Hmmm.....this will be fun.

1st single: January, 2004. Middle of the month. U2 will then go play it on Letterman, Leno, MTV, Top of Pops, BBC, etc. I also think it will be "All because of you". Bono talks this one up a lot.

Album release:// Mar.1 (WORLD) / Mar.2 (USA). U2 will go play 2 songs on SNL on Sat, March 6th. Album will have no competition, and go to #1.

Tracklist:

1. All because of you
2. Xanax and wine
3. Native son
4. One step closer to knowing
5. Tough
6. *Song we've not heard of*
7. You can't give your heart away
8. Bulldozer
9. *Song we've not heard of*
10. Original of the species
11. Jahweh (aka the God song...word has it Bono called it this)
12. Sometimes you can't make it on your own

*When the album comes out, there are always a few songs that we've never even heard mention of.

Tour announcement: Late February. Tickets will go on sale on March 6th, to coincide with the hype all the promotion has created.

Tour will begin on Fri, May 14th at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, and then go to the St. Pete-Times Forum in Tampa two days later on the 16th. Atlanta will be on the 17th.

The single will be released on my birthday Feb 19th and it will be called "Happy Birthday Peter"

The album will be released on March 24th on my brothers b/d and will be called "Happy birthday Paul"

The only song names on the list that I can see being U2 song names are Native Son and The Sun The Moon and The Stars the other names I doubt will be U2 song names.

Oh yeagh the tour will begin onmy parents anniversary April 15th.

I hate to say this, but you're wrong, EvolutionMonkey. The first single will actually come out on MY birthday, January 17, and be called "A Tribute To Andre". The CD, titled "For Andre, The U2 Fanlad From U2 Fanland", will come out on the same day, and, to kickstart their worldwide "You All Know U2 Is The Best Band Ever" Tour, they'll play a concert in my city on my birthday, and I'll get to be in the front row and go on stage and everything.

I like the sound of that. Greatly so.

I don't agree with any of your track listings because "Full Metal Jacket" will be a stand-out song on the album.

gherman, I was under the assumption that "Full Metal Jacket", an almost obvious provsional title has turned into "Native Son".

This was according to Ignoreland, who seems to be reputable.

First of all, it is not wise to tour South American and Australia in July. That's their winter.

But anyway, an album in 2004 and 2005 would be an incredible thing. But it won't happen. Expect the "follow up" in 2007, With a massive 2008 tour.

I really like the suggestion of the title "Plateau" that is a really u2ish word to me. Could you just picture an overhead view of Bono and the boys standing on a Plateau wandering around looking for "The Edge" haha.
