Any news or rumors about more tour dates for E&I Tour?
« on: February 28, 2018, 11:41:00 AM »
Anyone out there know of any more news/rumors about new tour dates for the E&I Tour? Will they add any shows in North America or Europe? When will shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan take place? How long will the tour last?

There's a week between the Belfast & Dublin dates. Many Scots are hoping this will be filled by a couple of Glasgow shows (though I haven't heard any rumours yet). Kevin Bridges has a month long residency at the Hydro, for most of October, which may have complicated scheduling. But last I heard, the Hydro is free from 28 Oct to 10 Nov, which would fit.

Some people are saying Oz/NZ in Feb, though I haven't heard much yet. I'm hoping for March/April, as it's a stretch for me to get to Oz by February.

Hey, U2 are coming to Uncasville Connecticut! July 3. They are playing 10,000 capacity arena at a casino. That's cool that they added a smaller venue in a more remote location. I hope they will add more. This is a good sign!

Is that a guess or do you have a source?

I think it's a sign that Live Nation is running the show. Are you sure it's not Cashville, CT?

There a many that have claimed U2 would never again play smaller cities and smaller venues. The adding of Omaha Nebraska and Uncasville Connecticut proves that is not the case. Now maybe there is a chance for places like Columbus Ohio or Hershey Pennsylvania to get a show.

Nope dreaming out loud. But that Omaha date fit in like a glove 'tween the LA and Chicago dates. A sneaky and delicious fit.

Although it's be great to see the band in a small venue, I'd prefer they jump over the pond & play more venues in Europe that are crying out for shows. Not US venues which are struggling to sell out. For that matter, how about Oz/NZ, Asia? Sydney could probably sell out 8 shows, how about Hershey?

Hershey has the Giants Center which can fit 12,000 people, 2,000 more than the venue they are playing in CT. Hershey is the main concert location for the Harrisburg metro area, Pennsylvania's capital with a metro population of around 600,000 people. It is also in easy driving distance of some of the Northeast USA biggest cities. New York City is only 3 hours drive, Philadelphia 2 hours drive, Baltimore 90 minute drive, Washington D.C. 2 hour drive, Pittsburgh PA 3 hour drive. Its nicely centered between all those cities. They could do at least two shows in Hershey at the Giants Center.

As for Australia, New Zealand and Japan. They will be getting their shows in early 2019. They would not fly to Australia in the middle of an American leg of the tour.

I have no idea if this had anything fro do with the Omaha date, but Bono and Warren Buffet and Warren’s daughter Susie are good friends. I could even see Bono doing some fund raising thing (maybe private) with them the night before.

Id say its going too happen Oz/Nz but i doubt we hear anything till mid summer or just after they dont need too say anything also they know tixs will sell out in rapid time meaning they could leave even less time before they drop anything.

Im also thinking EU will get a 2nd leg loads of places too visit
Poland
Norway
Austria
Finland
Too name a few this will be a big tour they be back nx year just my thoughts

I think IE is done with Europe. I could see them do Pacific in early 19 but would they tour Europe in March?
