Yucky Rumour

I read on another board a horrid rumour. I'm not sure whether or not I should be spreading it, but in light of the tour not happening in Europe this summer, I thought you guys would like to know. The rumour is that Adam is leaving the band, and it was heard supposedly from a reliable source.

This was posted on March 10th:
"there was this big fight between edge and adam because of something to do with adam being spotted with courtney cox recently (really adam, you could do better!) and the morals issue was at hand cos she's still married to what's his name... adam brought up the whole 'religious differences' thing and about not feeling 'united' with the band anymore. i guess bono was dragged into the ordeal too and tried to rationalize, but ended up arguing also... "

Then, after the news of the tour not happening someone else posted this:

"Things are just not looking good. I'm not trying to be a rumor-spreader...but I hear they were supposed to play at the Irish Music Awards, and didn't. Then Adam didn't show up for a performance. Now the tour rumors are being dispelled. It just makes me really uneasy. And my friend saw some sort of interview on TV in which she said Larry seemed to allude to the fact that the rest of them aren't totally down with Bono's extracuricular activities"

I hope someone can confirm that this is garbage!

Well for sure the Larry thing is just taken totally out of context. It's what he said during 60 minutes, except that 60 minutes episode was taped over a year ago. That's over a hundred live shows ago.

I don't buy it. But if Adam did leave the band, there is no band in my opinion.

I certainly hope this is just one of those stupid rumours that is irrational (the Rattle and Hum to Achtung Baby era rings a bell, and so does the rumours after and before Pop) and completely forgotten a week later. Arrrrrgh. Still makes me nauseated just thinking about it though.

I hope that this is just a rumor because if Adam leaves the band then that will be the end of U2. They have said it many times before, and I tend to agree, that what makes U2 special is the four of them.

The band have been through many ups and downs though, and they have pulled through, and developed a stronger relationship because of it. Hopefully this is just the case here!!!

O.K. people.....

Was Adam really spotted with Courtney Cox - and what were they spotted doing? We could probably put the rumor to rest right there.

Then, you have to remember the source - another board. We all know that these boards are filled with pranksters.

I really hate that Board. It's amazing that that's the U2.com board but it really has a whole lot of vicious, u2 hating people. Everytime I go there to read anything it's all negative. In fact if the Band goes there to read the posts they must really walk away feeling bad.

If they go by what people say on that Board, they're probably not touring because there supposed fans think they suck.

That's one of the most absurd things I've ever read. Don't give it another thought.

Well there ya go...
Sounds like the usual skanky ass pieces of shite just trying to stir up the usual garbage...I think I'll ignore these stenchy rumours from now on. No need to get my blood in a boil.
You find that alot...ppl showing up to boards just for the sake of exactly that...showing up to boards and pulling people's wanks.
I've only once glanced at Zootopia and never went back....it's too cozy here...and generally we are all U2 fans here.
Thanks, Boston Anne for letting me know where you heard this. I feel so much better now.

Ok, I admit, when I fist read this my heart skipped a beat... the thought of anyone leaving the band and the band breaking up make me nauxious. But... after some thought... even if Adam was having an affair with Courtenay, do you really think Edge and Adam would have a moral argument over it? Sorry, but that just seems absurd.
And as for Larry being less than pleased with Bono's extra curricular activities... I don't think Bono would ever let that get in the way of the band.

Adam may seem a little less a part of the band at times, but his heart seems to be with it fully. We all saw him at the Grammy's. This did not look like a band in turmoil.

Re. the tour being cancelled... it was never officially on the go in the first place, so there was nothing to cancel. Yeah, perhaps a few tentative stadium reservations... but seriously. My heart can't handle such nonsense.

I've also read that Courteney is pregnant with her hubby's baby, so I'm sure she's isn't straying from the nest.

Who knows - these are all very rich people whom we don't know much about other than what their publicists and rumour-mongers leak out. I love U2 - but I can never assume to know what any of them would fight about, break up over, or do on a night out.

Guys think for a minute.
We saw Adam just a week ago at the Grammys. Somehow he didnt look like a man who was ready to quit his band. He was laughing the whole time.
Its a load of crap and nothing more.

We love you Sparky!!!!
