Why March 2014
« on: August 22, 2013, 11:00:00 PM »
Lead single in January
Promo tour February
Album in March,
Tour in April
Tour ends. December 2014
Next U2 album? March 2019

Bottom line, March makes sense, because you often times don't want to release the album in the fall and then tour in the winter.

They could release it in November or December and start the tour in March. That would be more than doable.

People would go to U2 shows even if they released their album right now and started touring in July next year...I don't get it, why do they have to always go album+tour altogether...

Who said anything about touring in the winter? If you look at the last few U2 albums, the tour starts about 4 months after the album is released. November album/March tour fits this model.

People will go to U2 shows no matter when the album or IF an album is released, albums don't matter any more for U2 tours. 360 proved that.

Having said that I don't see an album coming out this year.

Album Feb 2014, tour starting April. Arenas US, over to Europe for stadiums, back to Us in the fall for Arenas.

It's a good question you raise, but look at it from U2's eyes.  Summer tours is where they will make their money regardless of whether it is an arena tour or stadium tour. 

Having an album and hit lead single means they are more likely to keep away the popcorn and free ticket casual crowd.

I just can't believe that if in fact the album is finished that they would just sit on it for 7 months until March 2014.  That's just crazy.

Crrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

They killed SOA and the Rick Rubin album and they decided to release the passengers and STOTD albums without the U2 name to them, so stranger things have happened.
