A friend of mine was told by Joe O'Herlihy at the airport leaving NYC that Aus shows would be 2017. Hearing that burst my bubble.

Maybe they're going to use early 2016 to finish SOE. Shah... And monkeys might out of my butt!

Certainly sounds like SOMETHING changed with the internal decision making. Not ready to disregard all those 2016 rumors. I do think it's a stronger sign SOE will happen and that they want to wait until they have the "full show" before coming to Australia and New Zealand.

There are rumours about U2 in South America in November. Australia and NZ after SA?

What, November this year or next?
I have a feeling the Paris shows will end the year because surely we would have heard of something by now?

Amen! I remember when U2 forced their album into our iTunes accounts, forever stealing our innocence and raping our souls? Next week marks the 1 year anniversary of that dreadful (aka awesome) day,

I remember one of the band members saying that U2 would be touring South America in early 2016. However, AC/DC and the Rolling Stones are both going to be doing stadium tours in SA early next year (neither are "confirmed" yet, but it's well known in the fan communities that these shows are happening). Maybe U2 figured it was best to postpone their SA visit so as not to have to compete with two of their biggest competitors on the international touring circuit. Probably a good idea.

Hopefully if they plan on stretching this tour into 2017 they have another album. It'd be strange to still be touring in 2017 behind an album that came out in 2014. But, stranger things have happened...

Next year. Sorry, I'm already in 2016, I didn't even noticed that could indicate Nov/15,

I'm praying for Dublin next year. The only dates I can't make it are in late December.

So, supposing U2 releases SoE, they're going back do US/Europe, then moving the tour outdoors and going to Latin America/Australia/NZ/Japan and others ?

Yes, the first semester of 2016 is incredible busy: Rumoured Coldplay and Rolling Stones, and confirmed: Maroon 5, Lollapalloza festival, and a bunch of others minor acts as well. I highly doubt U2 here in early 2016

2017 seems a bit ridiculous. I remember during 360 there were rumours that they would play in Oz in 2011, however as we all know they came in late 2010 so fingers crossed.

I've always maintained though that they would come around March/April 2016. It's only a wild guess here, but hopefully Joe O'Herlihy said 2017 as a precaution. The whole 'Bono nearly dying' event last year may have made them just want to play out 2015 and see how the group and mainly Bono is holding up. Personally I could forgo another album if it means them touring next year.
