Bombay Bicycle Club
Iggy Azalea
T Pain

I'm confused as to why you included a great band like BBC with Iggy and T-Pain.

Just kiddin around. BBC is an AMAZING band. SLSYT is their best and definitely one of the top albums of 2014

As the album was made when they went back to discover the music that got them into being in a band in the first place,why not get some of those from that late 70's early 80's era. Obviously the ramones and the clash would have been ideal if circumstances were different. I would go for Patti Smith and maybe an old contemporary like Mike Peters from the alarm.

I really hope they sign Zola Jesus on for at least a few shows, now that they've met her and seen her perform live.

Lorde
The National
Noel Gallagher (his album will be out just as the tour starts -- if the rumors are correct. Maybe North America only?)

Noel has already planned a tour in Europe next year, but if it happens it would be insanely exciting to have him and U2 in the same night. There were rumours about that a couple of years ago.

If U2 do stadiums this tour, how about the Foo Fighters as an opening act?!

The Foos are playing stadiums themselves. Add that to the Taylor Hawkins comments and it will never happen.

  Last 2 Australian tours:
  Vertigo - Kanye West
  360 - Jay Z
  This tour, perhaps Bruno Mars

The Foo Fighters are playing a few baseball stadiums on their own.

Just thought of another one: The Kills. Among the best rock acts of the 00's and 10's, I think.
