Bono confirms plans for U2's 2015 tour

Recommended Posts

Rumour mill ......but Word out of Live Nation in Toronto today by a top secret source is that the next U2 Tour will start in Europe on May 1 and 2 in Paris and they will play arenas in Europe for 3 months. The tour will be called the "Volcano Tour" and the stage will be in the shape of a volcano of some kind. The band wil take August off for vacation then head to North America and play arenas in the US and Canada in September - November then head to Mexico and Australia and play outdoors stadiums in December before Christmas. The band intend to play stadiums in South America in March 2016 and then back outdoor's for a possible a stadium tour in Europe in May, June and July and stadiums in the US in September October and November 2016.

?????

Exciting times again. Love it! Who knows what will be but this is all part of the fun :-)

It's fun to speculate, keeps me busy until something real happens :) 

This sounds great, the chance to see an indoor and outdoor show, fab!

the best stage I've ever seen and I didn't see the concert's live is MetallicA's 'Through The Never' stage.

I think they only did 10 shows on it, 5 in Mexico & then they did the film in Canada.

I saw 360 live and I thought nothing could beat it until I got my Blu-Ray of TTN :blink: Tesla coils are the sh*t!!

I like the idea of arenas but I also remember how super difficult it is to get a ticket when they do arenas. Perhaps they'd consider doing stadiums in the larger metropolitan areas in the US and then arenas for the rest? Like Seattle, LA, NY could do Stadiums? Just a thought. I'll find a way to see them either way. 

I didn't find it that difficult for the Vertigo tour with the presales here.  Hopefully, we'll get those again and all will be good.  Mind you, it was nerve wracking, but it always has been.

 

 

I have horrible memories of trying to obtain tickets with the vertigo tour - I didn't. I was in with the bunch who were blocked from buying tickets and that whole fiasco. I've had some concert (a lot...) experience since then so I'm sure I'll find a way. It will be interesting to get tickets though. But with presales (and no blocking from u2.com) I think it will be ok. I hope!

Ok, so the rumours of the stage being a volcano are kinda cracking me up.  First they came out of a lemon and now they are going to rise up out of a volcano. LOL

Wherever I read it, they may have been being silly.  I don't know.  I tend to take everything with a grain of salt unless it's on here.  But nonetheless, that did crack me up.

I'm worried about getting tickets to more than one show. If they go on sale at one time like all the UK shows probably will it could be a nightmare either trying to buy for more than one show and if that's not possible buying more than needed and doing swaps for other dates and venues. Won't be long now before the dates are announced and the sale kicks off.

I think they'll likely do indoor shows for the first leg where they play some rare songs then the next leg will be stadiums and revert to a more greatest hits show.

 

I don't see them playing two different shows over two nights, it would be very confusing. Maybe they'll change the setlist frequently etc.

 

But I can't see them doing specific nights for hits and another for b-sides etc.

I saw 4 Elevation shows from seats. It was not like being on the floor. I missed the floor. I was so glad to be back on it.

Vertigo was floor, Bonolulu, my hometown show.

360 was always floor. All those pretty lights and Zooropa...*sigh*

 

I don't want a seat.

 

Maybe for once the u2.com pre-sale will lift the limit on how many shows you can buy tickets for. Money is money right? I will probably try to get to the tour opener, the middle of the tour and the final show. My life's changed significantly since 360.

 

It should start in Vancouver BC because it's closer than Europe for me. And I like Vancouver BC.
