possible dates

This was sent to me from atu2's forum; there are things in here I doubt but hey, that's why this is a rumor board. I do know it'll start at the American Airline Arena but that's all I do know, not even if they have two shows there. I didn't write these, I have no more answers for you.

Otto, this is all very exciting, interesting and a bit baffling.

I have an industry inside source, and I will be seeing him on Christmas and I will check these dates against his (which will be an official iternerary).

Thanks!

I thought I read somewhere that Providence, RI was getting a show on 4/5? Interesting take, I would be VERY surprised if its accurate.

Those Boston dates in March and April make sense because the Celtics are playing there on March 30. So March 29, 31 and April 1 work. And that's a Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for those of you keeping track.
And the date in Hartford is during my spring break. YES!
Also, those October Fleetcenter dates (1,3,4) could be pretty crazy, as the Red Sox host the Yankees on September 30, October 1 and 2.

Why isn't San antonio on there? They just built the sbc center
a couple of years ago and it's a great huge arena.

Why 2 dates in Denver? Its a small market. I do not see Baltimore, MD, Indianapolis, IN, Columbus, OH, Cincinnati, OH, Charleston ,SC, Nashville, TN, St. Louis, MO or Charlottle, NC, having any shows.

Yes cities like St. Louis can't attract enough people, enough though it was on the last tour.

San Diego getting 2 shows I do not think they deserve to get 2 shows as well as Denver.

The only date I am disappointed in is the Philly March 16 show. I have to work Slipknot.

I kind of doubt these dates are correct. I doubt the band would only do one show in Dallas on an arena tour. Dallas is one of the top 10 or top 15 markets in the country. If they do a stadium tour, one stop in Dallas would make sense.

The band could indeed change how the tour is done at the moment based on the massive album sales that are happening in markets all over the world. The band may decide on short 30 date tour this spring in the USA that only has single dates in many large markets in order to prepare the market for Stadiums later in the fall.

The band has both stadium and arena designs for the tour and could easily substitute either in any market they feel deserves it.

At this point anything could happen, but I would be surprised if they don't do some stadium shows in the USA given the massive popularity of the new album. This is U2's fastest selling album, ever, in the United States.

They have to have more than one show in Philly during the first leg - please let it be March 17 - that would be so awesome.

And those dates don't make sense to me for the same reason. What do you do with the stage on the night of the Celtics? Take it down and set it up again? I don't think so.... I still put money down on March 22-24 or they wait until April to do the Fleet.
