I don't speak Spanish but i'll go with trying to guess the essence:

It mentions U2 playing at the Grammys and the rumored U2 performance at Rock in Rio 2003.

It says U2 will go to Europe and re-visit Sarajevo this summer.

Unfortunately, i don't understand what it says about the new album - only that lots is speculated about it - and that new Best of 1991-2001 is coming in November.

Ya know, its still confusing. Rock in I Laugh? Hoarded many prizes? American soccer? First semester-- is the band still in school?

Ahhh....the pitfalls of online translators. But thanks for the help on that one. I think. Maybe I should translate this in to French and see if I really am thankful....

I believe it is talking about Rock in Rio 2003 as one of upcoming Latin/South American shows. It mentions that after the Superbowl the band will go back to the studio to record the new album. It goes on to say that not much is known about it and it is speculated to be released in a few months. The Best of 1991-2001 is in the works and is expected in November of this year. Thats basically all it talks about.

My full translation is:

U2's Plans Include Shows and a New Album

Buenos Aires February 4th

The Irish band began the year with 8 Gramy nominations. In addition, Bono and his mates plan a compilation disc along with another album with new songs and there are rumors that they will appear at Rock in Rio in 2003.

During 2001 U2 was hard at work. They dominated the award show scene with many awards, completed a large tour and got involved in the fight for the rights of poor countries (with Bono leading), but for the fans of Latin America something was missing: to bring their new album to Latin America. On this topic, there was a lot of talk.

Such as in March of last year, when the band was going to start their Elevation Tour, Argentina Universal assured that they were going to be in Buenos Aires during the first quarter of the year.

But, now this has been forgotten(note: presumably because of the economic crisis). U2's fans in Latin America are not tiring in their fight to bring them here. For months, while the band was touring Europe, they called out to their peers so that they could collect signatures. They were able to bring this request to U2's offices, but they still haven't received a response.

And Latin America? The daily newspaper O Globo of Brazil says that U2 could appear as one of the main attractions of the Rock in Rio festival in Jan. 2003. One will have to wait. On the official U2 site there is no information regarding any shows in Latin America.

Until now, the only plans of the Irish band is to play at the Superbowl in February. From there on, they will be working on what could be their new album.

Regarding this album there is little information and a lot of speculation. It's been heard that it will be launched in a few months. Also, it's said they are planning The Best of 1991 - 2001 for November.

Regarding the new tour, Bono told the daily English newspaper the Sun that they donn't want to do something extensive, but rather" it would only be a little fun for a few weeks". Furthermore, the band wants to return to Europe and visit Sarajevo again, like in 1997. Soon, there will be news.

Orignal Spanish follows:

Los planes de U2 incluyen shows y nuevo álbum
La banda irlandesa comenzó el año con ocho nominaciones para los premios Grammy. Además Bono y los suyos planean un disco recopilatorio y otro con nuevas canciones. Y se rumorea que estarán en el Rock in Río del 2003.

El año 2001 encontró a los U2 en plena actividad. Acapararon muchos premios del mercado discográfico, realizaron una larga gira y se mezclaron en la lucha por los derechos de los países pobres (con Bono a la cabeza), pero para los fans de estas latitudes les faltó algo: venir a presentar su disco a Latinoamérica. De eso se habló mucho.

Incluso en marzo del año pasado, cuando la banda iba a iniciar la Elevation Tour, Universal Argentina aseguró que iban a estar en Buenos Aires en el primer semestre de este año.

Pero ahora eso quedó en el olvido. Sus fans en América Latina no se cansan en su lucha por traerlos. Hace meses, cuando la banda giraba por Europa, realizaron un llamado a sus pares para que junten firmas. Lograron llevar la solicitud a las oficinas de U2, pero hasta el momento no lo lograron.

¿Y Latinoamérica? El diario O Globo de Brasil dice que U2 podría presentarse como una de las atracciones principales del próximo festival Rock in Río que se inicia el 17 de enero de 2003. Habrá que esperar. En el site oficial de U2 nada se dice de próximos shows por Latinoamérica.

Hasta el momento el único plan de los irlandeses es tocar en el Superbowl (la final del fútbol americano) en febrero. De ahí en mas estarán trabajando en lo que podría ser su nuevo disco.

Un álbum del que poco y nada se sabe y mucho se especula. Se dice que será lanzado en pocos meses. También se afirma que está planeado un The Best 1991 - 2001 para noviembre.

En cuanto a la nueva gira, Bono afirmó recientemente al diario inglés The Sun que no quiere hacer algo extenso, si no que "sólo sería un poco de diversión durante algunas semanas". Además, la banda quiere volver a Europa y visitar nuevamente Sarajevo, como en 1997. Pronto habrá novedades.
