Any rumors of shows in Texas? I haven't heard anything and am assuming they're saving shows here for the SOE arena tour. I bet Bonnaroo will be as close as they come to playing the south.

They skipped the south last time. Depends on how long this tour is. If they come to Nashville, logistically, they might as well play another couple of shows while they are down this way.

Aside from shows, Anton Corbijn is reportedly currently working with U2. They are supposedly eyeing Autumn to release SOE.

Continuing a tour from 3 years ago into 2018 certainly seems...

A bit like a mistake, but it's certainly in line with what we've been hearing (the possible fall arena dates in Columbus).

I would feel a bit cheated if the U.S. only gets a TJT short tour and no more SoE dates. If anything, I'd choose more SoE dates rather than straight up nostalgia.

I suppose it's possible they might do something like this:

Spring/summer 2017 - TJT short tour in the U.S./Europe
Fall 2017 - SoE comes out and U2 does a SoE tour in South America
Early winter 2018 - SoE tour comes to U.S. or Europe or both

I say South America because I can't see them doing separate tour dates in the U.S. within a few months of each other.

How accurate can these rumours be...people seem to be taking these as gospel?

I agree, I'm skeptical of all of them and am not buying into the hype until something is actually announced officially.

Until then, it's all just speculation. Speculation like when people thought U2 would release SoE in 2015....or 2016.

Of course, nothing is real unless it's actually announced.

Even then, these guys are known to "change" their minds a lot.  ;)

It sure is fun to speculate, though. I saw on that rumors page that there's a rumor of a Chicago Soldier Field show. Which would be perfect for me, much closer than traveling to NJ for the rumored MetLife show. Then again, I'm tempted to go to both because I've always wanted to check out the east coast of the country.

It's fun to hear the various rumors but we have to take them very lightly. Heck, we still don't know what the actual "special shows" will entail or whether the band will even play TJT in its entirety.

Second Rose bowl show now... The rumors sound more like a tour than just "special shows"

I just hope we hear more about SoE (without BS).
Shows are great, but they're one time events.
You live with the music.
