A bit of fun i guess, but interested in the thoughts of the forum.

Any snippits from the tour crew, about future plans.

I'm hoping they may squeeze in a couple of UK / Ireland shows end of summer 2011.

I honestly don't think so but if they add KC I'll be happy to change my opinion  ;D

I was about to make almost this exact thread!

I am coming increasingly to the opinion that it will, for a number of reasons I just outlined in a thread in "News and Rumors"- if there's a new album next year, I think the chances radically go up further!

Though I'd be delighted if they just kept touring, I have a feeling they'll end it in UK and Ireland after the US shows next summer.
Though a new album might make another European tour happen. I think I'm addicted to the live feeds! ;D

I think there may be an Asiatic leg following the US leg next year.  That would be the logical and yes, fair way to end this tour.

As much as I would love Pittsburgh to be the last show (and trust me, I would. The tour ending here? Wow) I think a UK and Ireland leg will happen.

I think South Africa, India, Japan, South Korea, all deserve shows before the UK and Ireland.

I think Glasto is going to be the only UK/European show in 2011.

The tour has already been extended into summer 2011 by the make up dates in the USA and Canada.

I don't see any more shows happening.

Do you think that it means something that U2.com states the Pittsburgh show is the final US show and NOT the final 360 Tour show? Also, Paul said earlier this year that the band would not play any other UK shows than Glasto in 2010...not anymore UK shows for the 360 tour?

Seems very unlikely now that the tour will make it to 'proper' shows in the UK & Ireland. Seems criminal to me that the band play Dublin as the 8-10th shows of the tour, than play another 110 shows in the rest in the world without coming back. If Paris could get a return show, why not Dublin?

seems criminal to me that they won't come to Kansas City

Because U2 have shown time and time again that they brook no sentimentality to Ireland when it comes to touring other than generously playing three stadium shows in the smallish country when they only played a total of three shows in a country the size of England.
