I never said that you implied any such thing.

You mentioned that the u2start post included TENTATIVE dates, which was good. I just highlighted the fact that the u2start post appeared to have errors, so it would be unwise to book anything (non-refundable of course).

What people chose to do with the information posted would be their own business. I was merely making people aware of it. Not every U2 fan goes to every U2 site. I came across the information by accident and posted it here since there is obviously great interest.

I also think that virtually all fans here would be intelligent enough not to make any firm plans rashly.

I made it quite clear in every post I made that the information was not concrete. However, this is the best indication so far that something is definitely happening.

I see 3 dates in Australia have been booked I wonder where else they will be going. its got to be a Scottish gig 

Okay, so Joshua Tree shows after all. This is just going to make me nostalgic for The Joshua Tree show I was at now!  What I do hope for this is that they find some way to fit SOI/E tracks into t

The link in the post that Peter made (the middle one of these three quoted) has the most current news - just click on it.

Please do not make this (or any other rumors) a contest about X,Y or Z... if/when there's something firm and concrete you will find all the official information on the main site. Please do not make any plans until there is official information...

thanks

Monday Monday Monday!   In four days we know a tour is going to be announced. It's in countries that have not had tours since Vertigo.  It may, or may not be, here or there.  This is a great thing either way. Thanks for the link, dmway. It's really nice not to have to search for it. I love the black background with the white fonts.  Could you now arrange for the entire internet to do it like that?   😎   

They are touring!  Yee Haw. We should all meet in-between and dance together..  I'd like to see Mich and Max spinning vinyl in the DJ booth.  :Bananaphisto:

You are the embodiment of the old expression “hope springs eternal”! 😄

I hope you get your wish. 🍀

Okay, so Joshua Tree shows after all. This is just going to make me nostalgic for The Joshua Tree show I was at now! 

What I do hope for this is that they find some way to fit SOI/E tracks into the set as well, because they’ve only done those songs in the US & Europe (unless you count Best Thing being played on The Joshua Tree tour in South America).  

One thing I also noted from u2songs was “we have been told the band will start work on a new album after this tour.” Even more good news!

Yes, the setlist is the most intriguing part in speculating before the shows actually take place. Obviously, JT, SOI, and SOE will feature prominently (as they should); however, that doesn't leave a big proportion of the set left over for songs that people want to hear and/or the band feel like playing.

I think that "Acrobat" would have to be played again (thus, MacPhisto should be going Down Under as well :MacPhisto_05: ) - but the rest of the set, my goodness, how would you pick the few slots left over?

Yes, and a new U2 album is always good news! :Bananaphisto:

Before the webpages were pulled, Ticketmaster was even sending my newsfeed ads about buying U2 tickets. Somebody is going to get raked over the coals for the leak (unless it was all strategically leaked on purpose). 😂

Yeah, I'm hoping for substantial changes from what we saw in 2017. I'd like it all to feel new & fresh, which might be difficult with the stage design (I was hoping for a redesigned b-stage for Lovetown30).  I hope quite a few SoI/SoE songs make the cut. Acrobat & The Blackout are both monster tunes, as is Exit! It would be awesome if they're all played. Blackout with that giant screen could be killer!

I can't stop laughing.  I would have missed this joke had dmway not given you a haha.  I'm American but that is brilliant.
