Nice way to end a friday!!!

NORTH AMERICA: Multiple extra dates are rumoured to be added to the tour schedule. U2.com accidentally "announced" that U2 would play Baltimore on 2011-06-22, then quietly removed it from an otherwise unrelated article. Nashville is rumoured for 2011-07-02. Boston is rumoured with no specific date.
(Status: Baltimore looks certain; Nashville looks likely; Boston, who knows.)
It's already in the rumour mill. It's probably a matter of time before U2.com announces Baltimore, then after they'll accidentally leak Nashville.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Hmm, still with the Vanderbilt instead of LP Field. Go figure.

Well, I'll say this much: Vanderbilt will be a lot easier to sell out since its smaller.


Will this show be their only foray into the south next year? Someone start up a New Orleans rumor. (Miami isn't exactly my idea of "the south".)

Hotels near LP are the shits. I already have my room booked at the lovely Vanderbilt Marriott, I'm OK with that!

I am SO excited about this Nashville show... such an exciting locale to me. Because I am Rattle & Hum freak, I love the idea of going to see them in Tennessee. Can't wait to wear my kickass Edge JT/RH hat to this one!

My undisclosed and hitherto-unmentioned source (who is, of course, 100% accurate) says that there will be a show in Austin at Royal Memorial Stadium on 2011-05-18.

I think alot of this has to do with Vanderbilt's renovation. They are installing FIELD TURF in July, and the $$$$ from the concerts will help pay for the installation

LP Field is probably too big as well

Would you drive this or fly? If you were going to drive, I think a road trip together would be epic. :

I used to live in Nashville. The Holiday Inn Express Vanderbilt on West End. is 100 yards from Vandy's stadium. Nice place to stay for cheap.

a drive would be nice but depends on a few things however it is only 4 hr drive from home so I may very well be driving.

sweet thanks. I think I will reserve now. I don't see the Holiday Inn Express just the Holiday Inn. With that said, I went ahead and reserved a room at the Marriott at Vanderbelt. Not cheap but not too expensive. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/trav...lt-university/

Yeah, the Marriott isn't that bad with AAA. I reserved a room from 7/1-7/3.

I wish they would go ahead and announce this and Baltimore. I may have to make a choice between these two
