Noticed a few concerts being announced for the Air Canada Centre in June, Paul Simon and Depeche Mode.  Both are after when the MBA and NHL Playoffs would end.

Currently the ACC is open the last two weeks of May and up to June 4.  On June 5th is Hall and Oates, then it is open until June 11, back to back Depeche Mode and Paul Simon.

There is still room for U2 at the ACC, but they will not do it until either the Raptors or Leafs fall out of the playoffs.  Friday June 1 and Saturday June 2 look to fit perfectly int he schedule.

But it will NOT happen until the sporting events are confirmed, they have first rights on the arena.

Why aren't U2 playing <insert city here> this tour?

This can be answered 99% of the time with, it logistically doesn't work out for this current tour of they feel the demand does not support a visit. 99% of the time it is one of those two reasons.  People think the band sits around a room and pick cities to play--no.  It's all about logistics and demand.
