Starts May 12
Two shows at MetLife
And a pair of shoes in Rome in July

Official sources or just guessing the obvious European cities they normally play? I'd add Glasgow or Edinburgh, London and Dublin in there too :) #wishfulthinking

There's loads of rumors spreading. We could even get the announcement tomorrow you know! That said I hope they do Europe first. Maybe London \ Olympic stadium for London,  it'll be the first concert in that stadium too

It seems like US is first, then Europe, then possibly US in the fall, then Europe, then SA/Australia 2018

Those shows are for JT or SOE?

Don't forget Bonnaroo. It looks like that festival will happen from June 8 to 11 so it falls in line with the Rose Bowl show.

Interesting..we have Comcast Cable TV (in USA)..the on demand videos for U2 have been slim; just two or three selections forever  (SOI).  Now, all of a sudden, there are tons of videos available, spanning their whole career.  Is this ever a sign that things are heating up?  Prepping for a new album and/or Joshua Tree anniversary shows?

Now that is interesting. I have Xfinity as well. I'll have to check and see what all they've got on there.

Worth noting that Rocksmith of all games finally got licensing rights for some U2 DLC.

Don't know if this means anything. Most likely not, but it's good promotional stuff for sure.

I believe Comcast owns NBC/Universal (or is it the other way around?). Either way, Universal UMG distributes U2. So the Comcast on demand upswing may indeed be a harbinger of U2 heating up the media hype machine.

They actually released the Rocksmith DLC songs today.  With our Without You, Streets, SBS, Vertigo and BD are the 5 songs.  It is the first DLC of the year of the game and they seem to be making a big deal about it.
