Well, he has time to perform with Snow Patrol, but cannot make any statement to clear up fan confusion. Maybe he is unaware...

He is not U2.

No, just happens to be the frontman. I've been skeptical of these rumours all along (particularly after 2001). Guess they shouldn't be obliged to clear up rumours not started by them anyway.

Can I ask for some advice from a newby?

If the Australian tour does happen - what's the best way to obtain tickets? I let my u2.com membership lapse a while ago - is it worth signing up again now? Or is there an alternative way to secure tickets without forking out $50 (particularly if the rumours are not true!).

Thank you very much.  :)

I wouldn't wait until the last minute, but just use the normal ticketing agencies if the tickets go on sale. I've always been able to get decent seats for every past U2 tour without any problems this way.

Yep rumoured dates were all correct save for Singapore. Always looked a tight turnaround from Perth

Well there you go - the rumours were correct, and I was wrong to be sceptical! Sometimes it's good to be wrong...:)

One promo says they have played in Asia 22 times, 21 of which were in Japan. Where was the other one?

They may have counted Turkey 2010 as Asia.

They only played in Asia 21 times. 
They played Istanbul - in the European zone (Ataturk stadium) and WALKED to Asia over the Bosporus Bridge whilst still in the same city.

Pricing...

$128 for GA seems fair.

Prices I understand are similar to the Europe version in 2017
