Hope they do that for the 2nd Philly show.  Couldn't get GA for that show but have a lower level seat right behind the stage.  May try for something cheap but with a better view.

The Philly shows are SOLD OUT! The only tickets available are re-sale tickets from scalpers.

CORRECTION! There are actually tickets left, but you can't get them through ticketmaster.com. Its through Live Nation. Best way is to go through U2.com and then clink on the link for tickets for either date in Philadelphia. There is no map showing how many tickets are left though.

Songs Of Ascent will not happen, I'd bet money on that. I believe that after this tour finishes (whenever that is) we will have silence for a few years, peppered with the occasional hollow promise that an album may be coming.
And if they skip Aus/NZ for the third tour in a row then that would be a pi*s poor effort.
I think the gap between tours (assuming theres no ZooTV30) will be equal or greater than the 4 years between 360 and IE. Their songwriting is getting slower. Songs of Experience is just leftover material from writing songs of innocence.

I don't think you understand. Songs of Experience is not leftover Songs of Innocence material at all. They were conceived as an idea together, to do both albums as a concept on the theme of innocence and experience. No leftovers involved anywhere.

But you do realize half the song titles were announced in 2014/2015 around the time of SOI release right? Get out of your own way, There is a light, Red Flag Day, Landlady, Little More Better, Little Things(previously called Morning after Innocence), and Love is Bigger are all old titles. Edges wife leaked Love Is All we have Left.

Adam posted the Blackout in July of 2016. And Best thing leaked August 2016. That’s only two new additional titles (as far as we know) and even then the album wasn’t released until December 2017. Summer of Love was being produced in early Spring 2016 by One Republic in Italy.

Sounds like leftovers to me. And it took 3+ years to cook them when they were already prepped beforehand for some time. Which makes me laugh when people say they’ll have an album out in 2-3 years.

No. Not leftovers. A concept released in two albums. What you have observed is a delay in releasing the second, not leftovers. That would be like saying The Empire Strikes Back was leftovers.

Any thoughts on the likelihood of this tour returning to North America in 2019?  I'm not sure what past history suggests, but curious what everyone's thoughts are.  I'm hoping there are more chances to see the show next year!

               I have doubts about it, but it is possible since they skipped some big cities. The following cities could get shows in 2019 if they tour NA again.

Seattle
San Diego
Salt Lake City
Phoenix
Denver
Dallas
Houston
Tampa
Miami
Kansas City
Minneapolis
Detroit
Columbus
Pittsburgh
Atlanta
Charlotte
Vancouver
Edmonton
Winnipeg
Toronto

                20 Big cities that they skipped on this years tour with the exception of Atlanta. I think they could easily do a total of 30 shows among those 20 cities. Some places getting only one night while others getting two nights. They won't be returning though to markets they played this year, with the exception of Atlanta.

I don't think there's anything any of us can really say here since this would certainly break the no politics rule.  So I'll just say it's clearly a major topic in Ireland.

I ultimate wish is that they go to Australia New Zealand and Asia on this tour. Many fans on here have been wishing on that for years.

Then I hope they come back for a ZooTV30 tour, after. Edge and Willie Williams have been interviewed saying it is very possible since they did JT2017

Tours / Re: Chicago 5/22 Bono’s fall

For all those precious types. Bono is saged, self depreciating Irish man. There is a certain black or gallows humour that is associated with an event like that. Humour is how it is dealt with. He recovered immediately, he's fine. He'll be the first one to mock himself about it.

What like really hoping that he had broken his neck and died?  I wouldn't call that humour. Some of the YT comments were bad, total lack of any empathy, not funny at all.

That's an AMAZING description! I also noticed the light "scans" him during LIAWHL.

Hear that.  Would be interesting especially since a number of shows haven't sold out.  Though it seems like most of those seats are upstairs behind the stage.

It's not just the rear upper cheapies that aren't being sold out. Plenty of $330 seats left too. People who have bought those cheap rear uppers are being moved to unsold seats in better sessions for free, so those rear sections can be curtained off. While other seats are being greatly reduced, $330 seats selling for as little as $76. Note, this is the primary sales, not secondary market tickets.

Bring on an Aussie tour instead of the 5th US leg in 4 years.

A Man and A Woman (One of my favorites. I will never understand why this song isn't popular!)
