Announcement from stage Dec 4th 7am est
 
So they’ve posted that they will make an announcement to the world live from the stage in Japan. Any thoughts? Seems pretty big for new song or dvd. Retirement or something new? Reckon it’s 50/50.

Retirement from touring.

It would be kind of tacky to tease your retirement.

Also, Tokyo isn’t even the last stop on this tour, so why make a retirement announcement before Mumbai? Or any announcement, for that matter?

It looks like an announcement of something new.
A new album would be great, maybe an EP.

I won't completely dismiss the possibility of it being retirement from touring, but I think that's unlikely. Why announce that in the middle of a show, deflating the crowd?

Spun2U 12-03-2019 08:16 PM

This would be a great time to retire at least from touring now that they've finally toured areas of the world for the first time!

Who knows, maybe this was on the bucket list to tours southeast Asia and then hang it up. Just speculating. We'll know soon enough.

Of course they could be announcing a new leg of the JT in North America. :D

Don't see how it can be anything related to new music. We'd know about that. This band doesn't make an album (or EP) in secret.

You don't announce a DVD / Blu Ray release during a concert.

Aside from retirement (either touring or all together), realistically what else could it be?

Achtung Baby 30th anniversary tour in 2021?

You seriously think that's realistic?

This is the pic related to the announcement, it won’t be a retirement with a new logo.

Spun2U 12-03-2019 08:29 PM

This doesn't feel like a new anything announcement to me. If they where to announce a end to touring (or U2 in general) can you imagine being at the last few shows??? Wow.

AndrewCowley 12-03-2019 08:30 PM

Odd picture.

bono_man2002 12-03-2019 08:35 PM

The Drifting Cowboys new album & 2020 tour.

prbiker15 12-03-2019 08:36 PM

A strange time and place to make an announcement as they will be wrapping up the Joshua Tree portion of the show by that time. :hmm:

Spun2U 12-03-2019 08:47 PM

Or they could be announcing this:

How about a Conversations With Nick Cave-style tour.

TinKnight 12-03-2019 10:07 PM

Absolutely no way it's them retiring from touring. It's not even the end of this tour and if any band was going to have a pompous, self-aggrandizing farewell tour, it's this one.

If I had to bet on something, it'd be announcement of them working on new music. Sure, there's allegedly been demos and miscellaneous comments on the band working on new material, but I don't think there'd actually be anything ready to go or be comfortable making a release date.

DaveC 12-03-2019 10:10 PM

my guess is they're announcing some new charity thing.

I don't think a general "we're working on new material" statement would constitute "news" worthy of an announcement though.

Especially given their history of delays, not keeping to schedule, producer swapping, endless tweaking etc...
