Vertigo Tour: What's in a Name?

Vertigo tour, eh? I dunno if i'm sold on that one. I mean that's 2 straight tours with song titles at the head. Haven't had that since . . . wait, we've never had that. I hope that this tour isn't what it's hyped up to be so far.

I think it's rather bland, especially following the Elevation Tour, but remember that in the eighties, we had this very creative succession of tours: Boy, October, Pre-War, War, Unforgettable Fire. Joshua Tree. Lovetown broke that pattern.

Wow. That must be record time on complaining. From news, to whines, in minutes. U2 fans.

Geez, no one hear likes anything that U2 announces.

I think some people here need anti-depressants.

The name isn't half as cool as "Zoo TV," but oh well -- I still can't wait for it to start!

honestly, I don't care what the tour is called... but let's just say that finding out that it's called the "Vertigo Tour" was a little... anti-climactic

hahaha, sorry about my "complaining. i dont mean to bug ya. i'm just super excited about the new tour (finally) and that was the first thing that came to my mind that was worth talking about.


And, yes, ZooTV is the best tour name ever

As usual, with U2, once you get into the arena, see the setup, feel the vibe of the crowd, and then see the show you will then understand the meaning and theme behind the name.

Patience Luke, patience...

I don't like the title. I'm sure it took all of thirty seconds to come up with, but I agree with korczykp - the tour title doesn't bother me too much. I'll be wearing my Vertigo tour t-shirts (x5) with pride

Perhaps this means Vertigo will defnitely be the opener, if they follow form of the last tour.

It's a poor choice in my opinion. Very bland, and very obvious.
I wasn't keen on The Elevation Tour as a title - but didnt whine about it...

Could there be a little lack of enthusiasm from the boys?

It could be a theme. According to the goss the stage will be a circular target thingie. That would be cool.

I actually like the tour name Vertigo, but then no one likes what I like

i've heard rumours of a rotating stage, which, if it malfunctions in teh style of the Lemon, could be very amusing...
