Any more venues for UK?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea? I'm surprised nothing has been announced for a venue in the north of England or Wales. My fingers are crossed for the North!

I'm very surprised Manchester has been missed.   Manchester Arena is the largest in the UK after the O2 London.  U2 generally visit Manchester.   I remember on the Elevation tour when U2 played 4 x nights in London and 2 x nights in Glasgow as same as next year.  But on the Elevation tour they also played 2 x nights in both Manchester and Birmingham.

 

Personally i think Liverpool Echo Arena would be a fitting venue.  U2 are well known Beatles fans, and to my knowledge i can't remember in the last 30 years when U2 played Liverpool.   Quite a large Irish connection in Liverpool also.  Liverpool would be awesome and wild.

I'd say almost certainly not for this leg, but perhaps if the tour returns in 2016. Although of course we were expecting more UK dates on the last European leg of 360...

Either Liverpool or Manchester would be fantastic. I thought Leeds might have had a look-in, the new Leeds Arena is an excellent venue.

Yes Leeds have a brand new indoor venue.   U2 have played Leeds many times in the 80's and 90's.  Leeds would work.  

 

Not heard anything about UK shows in 2016?

So besides the possibility of say Man city's ground in 2016, where else in the North West could they play?

Living right in the middle of the country surprised they missed out the likes of Manchester etc .

 

But being a Glasgow boy there only one place to see them outside Dublin and that's glasow be well worth the trip up
