Brasil has the HSBC Arena, for almost 18.000 people (Just in RIO), and we in Chile have the Movistar Arena, for almost the same amount of people.

Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay have nothing.
So we're kinda screwed in an arena format.

I heard there were plans for an arena in Uruguay and Argentina, but they'll never be on time for the end of 2016 or beggining of 2017, the time frame when U2 should be here (from what I know)

Buenos Aires has Luna Park - lower capacity (9,000) but an iconic arena. Cordoba has the Superdomo (14,000 - built 2002). Peru has the Coliseo Polideportivo in Lima (12,000 seater - built 2011) or the Coloseo (20,000), Ecuador has the Coliseo General Rumiñahui in Quito (16,000 seater - built 1996) and Colombia has arenas in Bogota (El Campín - 26,000) and Cali (Coliseo El Pueblo - 18,000). Brazil has quite a few now.

You could cobble together a fairly decent arena tour in South America - but would U2 bother?

Soooo it's been over two weeks since the rumour that an announcement was imminent and we've heard nothing new at all. Maybe it was just speculation?

I noticed Ticketek removed U2 from the 'Waitlist Now' section on their main page again. Probably doesn't mean anything.

Like I said earlier, don't expect any news of any kind until after New York gigs. 2nd week of August at the earliest.

The original Vertigo tour dates scheduled for March 2006 weren't announced till November 2005. So there's plenty of time.

i spoke to 2 senior crew members at MSG 8 who both told me that Australia was 2017
Next year would be USA again anytime from july onwards. no mention of South America either yet.
i heard fom someone else who said Dallas told them australia 2916 so who knows !

Knowing Edge, he doesn't want to be tied down finishing Songs of Experience with only a few months , which it would be with an OZ tour in March. we heard a tour announcement in March is likely but again no proof of anything. Just stating what i've heard.
I was already planning my flights down for march

Well at least we'll skip the "trying out new songs" shitty midpoint of the tour.

Flicking through the TV, I just noticed a 2 hour special on the making of Actung Baby is now on Double J's the J Files for anyone that's keen. Is this some more unusually high U2 traffic? Yeah, I'm dreaming, there will be no Aussie tour announcement. But I so want it to be true!

Listened to that the other night. They play the Achtung album in full interspersed with snippets from people like Lillywhite and Lanois and from band members
