There's hope yet - they played a whole snippet of Mofo this tour... Once!

I wish they played some Pop next tour

That would be awesome ...... !!   If you look at the tourbook, the experience part shows a lot of colour. That will suit a theme about their 90's period. We will see ...

Lol I love it. But yeah Jick, what do you gotta say about that?

I will save this link and add it to the long list of U2's misdeclarations, deceptions, or "white lies" - whichever way you want to call it.

I have been compiling it over the years.  Check out this one - long before SOI came out:

This is really embarrassing for Adam, who clearly hasn't studied Jick's algorithm (which puts the new album at sometime around March of 56 years from now).

I've got a salt lick block for occasions such as this.  As is the case with each rumor of a new U2 album, whenever it comes -- it comes.

That might just be the most tenuous hope I've ever seen for them playing 90s stuff haha.

The band would probably argue that MW, EBTTRT etc constitutes representation of that decade... the colour part could probably be explained by these songs as well as they're pretty colourful and they open up the second (experience?) Set.

You gotta have hope don't you? That the band are creative next leg. The SOE album will give more clues.

Yeah! This means a new album in four years and it will be released
monetarily neutral on Meerkat!

I'd always rather they get it right than rush it out, but a two year delay between albums hardly qualifies as "rushing it out" in my book.

Two year gap between albums is pretty fast pace even for pop stars. Ageing rock bands ? I'm impressed. Given the long gaps betweeen All that.../Bomb and No Line even moreso.*

Nothing's been delayed since no release date was yet given. Gotta love the stubborness of "noez we're not getting SOE" troops despite the several clues.

*had Bono's back not intervened I think we'd have gotten SOA by now, too.

All that said...if they can finish it in 4-6 weeks, why exactly are they delaying the tour and axing the European audiences out of another SOI tour leg ?

Because as usual, they (mostly B) are scared shitless that the new album won't have a mega hit and launch them back to being the biggest band in the world... so they will continue to rewrite, re-record and polish polish polish til they have no choice but to release it based on commercial commitments...

It's only been just over a year since the last album, so why are people frustrated about not getting another so soon?
