nikki1120']Zhivvy! how many shows is it for you now!!!??? I am SO jealous! (ok, happy for you too!)

This summer Paris will be my fourth and 3 for 360 last year - I'm normally happy with one or two each tour - but not this one lol!!! my bank account is not happy lol!

 

LOL . . . that was me during Vertigo, OUCH!!!  Europeans and Americans are sooooo lucky though as we ALWAYS get several legs of every tour!!!

 

I know we are so lucky - Although I do wish that there were some UK dates to save money on the flights and hotel costs etc... but not complaining it is my choice to go to these places and 4 shows in 5 weeks seeing the best band in the world cannot complain at all. But it has meant that I have had to pull out of the Cardiff half marathon frown.gif As i just cannot afford to do it all - the registration was fine but then needed to pay to get down there and then for the hotel for a couple nights it was all adding up so something had to go and it was the race before Bono lol!!! But I am now lookng for one to do in the new year instead as I was eally enjoying training for it.

I've always thought they'd end the tour in Ireland/UK, so maybe next year after N.A.? Hope that I'm right, lol. Too bad about the Cardiff run, but you know, there will be others and it's not like U2 tours all that often, so your priorities are correct imho!!!

Yes!! I think I remember reading somewhere that there would be a whole new show for us. I think it was Rolling Stone. I'll have to check.

Does that mean that I'll have to save and get over to America for another show?

I did read it on the Rolling Stone website:

It was at the very end. Here's what Bono says:

"We'll maybe have a new album – I think we probably will. So it's kind of wonderful. Those people are going to have tickets to a whole new show with new songs. It's going to be very exciting next year."

 

So, Zhiv, maybe you should save and come see a show over here.

Make that a Calif. show, Zhivvy so we will all have a chance to meet you (and you can stay at my house and help me drive everyone crazy with U2 talk, lol)!!!

 

Now, you know that Bono tends to go into overdrive making promises that don't always come true, lol (such enthusiasm, like a little kid!), but if I'm not mistaken Paul McG and maybe Adam have said similar things???? So, may really happen!!!

Thanks for the invite Janette - if i had the money would be over there in a flash - would be great, U2 shows and meeting more Zootops - who are the best nationality in the world!

And as for the news Bono promised about new stuff etc... I'll have a word with my new friends Paul and Edge on Monday in Vienna and see what they have to say about it!
