They'll do their initial rehearsals at Rock Lititz before moving to Vancouver. Willie has been there for weeks already.

proof?
Common sense and logic?

That they did the same thing on I/E and nobody noticed?

That every major vendor that helps them put up their stages is based partially in Lititz?

Cause almost every major touring act in the US does the same thing?

Google U2 Lititz. This isn't exactly a secret.

To build those huge stages, they must have a pretty big stadium/warehouse no? I'm surprised no PA fans ever record rehearsals there. I've never seen photos of the band there

It's large, it's indoors, it's in the middle of nowhere, and it's private.

Is the first picture taken outside Hanover quay? Are they still using it much? I pass by it occasionally and seems very quiet.

We think that picture is from Lititz, PA.

I have family connections in the Harrisburg area. In fact, I've actually been to the town of Lititz once before. I'm familiar with Rock Lititz and the work they've done. I'll see if I can find anything out, though I doubt it honestly.

It was on this day 2 years ago when U2 came to Vancouver and rented out the Coliseum for a month.  They opened on May 14 that year, 2 days later than this year.
Even the radio stations are saying any day now, they will be rolling into town.  Keeping my ears open!

Not exactly. If he's like a lot of pro guitarists/bassists, he'll be practicing for hours each day and then performing for a couple more hours, not to mention rehearsal time. Not a ton of time for "vacation", more of a workcation than anything.

Yes, and constant travelling, being away from loved ones, living in hotels, etc. BUT, it is surely a more fun way to earn a living than many folks have...

won't be long now, the stadium is being used this weekend, so expect news next week that they've began rehearsal.

in the meantime . . . .  20 days
