My guess is as the tour goes on they'll add more dates.  Remember when the Vertigo Tour started they didn't even mention S America or Austraila it wasn't until the third leg something was mentioned.

If all of this is true that means here in the U.S. they might just limit the tour to a few large cities.

Actually, I initially thought the audience participation thing as described was a good idea, but on second thought I don't know if I like that idea. It sounds a little You-Tubish and the one thing I hate about You Tube is that every moron out there thinks they are a star and important. I don't want to see what you and your friends did with a rat on a Saturday night. I don't care for your "video remix" of "When I Look at the World". I don't need to see the hundreth cover of someone trying to play Vertigo. I don't care if you throw a drink in someones face at a drivethrough. Same idea goes for blogs. It's fine if you don't have to listen or you can turn away, but if you are forced to view this stuff, that could be annoying. I am at the show to see the band and hear the music, I don't want to hear the thoughts or antics of some dude out in the audience. I never cared for the confessional thing at Zoo TV either.

I am being a little negative today. I will have to say three positive things in the next day.

Its obviously going to be called "The Intellectual TOUR-toise" Tour. And yes, the word Tour will appear twice in the title.

Just a reminder....this is just a rumor.  I can't believe they won't hit Australia at some point. 

Traditionally U2 have only toured Australia every second tour.

And they were here for Bomb so you will have to go o/s for your fix.or watch the DVD.

No word (that I've heard) about them coming to Canada.....They've never left us out, and they sold out the ACC for 4 nights during Vertigo.  Toronto for sure, Montreal, Vancouver most likely.....I don't know about cities like Ottawa and Edmonton though.  I hope so, for their sake.

Interesting rumours, thanks for posting. No mention about South America, but Im hopeful they will come back, after the massive success of their Vertigo concerts in early 2006. And especially if they are into fan interaction this time around. Btw, Im from Brazil.

Cheers, MT

The only tour that they missed Australia for in recent times was Elevation, they were here for Lovetown, ZOO TV, PopMart and Vertigo. For some reason though I've had my doubts for a long time about them coming to Australia for this tour. Their alleged reason for not coming to Oz for Elevation was that it wasnt financially feasible at the time, and I reckon the same reason will be rolled out this time... but we can only wait and hope, otherwise Im off to the US or the UK later this year.

Love town was a different tour from Rattle and Rum

Zooropa was a different tour from Zoo TV.

Our Vertigo tour was at a different time from the US verion.

POP was a flop and they were trying to cover costs.

Every second tour U2 do a special Asia/South America/Australiasia thing.

So that is not quite right.

At the time of Vertigo the Aussie $ was about 96cUSD

today it is about 65c.

Understand.

If I were in their boots, this is pretty much exactly what I would do - because of family commitments.  Fly to the US for 3 weekend shows, and then head back to be home for 3 days (figuring in some travel and rehearsal time).  I can't imagine being gone for the better portion of a year, and this seems reasonable to me, frankly.  They can rock the stadiums, and this ives the most people the chance to see them.  I am hoping that they enhance it with live streaming (for a fee) or audio downloads of shows.
