Are these the added dates?

I just checked U2.com and I see 2 more shows each listed for Montreal, Boston, Chicago, and NY. Interestingly, each is listed as also having a presale.

"Overwhelming demand.." Yeah right, like you folks didn't know that was going to happen...like duh.

At least those who want GA's and didn't get them in the presale now have a chance. As well as people like me, who are better prepared this time, and were hoping for delayed added shows...

so true. It was figured out long ago exactly where and pretty much when they were going to add the extra dates. I understand they need to wait to see if the actual demand is there but it sucks. If they'd release tickets for ALL the shows at the same time the demand wouldn't be freakishly out of control and more people would be able to get the tickets they want. Then again maybe it just means they could fuck everyone over all at once and line the pockets of scalpers basically right in front of our faces.

Well this fucks things up for scalpers actually, now they have to dump prices at these venues.

I wonder if LA doesn't get the extra dates they were planning on, could they have a hold on 1 or 2 arena's elsewhere?

My thoughts exactly. Bunch of bullcrap pretending there would be no disastrous demand in Amsterdam and New York with only 2 dates.


Though it's nice I now only have to focus on 2 dates instead of four. This sale date will be slightly quieter than the first as there won't be as many people wanting to go to all four shows. So a bunch of people that got tickets for the first two dates will be gone.

I'm surprised by that, but they could still be announced later. Barcelona's first two go on sale today, with a space (and almost certainly demand) for two extras to be announced tomorrow. Maybe they'll announce extra Barcelona and London shows at once.

I won't be shocked if there are still a handful of extra dates to come in the US either, especially two more in New York to bring its total to eight. Incidentally, if there ARE eight New York shows, it will equal the record for most U2 shows in one city on the same tour (Sydney, Lovetown) and beat the record for the most consecutive U2 shows in one city (seven in Melbourne, Lovetown; the eight in Sydney were in non-consecutive blocks of three, two, and three).

In case anybody is wondering, here are the remaining gaps where extra shows could be announced - sticking rigidly to the two days on/two days off pattern.

After 4x LA: 3, 4, 8, 9 June
After 4x Montreal: 20, 21 June (could be used for Chicago rather than Montreal)
After 4x Chicago: 2, 3 July (could be used for Toronto rather than Chicago)
After 6x NYC: 30, 31 July
After 2x Barcelona: 9, 10 October (the first two shows have only gone on sale today, hence any extras not being added in this announcement)
After 2x Cologne: 21, 22 October
After 4x London: 2, 3 November

There is also, of course, room after 4x Paris but previous rumours suggested the total amount of shows there would be four. They could also keep going into August in NYC but rumours suggest the residency is limited to 18-31 July.

They could also squeeze in two more Berlin dates to bring its total to six if they were willing to have one rest period only a day long rather than two days long.

You might want to change NY's 2 to 4.

True, true. But you get the point anyway. Everybody knew beforehand there would be extra shows.



What intrigues me, though, is that ALL shows are in pairs back to back. With the added shows there's a couple day rest, but the new shows are again back to back. There has to be something going on with that. One date innocence, one date experience?

I really wish they would announce Dublin already, even just the dates.

And how different, if it all will the second pair of Innocence and Experience dates be to the others?

Yes exactly that. It really has me wondering what they are planning.

If they do 1 show with hits, 1 with rare songs, people will be pissed if they end up on the first night. Eh, I don't care as I'll probably go to all four anyway. It'll be interesting to see, as long as it won't be 1 night acoustic.
