Latest word (yesterday) from a member of U2's touring personel is that they are definitely coming here for SOE but unsure of what month.

But arenas? Or some wacky JT/EI hybrid to use the JT stadium stage but play more of an EI show?

Didn't they switch between arenas and stadiums a few tours ago? Vertigo?

Though perhaps the more pertinent news here is that they've definitely got plans to tour for SOE next year. Sounds like no long delays between the JT30 tour and E+I tour.

Well, that wasn't elaborated. But at least it seems SOE and the tour will definitely hapen before too long...

Yeah, between legs on Vertigo (two North American arena legs, three stadium legs for Europe, Latin America, The Pacific), but they've already said EI is an arena show and won't go into stadiums.

I think the demand is still there enough that they will play stadiums (if kind of helps that they haven't been this far south for the better part of a decade)

So you can probably bank on a Nov/Dec 2018 or Feb/March 2019 if it's gonna be stadiums. However an Arena tour would throw that theory out the window, pretty much opening the door for any month of the year...aside from maybe January.

by the time U2 make it to Australia, they'll probably be playing leagues clubs. And RSLs.

I hope for arenas until I think how much it will cost to go to every show in Sydney/Melbourne.

Pretty sure the continuation of I+E was referred to by a band member in a recent interview as E+I, and the name just stuck.
