Based on what Adam said at the U240 event, very unlikely. They want to do a continuation of 2015

The same staging but incorporating songs from the new album that will be called Songs of Experience?

Yes, I would still go to a stadium tour, but I'd be VERY disappointed.
 I WANT AN ARENA SHOW. Gosh, that was almost a temper tantrum...

No.

u2 as a stadium act are well past their sell by date and they can't do themselves justice in such large places anymore.

I was very disappointed by the 360 gigs I saw.....I enjoyed and was largely impressed by the shows on the last tour I saw.

Yes, the arena shows were up close and personal...easy to feel the power of the music, easy to be a part of it. Stadium shows are like a freakin' zoo. I don't belong in a zoo.

U2's like Pink Floyd - the bigger the venue, the better they are. I'd rather see a stadium tour than an arena tour.

I bet U2 were better in an arena than in a stadium on the Joshua Tree and Zoo TV tours.  Nothing much has changed in that respect.

There is such thing as a stadium act?  Who in your opinion is a decent stadium act?

U2 used to be.  The Rolling Stones used to be.  Pink Floyd used to be.  Michael Jackson used to be.  Those were the big four in terms of attendances, I believe.

I took my daughter and her friends to Taylor Swift - big stadium show.  She rocked it.

I actually think pop is well suited for stadiums if the show is engineered the right way.  Love her or hate her, she delivered.
