So who knows what the future holds, we're in new territory.
Well said.

Here's what I think (because obviously everyone comes here to read what I think):

There will be no album until 2004. And we should consider ourselves lucky if it comes out in the first third of 2004 because we all know that they have their extracurricular saving-the-world activities and families. They are also world-class procrastinators, as well as world-class pains in the ass when it comes to laying down the "perfect track."

They have been saying since ZooTV that [place name of tour here] will be the last big one. And then they go and rock again...and again...and again. Bono does have his voice to worry about. He's had problems for awhile now, and it truly WILL be their last tour if they overdo it.

But really, I don't see them running completely out of steam for a long time now. There will probably always be something creative flowing out of them, as either a unit or various fractions of that unit.

Weeks ago when we first heard about the possibility of a new album and tour, I knew it wouldn't be out any earlier than 2004. That's just what they do! If they announce a general time frame, go forward 3-4 months and that's the more likely date.

As for 2004 being the last big year for U2...No way!

Basically it boils down to fact that there seems to be 2 types of time...real time and U2 time. Unfortunately U2 time runs a little slower.

Well, they didn't play in Australia last time because the economy just wasn't good enough. I guess that when they took Popmart to Australia in 1998, they had to ask very high ticket prices just to bring the show to the continent. Which led to unsold seats at some of the stops. How is Australia's economy now? Recovering? Because if they do an arena tour again, and Australia is doing a bit better, then they could probably come there with a smaller production.

Here's hoping that all you South American/Australian/New Zealand/Japanese/Chinese/Indian/Thai/Mexican/African fans get to see U2 on the next tour!!

i'm not a big follower of economy, but today i heard its's supposed to be good.

most of our arena's arent that big ( i think), the Rod Laver Arena in melbourne holds about 16,000

how many seats do some arenas over in the US have?

U2 is known as a 'live' band. I can't imagine them stopping touring.

Actually saw this on the Rolling Stones website, talking about the Australian arenas they'll play. Combine that with what I already know about Australian arenas, here's what I came up with.

Sydney- Super Dome (20,000)
Melbourne- Rod Laver Arena (16,000)
Brisbane- Entertainment Center (13,000)
Adelaide- Entertainment Center (10,000? Have a friend who saw a concert here, and that was his guess.)
Perth- Burswood Dome (18,000- they had to fit Popmart in here!)

Most US arenas are around the same size as these Australian ones, but have names like National Car Rental Arena, or Continental Airlines Arena. Terrible corporate takeover!

So they'd have the right venues....just would everything be able to come together? I hope so for your sake.

i've heard this from fans of several bands, that it sucks cuz it's so expensive to tour there. i wonder why? i wouldn't think it'd be any more expensive than flying to any other country.
