    Japanese Shows?

    Thanks very much for the information. Good to know, & all sounds positive. Looks like it's probably going to be a couple of shows at Saitama Super Arena. I'm not sure, but would guess that tickets will be sold by Pia.

    I was stuck listening to Triple M from 6am onwards, waiting for an announcement. Gave up when my ears started bleeding after hearing Phil Collins.

    Surely not 😂 This is getting a bit crazy, with all these delays, but hopefully we'll know something soon.

    A friend who has a contact involved in the tour has said that it will indeed be visiting the SCG in Sydney. Very unexpected, as it'll be in the cricket season, & it's capacity is only 48,000. But welcome news. This venue is much more convenient for tourists wanting to see the show, & the city. Though, as it's a cricket ground (large oval field), anyone in seats will be much further away than they'd be at a rectangular football field.

    Yeah, I'm hoping for substantial changes from what we saw in 2017. I'd like it all to feel new & fresh, which might be difficult with the stage design (I was hoping for a redesigned b-stage for Lovetown30). I hope quite a few SoI/SoE songs make the cut. Acrobat & The Blackout are both monster tunes, as is Exit! It would be awesome if they're all played. Blackout with that giant screen could be killer!

    Before the webpages were pulled, Ticketmaster was even sending my newsfeed ads about buying U2 tickets. Somebody is going to get raked over the coals for the leak (unless it was all strategically leaked on purpose). 😂

    I never said that you implied any such thing. You mentioned that the u2start post included TENTATIVE dates, which was good. I just highlighted the fact that the u2start post appeared to have errors, so it would be unwise to book anything (non-refundable of course).

    Who's being skeptical? Have you read my posts? I started a thread about the Japan tour. I've been posting about the tour on u2start, & have an acquaintance who works on the tours. I was saying don't book stuff until it's announced. I'd expect the above post being referenced on u2start has errors, which I was highlighting. You're more than welcome to book a hotel near the SCG, a long, long way from where U2 will actually be playing in Sydney 😜 Another hint, look at the TENTATIVE dates from the post on U2start that you're mentioning. The Perth dates don't add up, 3 free days before Perth, one free day after Perth (unlikely).

    That post was made by a new user on U2start, so take it with a grain of salt, & don't book anything that is non-refundable. The itinerary looks just about right, but there are errors. The Sydney concerts will almost certainly be at ANZ stadium (not the SCG), as a planned refurbishment of ANZ has been delayed until at least 2020. ANZ is Sydney's preferred large concert venue, Metallica is booked to play there in October 2019, Queen February 2020. Remy believes there's at least one other error in the post. Edit: it's now all up on Ticketmaster NZ!

    The rumoured Monday announcement turned out to be for Queen. So there probably won't be an announcement for a while yet.

    Could finally do an innocent night & an experience night. Won't happen of course.

    Japanese Shows?

    Sure. I'll post it here. No disrespect to u2.com & Zootopia, but at this stage the best places to hear news of tour rumours are U2songs & u2start. https://www.u2songs.com/news/rumours_nz_australia_asia_u2_tour_in_2019 https://u2start.com/topic/11662/0/12/

    Japanese Shows?

    With all these tour rumours floating about, & an official announcement likely to be imminent, I'm starting to dream about seeing a U2 show in distant lands. I've never been to Japan, but would love to visit there. A U2 show or two would top it off! Problem is, it looks quite difficult for foreigners (especially those that don't speak Japanese) to purchase concert tickets. Having a scan around on google, it looks like it's often the case that Japanese ticket sites will not accept foreign credit cards. They often won't send tickets overseas & don't have e-tickets (hoping they at least do will call). I'm hoping that, for an international act of U2's size, things could be different. Is there anyone here, who went to the Vertigo tour in Japan, who could chime in, with information about the ticket purchasing process in Japan? Maybe a stretch, as the tour 13 years ago, but you never know! Or any help from Japanese locals, or anyone else who attends concerts in Japan. Obviously, as soon as dates are announced, we'll have presales in only a few days. So things will get hectic! So any help be greatly appreciated.
