Probably the Killers or Coldplay since they are touring the same time as well.




(You posted this in the wrong area by the way - Tours section is where is this is meant to be).

Oasis opened shows for them and they were big at the time. Coldplay adores U2 and since they both will be going to stadiums this summer there is a chance they will meet.

No worries - I'm just trying to help the moderators smooth things out (guess it's my way of saying thanks)  :)

I think Coldplay (and possibly The Killers) will be busy with their own headline tours. I'd love to see them pick up a less well known group to open.

Are you guys kidding? Coldplay or the killers? What about Paul McCartney while you're at it?

Please don't ever remind me that I didn't go to that gig.  Please.

I kick myself everytime I hear of it.

As for who's opening... I'll be surprised if I end up caring... :p

The only times I ever remember support bands were when Travis opened for Oasis in 2000 in Toronto and when The Music blew Coldplay off the stage (I've disliked Coldplay since) in Calgary in I believe 2002.

While it's doubtful about Coldplay and The Killers it's not inconceivable.  Remember, Pearl Jam opened the last show of the Vertigo tour and they're bigger than Coldplay and the Killers combined.

U2 may be in that place the Rolling Stones are where they can get big name acts to open for them, although I highly doubt the U2 could get acts from other genres opening for them like the Rolling Stones can (AC/DC; Metallica)

I could see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nicole Adkins & the Sea, or most likely Franz Ferdinand.
