Will SOE be delayed till Fall of 2017?
« on: December 31, 2016, 04:02:37 PM »
If all the rumors are true...

JT tour in U.S. In the Spring
Bonnaroo in June
Europe JT dates in the Summer

When exactly would it make sense to release SOE. I'd be surprised to see it out by March as it's been suggested.

Unless they do JT stadium and SOE arenas mix, we might be waiting awhile.

What do you think makes sense from a marketing perspective? Would music fans be reminded of their awesomeness in the nostalgia tour AND go to SOE as well (or at least buy the record).

Maybe they think SOE is so strong that it stands up well against TJT and we will be impressed that the 2 records were 30 years apart.

Well, all we "know" is that the album is coming sometime in 2017. A fall release date wouldn't delay anything, for all we know.

A delay would be, for example, the inevitable push to 2018.

I hope the release is sooner rather than later, the less "tinker" time they have will benefit the quality of the album.

The last 2 years have been "tinker" time.

Let's face it we have been waiting for a long time for this record. There has been a lot of false hope and wrong statements made regard the release date etc.

I believe we are closer than one might think to the release. I think we should expect to see the release of SOE in the first half of 2017. The tour announcement could come also with an album announcement, I am liking the prospect of the Live Nation concert announcement on the 5th Jan coming up.

I think the release of SOE will have something to do with the anniversary of TJT and if if is announced on Jan 5th for example, then we can expect a March release. After what we've had over the past while, id be a bit disappointed to have to wait until the second half of 2017.

Chris Evans said it was finished in November of 2016, it has to be very close!

No, I think we'll definitely have an album by May. There may even be a single this month

The more I think about this JT-30 thing the more I think whenever SOE does arrive, the tour won't go on until next year (which makes sense given the current rumours) and so we got these "special shows".

easier workload to make money as well....u2 are clearly now not up for such long tours playing so many shows so spread out...look at last run...

6 shows in 50,000 capacity stadiums for example sell 300,000 tickets .

in an arena that would take 20 shows to shift same amount of tickets...

livenation are looking to get as much as possible as the deal they shelled out a lot of money for comes to an end....so it is much easier to sell out 5 shows in stadiums that they are cleverly gonna market with the guaranteed seller that is nostalgia than to sell out 20 arenas on the back of a new record not many people really care about.

they can then sell the new album and tour with a bit more exposure as the nostalgia demographic may come back for more to boost things.

I'll just be happy if they get it out this year at all.

The tour can be announced any moment really. I think the album will take a little longer. But who knows?

That's what I was thinking. JT is effectively a promo tour for SOE. But will casual fans go to both tours?  And the timing of the JT tour, SOE release, and SOE Tour is still in question. I guess we will find out soon enough.

Hopefully Jan 5th is the magic date!
