Well, at least there's going to be more than 1 show at the UC! Thanks for the info, Blue Room.

NOT good.

How am I going to make it back from Montreal to Hamilton in time to get into the GA lineup?? That's like a 7 hour drive.

Crappola. Have to go check out the train schedules.

Something about these dates and cities doesn't seem right...they're leaving out the entire Northwest and Southeast? To me, that just doesn't make sense...they're ignoring huge sections of the country! I'm not sure how much I believe all this......

What about Tulsa or Oklahoma City? It's not like it's too hard to book these arenas! If this IS the tour schedule then I am disappointed to only see 14 cities or 6 regions represented. Austin is the closest for me, but that still an 8 hour drive. Maybe I should move to the crime capitals of the nation (L.A., New York, Salt Lake City (just kidding)) and then maybe U2 will come through...

Urrrghhhh!

I wouldn't say that ALL hope is lost for Kansas City, St. Louis, Nashville etc...

They have said 25 dates would be added, and even if you add in multi night stands on the east and west coasts you still gotta believe there will be more dates to come...

Am I off in thinking this?

I agree, there are some very large geographic areas not represented. Damn. No southeast dates is crazy. No St. Louis or KC sucks too.

They could make a lot of people happy if they add only four dates.

1. St Louis or KC
2. Nashville
3. Tampa or Orlando
4. New Orleans

Being from Tampa, the closet show is probably Austin or Indiana, that something like 16 to 20 hours away. Damn.

Even adding two of these four would do the trick for me. Fingers crossed.

Zoocoustic, I would believe it. U2 thinks they have met most of the market demand in the Northwest as they played 3 shows in that region and two had a tough time selling out. So that would be my guess as to why they are not going there.

As far as the southeast. They have never really had much of a market there other than maybe Atlanta. Look at shows in those areas on The Outside Broadcast and Popmart. Columbia, SC 1992(lowest attendence of that leg), Memphis Popmart 1/2 empty, Clemson Popmart 2/3's empty, Tampa Popmart 2/3's empty, Jacksonville 1/2 empty, New Orleans 1/2 empty.

The southeast has had some of the weakest ticket sales on most of their tours. I wouldnt give up on Nashville, St Louis or KC just yet. I think a show will be scheduled in at least one of those cities. Otherwise this schedule is accurate, trust me.

AAAAHHHHHH! I am seriously going to cry. I've had $100 sitting in a jar since last October, hoping they will come to KC or St. Louis. It just seems really odd to me that they wouldn't. I did a little research and U2 has come to KC on EVERY tour except Elevation. AAHHHH. I have never seen U2 live, and it's looking like I'm never going to.

Don't panic. I wouldn't get worked up about these dates. They aren't official and the word from U2 was that there will be 25 new dates. Only 15 are listed. Relax until the official word comes out. Should be any day now. There will be plenty of time to panic later on while trying to get tickets since it is unlikely that Prop will be able to offer tickets because of the short time between the announcement and the first date (I hope I'm wrong about that)

10/22 - Rangers

10/25 - Knicks
10/26 - Richard Nader's Rock n' Roll Revival
10/27 - 10/28 - Original NYC Pet Show
10/29 - Rangers

MSG is clear for U2 from Oct. 24 - 28.

10/25 Knicks vs Nets in Albany, NY
10/26 Rock n' Roll Revival is at the MSG Theatre. That's not MSG
10/27 - 10/28 The pet show is at the MSG Exposition Center. That's not MSG either.

Well Danno-
If this IS the schedule, then you can hang me if you like. We tried, but I bet Paul McGuinness probably made a point to stay the HELL away from the likes of here after our encounter in Atlanta.

To most concert promoters, scheduling Providence is pretty much like scheduling in the Boston market. (Not the chicken restaurant )

I've bought enough tickets on this tour to support the southeast all by myself!

OK I'm just kidding...

Providence will become another Slane-like fiasco, you will have people from 3 states in the center of a fan stronghold trying to get tickets to one night.

I hope people who have seen like 6 shows decide against trying for a ticket.

I am happy with the dates and shows. Somewhat ecstatic about L.A. being the final show of the Elevation Tour. However, I am worried that Prop wont offer tix and that I wont be able to see them in Vegas or L.A. or Oakland. Oh well, here goes the anxiety again and the waiting...
