2016 Rumour Dates?

Helllllllooooooooo, hellllllllooooooo.

I am looking for some help. I am trying to figure out if I have a hope in hell to get to see U2 this tour. Does anyone know any of the North America dates or if they're even doing a 2016 tour (who are we kidding they are). I am now an adult, with an adult life and I had no money to go to Vancouver, to which I am not impressed with. But any rumours would help.

Edit: the damn smilies don't work on my phone!!!! I tried so hard to remember them :cry:

Look who's back!

Nothing but rumors. A crew member told someone recently the tour might go into 2017 as well.

At tonight's show in LA, Bono said, "See you next year!"

Hard to say. The third leg of the Vertigo tour was announced in early March 2005 (even before the first leg started) I guess that would have had something to do with the mess up that was the first leg of the Vertigo tour ticket sales.

I would say sometime around November-December they will announce dates for next year.

Well that's a start, but Bono lies.

Southamerican tour in the 2nd half of 2016.
My guess would be October/November.

Edge spoke of a 10 week window after this tour ends where they could conceivably finish Songs of Experience, if they had the motivation to do so.

So clearly there is a plan to continue touring into 2016, and it would seem as if their plans are to start the tour around February 2016... which would point towards starting in the southern hemisphere and/or warmer climate.

Starting a tour in the US or Europe in February could present some logistical nightmares.

Yeah, it seems like it's a matter of it'll be South America or the Pacific for February/March.. and whoever doesn't get the start, will get the end in November-December.

US/Europe to get the summer, surely.

I work in the industry that runs and manages professional sports arenas and stadiums. I know for a fact that U2's organization has been talking to Heinz Field (NFL stadium) in Pittsburgh about a future gig. Nothing locked in yet, and I don't know details on what dates they are targeting.

U2 toured through Europe and the US during January and February on the Unforgettable Fire Tour. There are many artist who tour through January and February in the United States. Sometimes its good for business because there is less competition on the road during that time of the year.

Wow, look who it is.

Anyway, there have been fairly strong rumours regarding Europe in first half of 2016, and more general rumours about basically everywhere else for any time next year.

Yep, and they played Heinz Field in 2011. They won't play Heinz Field when they come to Pittsburgh in 2016 as demand for the current tour in the United States is about half of what it was for 360 four years ago. They play one show at the civic arena and add a second show there if there is demand for it. I don't think the band are interested in risking a repeat of Popmart Pittsburgh when only 27,000 people show up for the concert.

At Phoenix 2 I talked to a roadie who worked w/ them on the 360 tour. I was talking to him as they were sending the techs/spotlight guys up.

I was just talking about the production and PA setup with him. He was saying how nice this tour was w/ multiple dates in one city, etc. Said they only have 10 tear down and 10 setups.

Told him with that kind of setup U2 would be crazy not to tour again next year w/ the same setup ( I assumed it'll be stadiums next year).

He then told me there doing arenas in the US starting next May (2016) and stadiums in 2017.

They can easily hit up more California dates, Las Vegas, Seattle, Texas, Florida, Georgia, & the northeast next year w/ this setup.
