we don't.

There are a lot of people who fear there will be no Dublin date this year - probably because Bono stated in an interview with TodayFM that the 3Arena was not big enough to house the show - as this is the biggest indoor arena in Ireland (never mind Dublin) it does cause a big problem for a December concert with regards to the venue - an outdoor space maybe utilised but this defeats the object of the intimacy that the rest of the world has enjoyed with this tour so far - it will be interesting to see how or if they sort this problem out?

It's a pain not knowing about the Dublin dates, I'm considering doing Turin or another venue if there aren't any this year.

right now the arena is free Nov 21-30, 10 days worth.........guess we'll find out at some point if U2 will take those days.

 

People keep mentioning in various threads the number of days the band might play vs. the number of days the arena(s) are currently available in a row, but the thing to keep in mind (at least based on the US tour), they play two days on, two days off. Not every night... May have to break it down, let someone else play, then set it up again, etc.

Nevermind Dublin & the 3 Arena if they are really wanting to go back to their 'Innocence'  tour the country starting with the National Opera House in Wexford !!!  If you're reading lads I bags the first ticket for coming up with the idea!

Great thread. I've been analyzing and predicting performance dates in Dublin since 360 ended. 

My hunch - 3 days within the last 2 weeks of December 3Arena BUT not an official IE concert. Perhaps a Music Generations concert featuring U2. Perhaps donors for the organization having first dibs to tickets, then tickets being available to the public.

So a donor only set of shows.

 

Which means an even weaker setlist than i+e Toronto!

Nobody knows.

 

Presumably its just a logistical issue they wanted to play indoor this year but there isn't a suitable door venue in Dublin (see above) for the I&E stage set up. They could play a standard show but again it's if they could play enough nights to likely meet demand...

 

My guess is Dublin will be the first announcement for the likely stadium shows next year, 3 nights at Croke or Avivia. 

 

Which would tie in with this article from a good while ago: http://www.atu2.com/news/irish-concert-promoter-says-u2-in-talks-to-play-croke-park-in-2016.html
