Will U2 Return To The UK And Europe In 2011?
« on: January 05, 2011, 08:39:05 AM »
I really want U2 to tour in Europe, but especially the UK towards the end of 2011. If what we are hearing is said to be true, then U2 will have a new album out by May. This means that they will have to promote that album with, either a brand new tour straight after the 360 tour ends or in 2012, or continue with their spectacular 360 tour but dominate the set-list with new songs in 2011.

When U2 released No Line On The Horizon in February 2009, they started their "360 Tour" four months after, at the end of June. So if a new U2 album is released in May 2011, it should make sense to start a brand new tour in September. The only problem is that the 360 Tour is scheduled to finish at the end of July. So they would only have two months off before their brand new tour would start at the end of September. Would this happen? And if so, would they be returning to Europe and the UK by the end of 2011?

What are your thoughts?

I think U2 will play the UK but not Europe. The 360 Tour will end with a small leg around England, Wales, and Ireland.

I never said Ireland was in the UK. I merely said that the UK NOT Europe will see U2 this year. Then Ireland to finish.

Semantics.  U2 are half British anyway.

They probably will, but I voted no since I would love for Pittsburgh to be the last show on the tour. Although I saw an add for that show that says "last date of the US tour". Not the tour in general.

No.  I don't think the logistical costs of transporting the 360 circus back to Europe would be justified for a few more UK dates.

I will be suprised if the 2011 "Europe" leg is anything more than a handful of UK cities and Dublin.

Hmm. You say referring to Ireland as being part of the UK is just 'semantics' yet insist on referring to U2 as 'half-british'. Seems like you have a problem with Ireland.

I really do hope so. But I'm still afraid...   ...what if?
