I don't think this will happen as Bono was saying when SOI was released that SOE was 18 months away with whatever they are working on with Apple and I-tunes.  Why they are calling it the I&E tour is a mystery that they haven't yet revealed.

I'm not surprised about this news. I know about the rumours of a Stadium Tour after the indoor ones the year after, but if they would release SOE after this current leg, then it should be called the Innocence Tour and the stadium tour should be called The Experience tour. The fact that the tour is named after both, kinda suggests that we get to hear tracks of both.

They might do what they did on the back half of 360 and give us unreleased SOE songs on the early legs, then release SOE for the holiday season in 2015....then in 2016 a stadium tour with SOE material included....

The title of the tour clearly suggest that album will be released before or during the tour. We'll see.

The earliest it will ever be is right before the tour, which is highly unlikely

U2 is full of surprises as they have proven with the release of SOI. Anything is possible.

Ever since the tour announcement I was thinking "Night 1/Innocence" would be songs from SOI plus hits/old songs and "Night 2/Experience" would be songs from SOE plus hits/old songs. But it could just be before the 2016 part of the tour also.

But Bono said it would be longer. Unless he was just trying to throw off, or mentioned a longer timeframe just in case they didn't feel it was ready.

2016 at the absolute earliest. Probably 2017 or 2018.

New management won't change their pain staking recording process. Best intentions I'm sure but they are not suddenly gonna start rushing albums.

I don't think they should wait to release simply because of technology

U2 have made some perplexing moves lately, but since the upcoming tour is called the "Innocence + Experience Tour", it seems like they must have plans to finish SOE and release it before or during the tour.  If they are going to do stadiums in the second half of the tour, it make a lot of sense to release it sometime before the stadium shows.  However, even though it makes a lot of sense and 5 songs are reportedly done, U2's slow recording process may force a change of plans.

nah. they wouldn't call it the innocence and experience tour if it was coming out till after the tour was over.

itll be by summer or at the end of the arena tours.

I think they have put a time table to finish the album. It will be out before tour starts. These shows will feature songs from both albums.
