May not be worth it.

Sounds like yet another delay

yep, you'd expect they'd want it on the breakfast tv shows, & the drive to work, for people in the east coast. But the way this announcement is going, you never know 😂 Though this delay isn't a big deal. Means nothing to the average casual, just us crazy fans

Perhaps it will be Monday May 27th for the announcement. Since things were seen on ticketmaster sites, I don't think this is a hoax. Another idea is that this is deliberate, to wake up the die hard's who then wake up the casuals. Once they get the critical mass they want, then the announcement comes, followed a week later by general ticket on sale to the public.

U2 and Live Nation are having trouble getting Funding, Sponsorships & Partnerships to seal the deal for The Joshua Tree 2019 Tour of OZ/NZ/Asia, hence the delays in an announcement.

A very close family member who works for a Financial Institution here in Australia has been getting constant emails from Live Nation , which i've seen, regarding Funding, Sponsorships & Partnerships for the tour.

Live Nation are pushing really hard to get this done but time is starting to count down really fast before it will be to late for a Tour for this year.

Live Nation have thrown us off the scent a few times as a delay tactic like "The Tour will have another name and will not be called The Joshua Tree" so we think all the Promo and Merch has to be re-designed and re-approved but in all the emails going back to last year and up to now it's always been touted as The Joshua Tree 2019.

An on air radio fella DM'd me saying 'listen at 8am'. That was Perth time.

Let's see.
Why did you have to say that. Now I'm stuck listening to Phil Collins 😂

Given the price of tickets, I wouldn't think funding and sponsorship would be an issue unless they want the ticket price to be pure profit. Anyways, based on what was seen on Australian Ticketmaster, I think this is definitely happening, the tour that is. When the official announcement and on sale dates will be is the question mark. Tour reportedly does not start till November, so I think they could still wait some more time, maybe even a couple of months. Just have to wait and see what happens.

I think the 8am announcement was that Cooper Cronk, the rugby league player, is retiring.

Seeing that it is time for the Down Under Tour, I think it would be cool if U2 turned the set list upside down.  Play all the non-Joshua Tree songs first, then play Joshua Tree in reverse order, ending the show with Streets. Not sure about an encore or not.  Maybe play a song off of each album in reverse chronological order, then JT in reverse, then a 4 song encore (continue with one off each record in reverse order)...Bad, New Year's Day, Gloria, I Will Follow.
