Will U2 be touring this year? (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

From everything that I've read, the band is back in the studio, writing, recording and working hard at getting the next album out.  I was little hopefully that that would be touring again this year.  But it's June and I don't think that is likely.  My guess is the earliest that they could possibly hit the road is 2017.

Hope whenever it is they tour the Midwest & the South this time! With the exception of Chicago, these regions were pretty much ignored. In St Louis we almost always get at least 1 show, but that didn't happen last time around. They should probably give me a free blu-ray of Paris,pick up my script cost for a year, send me all of the special CDs from this site(autographed of course),1 of every type merchandise they sell here,offer to let me hang with them for a week or so(at their expense) & have me sing back up on some of the new songs(doo-wop). I'll cover my own restaurant tips tho; Wouldn't want to appear greedy.

Nope, that doesn't seem greedy at all.  It's the least that they could do.  ;)

I exchanged emails with Willie Williams last week via his website.

He is optimistic that they will be on the road later this year.

That would be awesome.

I think next album will be out soon and the tour resumes. I think Australia and South America will be on the cards. With the next leg of the tour coming back to Europe and ending in North America ... last show in LA.

 

Only a guess thats all

My Magic 8 Ball says that it "cannot predict now."

My magic ball says they will aim to do summer outdoor summer gigs in UK/Ireland on back of SOE release, however my ball says this could be 2018/19, as other parts of the world are deserving of the bands attention. As they done the major venues last year in the UK/ IRE & Europe, it would be silly and unrealistic to expect them back in Europe 2017, bar the odd promo gig perhaps. It's just not early U2 anymore.

It matters not a lot to me though, just pleased that we know for sure that the band are cooking something awesome in the studio. The great thing now is that no matter where they play, or whenever that might be in the world - we can choose to listen in!

 

This whole period has just got an AB/ Zooropa thing about it for me, or a JT/ RnH vibe - two albums being released in relatively close proximity to each other - in the former, AB was out for 2 1/2 years before tracks were played live in Ireland to stadium crowds. In the later RnH tracks didn't air to stadium crowds in Ireland until over 4 years after it's release (in tandem with the AB + ZOO releases) - so its not like we haven't had to wait before!

 

'What time is it in the world?' God bless the internet! ;)
