Thank you FAYF. Let's try to debate on the actual question and not Ireland  ;)  I do hope they return to the UK this year, but I just don't see how they are going to fit it in with the new album release?

When do you think U2 will play any dates in the UK this year?

We know that Glastonbury is June 24th, so they could come back after their US leg for a few dates, perhaps at Wembley, but would it really be worth it? Should U2 start a brand new tour in 2012 to promote their new album, or should it be towards the end of 2011?

If 360 is a world tour, then I await the anouncement of some Asian dates.

What won't happen, but would make perfect sense, would be to stick out the album NOW. No more excuses or billshut. If they have the songs, and they are on the road as it is, stick out the record, NLOTH is dead in the water and has been for a year. The band still have 30 or so shows to go. They're playing the songs anyway. Stick the record out, don't think too much about it, do it. Just like Zooropa. Let surprise be the oxygen of publicity. They can then disappear in July when the tour ends for a while and let the record do the work.

Interesting analysis. I think it would be good if the album was released now, but they don't want to rush the songs out before Glasonbury. I think they should wait until May to release it, bang out some of the new songs in the US before heading out to Glasto' and then the record can take over when all is done and dusted  :P

Well, if the U2 camp can keep Adam's baby a secret then they can certainly keep us guessing on this. I don't think they are going to do it for some reason. If anything, I just thought they have a show or 2 in Ireland for the finale but I say more no than yes. Just a guess.

Well, now we know.
Straight from the Edge's mouth.
No return to the UK.

Well, at least I can now vote with reasonable accuracy... :P

In all seriousness, I am obviously disappointed that I won't see my favourite band again for a few years, but I saw them four times on this tour, and one of them, Torino, will always have a special place for me. I really can't complain, and I'm thankful I got to see them at all. But I do feel bad for my friends and others who didn't get to see them in 2009 and were hoping for a return this year.

It's a shame that U2 won't be coming back to the UK this year (apart from Glastobury) because I'm sure the fasn would have loved to have heard them play their new material along with their old and new classics. It is disappointing, but we still have the album to tide us over for a few months (if it EVER gets released)  :D
