A lot of speculation about a new world tour in June has circulated the Internet since Paul McGuinness' quote was published in The Irish Times interview looking back at his career managing U2.
"Today, sales of the new U2 album, which is due out in March, no longer really matter much. Sales of tickets for their world tour, which is due to begin in June, really do."
Reeve Carney (Bono’s Spiderman), who was playing in Ireland last week at The Workman’s Inn twitted that he was listening to amazing new music being recorded by a very famous Irish band. It is well known to the public of his friendship with the U2 band members and Reeve reportedly spent over a month in Ireland previously to his performance. Off course that generated rumors that He was indeed referring to U2’s New Album.
All U2 fans are anxious for a new world tour and especially Irish fans, who are hopping that more than 3 dates are going to be in the Agenda. It is always extra special to listen to the band playing in their home country. Although more often than not, Bono has no chance to sing to the Irish Public, since the Irish audiences have the habit to sing to the performers instead of hearing them sing.
On the end of March we will be interviewing Gavin Friday (Bono’s best friend), Virgin Prunes front man about his music and career and if we can we will sneak a question on the world tour rumors in…
That will be a very interesting piece, do not miss out! Publishing date to be announced soon!
It is fuelled by this passion for music that flows through the Irish public that we at http://www.festivalandgigguide.ie will keep an ear to the ground to make sure we have all the details beforehand.
