Are the Boys going to tour beyond this short run?

I don't expect another three year run like the last tour. Especially with Bono's injury, but I do hope that they come back to the states as they normally do so we in Texas, Florida, and the southern Central states can get a chance to see them as well.

Nobody knows for sure, of course, but I think they will do at least 3 legs, and will return for another US portion.  But, what with this whole "residency" thing, and the "two-show pair" thing, and the high prices, I'd say the odds don't look good for them doing much in the areas you mention--but we'll see, obviously.  On the up side, I also don't think Bono's injury will be an issue--it wasn't with his back injury, which was potentially much more serious.

 

LATER EDIT ADDITION--when I wrote the above, I forgot that 2016 will be a stadium leg.  With that in mind, there will likely be more "one-off" shows in the mix, which could mean greater geographical coverage than with this year's arena leg.  So perhaps you have good reason to hope after all!

If you look at post #163 on this thread, http://zootopia.u2.com/topic/29179-stage-design-merged/page-9 somone has found a link to the stage designer EsDevlin, who is apparently working on the design of this tour.

 

If you look at the Biography tab on her website http://esdevlin.com/ it says 'Having designed the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, Es is currently designing the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympics, as well as U2 Arena and Stadium tours and Carmen on the lake at Bregenz.'

 

I'm taking that as a very hopeful sign!  :)
