I wonder if we'll see some warm up shows before Vancouver?

Virtually certain it's generally a repeat of the 2015 tour rehearsals. We already know about the dress rehearsal connected to a contest.

Soccer schedule came out today and the Vancouver team is away from BC Place April 12 to May 20th.

I'm thinking more song the lines of club shows like Man Ray or Irving Plaza. Or at least a Fallon appearance?

JT car karaoke with James Corden. Even if it's only Bono/Edge.

Best bet for getting the most viral mileage out of 10 minutes of tv time. If they really want to make it interesting, have Bono in the driver's seat!!!

Better than the bike sketch or subway surprise on Fallon.

This!!

What was the history to this anyway, did they ever get asked where the extra lyrics came from? Did they exist in the studio or were they added on tour? I've always thought the live performance of the song should have them and have been gutted any time I've seen them live and they've not used them.

I think that would depend on how the ticket sales go next week.

If everything self out fairly quickly, what's the point of a promotional tour? They're not selling anything.

If they're going to do the late night circuit in the US, I'd prefer someone who can conduct a proper interview and get into the politics of the album and how it relates to today, as opposed to somebody who's simply going to giggle and fawn.

Will he breathe new life into some of the more tired warhorses vocally (WOWY being the prime example)?

On that note, will the band try to keep the arrangements original or re-work them?

Most importantly...will Bono be able to sing RHMT decently? Let's all hope they don't get lazy and try to strip it down...
No. Remember Vertigo era Bono trying to sing SBS in the original key during tour rehearsals and what happened.

That said, no reason why he couldn't try to get some new life into the songs (looking at you WOWY of the past few tours...).

Arrangements will I imagine stay close to originals. Perhaps a song or two acoustic if they feel like full band arrangement isn't working ?

Yes, I believe so...proper key arrangements will help.

My dream is they do a Kimmel outdoor concert and shut down Hollywood Blvd.

My dream is they do their own thing live streamed on YouTube/FB cutting out the middle man BS. Preferably during the inauguration.

To really get a young audience for the upcoming Joshua Tree tour, U2 need to appear on UK's Old Grey Whistle Test TV program, get a Time magazine "rock's hottest ticket" cover story and have Bono film himself buying a new cowboy hat.

Aren't there about 8 or so upcoming shows in US states that voted Trump? Half of which having shows that failed to sellout in the past?

I also wonder if Bono has already kissed the next 4 years of ONE funding/debt relief from the US goodbye. I bet that question is an upcoming interview ground rule no-no. Why there is no show in Arizona being another no-no question.
