitting up.

U2 spliting up, last time they said that we got One, so this will lead to another classic U2 song, maybe Two.

I dont see them splitting up anytime soon, I see them taking even longer in between albums and tours.

2006? highly highly doubt it

try 2008, maybe 2007 if we are lucky. I really could see a long hiatus after this album and tour.

as for the "best of" argument, they aren't contractually obligated to record any more music. If they spilt up today, the 3rd best of would be best of 2000-2005. The only obligation is that the 3rd Best Of goes to Island Records, it doesn't much matter what years it covers.

I think one more album for sure, maybe two.

And also, as I put on my Nostradomus hat, I see more and more threads just like this one. Especially after the tour is over and they talk about going into the studio and then the waiting begins and goes on and on and on.......

I got my news of this from my brother and sil who said it was on the national news. It won't be the first time the news has been wrong.

A third "Best Of" could be a career spanning retrospective...just a thought.

Here we go again. This goes on every album/tour, and when one day it actually happens, those fans who predicted that one will say, "See, I told you so!"

I reckon if it happens - they should have a HUGE bust-up on stage in front of thousands. Edge cracks the guitar over Bono's head, Bono then (Kurt Cobain-Style) jumps onto Larry's drum kit - whilst Adam sets fire to his Bass and dances around it naked, in a kind of Native American Indian ritual.

About the Adam part above. Hehe is he practising for that this tour with his walk around the ellipse?

Since there are three decades now, shouldn't there also be a song called Three?
