U2 to reveal new songs during ‘Joshua Tree’ tour
« on: January 24, 2017, 07:13:28 PM »
Adam Clayton has revealed that the band will play new songs during their upcoming ‘Joshua Tree’ anniversary tour.
The band recently announced details of a UK and European tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of classic album ‘The Joshua Tree’ – with support from Noel Gallagher. They will also tour the 1987 album in North America during 2017.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Clayton said that the group are planning on playing songs from their delayed next album ‘Songs Of Experience’ during the shows.
“It would be very much my wish that we could play something from ‘Experience’ as part of the show, maybe one or two songs,” he said.
“Again, I caution that by saying we really have to see the arc of this show and we have to figure out whether those ‘Experience’ songs would work well in a stadium in this context, but I’d love to see some of that material out there and people being familiar with it before the album comes out.”

A very misleading article title, "It would be very much my wish..." is just as good as "Not going to happen." with U2.

Adam Clayton did not say that at all.  You can read the quote yourself since you posted it.

It's not entirely her fault, she only posted the article title.

Certainly 2 and maybe possibly 3 threads discussing the same interview

The title of your thread is misleading, and yes I know you based it on the article... and already being discussed in multiple other threads...

Pretty clear that neither he nor the band have committed to doing anything new.  It's one of a million ideas they have at the moment and we all know how many of them will typically see the light of day...

I REALLY hope U2 don't road test new songs in giant atmosphere-less stadiums. Talk about a buzz killer.

Have they not learned from doing Mercy/North Star/Glastonbury on 360??

Stadiums are not the place to do play things no-one knows.

They learned those songs were sh** and didn't release them. I say go for it.

Do you guys want all these similar threads merged? I don't mind doing it, but sometimes it ends up creating more confusion than it's worth.

So if you know the forum thread was based on the article, why did you get your knickers in such a not?
