Does anyone else think a June kickoff for the tour is way too soon if there's a March/April album release? Something doesn't add up.

It seems quick but bearing in mind they get pelters for the No Line Promotion tour maybe they are planning a v different approach?

If it is June it starts it could be stadiums again if it's a Europe start?

I hope they don't open the tour in South America.

Nice timing on your post - 3:33:16, just needed that last number to go up 15.  ;)

A lot of musicians touring South America lately, must be a lot of money getting thrown around.

Or tax breaks.  ::)

I don't think they'll open in SA. I mean, in Brazil all the stadiums will be full (except Morumbi), and things will get crazy. And shortly after the World Cup we'll be broke (REALLY broke). Maybe they'll release in March/April, do some promo in May/June, and heading to Europe by July, ending the first part of tour in North America, and heading to South America in early 2015 (february/april timeline)

If it is June 2014, please open somewhere near NY.

Nothing like a happy birthday present to the first date of the tour.  :)

Me too, Midnight! My big 50 is on the 20th of June!  :o

I was also hoping for a Dublin show for my Bucket List and the big 50 to coincide, but finances may prohibit that.

I'm right behind you! My big 50 is on July 2, so I couldn't think of a better birthday present for them to come to Vancouver or Seattle around then !!!

Is there any actual news here or are we still conjecturing? At this point I think a summer tour is out of the question for 2014, not sure why this thread got bumped

It was bumped to increase tourism in Turkey apparently.

No hard news. I seriously doubt they even have a stage designed yet. They also have the quietest manager in show business right now, which no doubt has got us where we are here.
