Bad News for the European Fans!!

Girls!! It looks like U2 has cancelled their summer tour!!

http://forum.interference.com/u2feed...ML/018489.html

I am soooooooo sorry everyone. It sucks that we got spoiled by U2 over here in Europe, and now you guys have to be let down. Hopefully they will start the next tour in Europe.

I am glad to hear that they are taking a rest though. They have worked so hard and deserve a break. Also, now they can totally focus on the new album. It is going to be a good one !!

Guess we'll have to wait and see what U2 does.

I bet the Europeans will get a summer tour though.

My thoughts exactly. Actually, if I'm sorry for anyone it's the Australian, South-American, African and Asian fans.

I guess they need to take some time off, but still....

it┤s very sad. Hopefully they┤ll use the time to make a new album and Adam will find time to get married and pass on his genes!!!

I'm disappointed for our Euro-PLEBAns & friends; I know how I would feel if I had been looking forward to it & counting on it.

BUT... I think they do need a break *cough-finish-new-album* & then who knows what surprises they may have in store later. They could be planning something really great to totally make up for cancelling the summer tour.
I know, I'm hopelessly optimistic!
I never learn.

I refuse to believe this until someone in or close to the band says it in an interwiew or something.....

I really don┤t think that Bono would state that they WERE touring if he had even the slightest doubt because he knows it would crush the fans!

But whatever they decide I will see the sooner or later even if I have to go back to the US!

apparently it is on U2.com now. Don't know if it gets much more official than that.

Hey I guess it's true.... at least for now.


From u2.com:

Stories have been swirling round the net for some time about possible dates in 2002 but contrary to current rumours there'll be no U2 dates this summer.

If U2 have any tour dates to announce in the future you can be sure U2.Com will bring them to you as soon as they are officially confirmed.



I feel bad for all the countries that they didn't get to.... but I also think they need a little break from it all....

When I heard they weren't releasing the album soon, I had a feeling the plans would fall apart. This sucks. Rest is good, but still, this sucks.

Why am I not surprised anymore?
sure, fine, I think they deserve a break and hell yeah do I want a new album!! I just can't see why they couldn't have split their touring into other parts of the world but no they decided to 'favourize'(word??) the U.S. completely instead for some unknown reason, and now they're so tired that they can't tour for a while.

I just think that with all the stuff they have been doing recently (Super Bowl, Grammies, et al), they need a break. They seem to be everywhere; hence the kinda sorta backlash. This will also give them the opportunity to make new music (if they so chose).

I'm wasn't saying that I'm happy that they are not touring, I do feel bad that there won't be a European Tour. I know everyone was looking foward to it.

I dunno, maybe I'm just eager to hear new stuff from them.

they have hardly been in the news over here the last few months

I do agree though that a new album is more preferable

I agree even more with U2freak though

Great points Daisy...along with being great musicians they are also very smart businessmen and they know when they are being over-exposed. We as dedicated fans can never get too much of them but not everyone feels that way. If I wasn't a fan, I would probably be really sick of seeing them everywhere by now.

They have also hinted at being behind schedule on the new album because of Bono's travels so maybe they want to focus on that right now.

Don't forget that the Elevation tour was originaly supposed to be 3 months long and it stretched out for what, almost 2 years? Bono, Edge and Larry all have kids under 3 years old who need their daddy's to be home more, not to mention their wives/significant others who probably will appreciate a long holiday. Who knows, maybe it will result in another U2 baby boom!

Europe is still a great destination. I plan on going back in the fall regardless.

I'm still going to Europe too. It will probably be more relaxed now anyway, since I won't have to worry about scoring u2 tickets. I can just really take the time to enjoy myself!

Can't wait to see Ireland finally!
