Is this the end for a while?

Have this feeling that this will be it for touring and new u2 content for some time and perhaps indefinitely.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if ‘little things’ makes an appearance finally on the tour to end the tour ... ‘the end is here sometimes’

Hope I’m wrong.

I’d say yes until at least 2021/22.

PS. Fucking great era. Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience definitely rank near the top of their albums outside of 84-97.

At this point, I have my doubts that they’ll do another album/tour cycle. It’ll either be the album or the tour, and it will be the last one. But that’s just my opinion.

2019 will most likely be a very quiet year. By their standards, they’ve been on overdrive for the past 5 years. It’s been a great time to be a fan and they deserve a break.

However, I’m worried that if they’re gone for too long, they’ll call it a day. Hope I’m wrong as well.

Break until 2021 when AB30 tour comes.

Folowed by stadium tour of SOA, back with Eno/Lanois producing.

I would bet every thing that I own in this world that they will never work with, let alone speak to, Brian Eno or Daniel Lanois ever again.

But sure, Songs of Assent. Thirteen years after the thought bubble was first floated, why not.

I think health is the only factor that would completely stop them from making new music and touring.

Well there's evidence Bono's been kicking around the idea of Songs of Innocence since the late 80's early 90's, so anything is possible.

In order to negate some of the wear and tear/old age I think they should do a very stripped back show in terms of set up and play far fewer dates - maybe 1 date per country (or for UK and Ireland - one show on each Island).

For a certain song on the Experience tour I felt a huge increase in energy as they clearly wanted to get that song right - so whether they can do this for 20+ songs in a show - who knows- probably not. But doing less shows overall can only help - with longer breaks in between.

I’ll be celebrating and drinking like it’s my last gig in Belfast Saturday I know that :-)

Whether it’s their last or not, one things for sure is they will be gone for a long while, I wouldn’t expect to see them again until after theve turned 60

Can you (or someone else) fill me in on that? Didn't realise things had cooled so much. Thought Brian Eno was at the show last night or may have misheard/misunderstood what bono was saying on stage.

I wouldn't mind seeing a 30 year anniversary tour for Achtung Baby. Maybe showing all of the leaps we've taken from the TV-era to the digital age we're in now.

Starting on November 14th, I believe U2 will basically cease to exist for all of 2019. Maybe some light work on new songs.

I believe there will be some kind of acknowledgement of Boy’s 40th anniversary in 2020, maybe a few performances, maybe not.

Work on a new album won’t seriously begin until 2020. A fall 2021 album will be rumored, but get pushed into 2022, because U2.

I could go either way on the AB30 Tour. If they do it, I’ll definitely go. To not do it would essentially be to leave money on the table.

After doing JT30, they must absolutely do AB30.
