I wouldn't rely on another websites rumours as gospel (unless it's U2.com). The southern hemisphere fans need their fix, but I'm not sure how long a break they need as Adam said they'd be taking.

Also, how soon before gigs do they sell tickets to their shows usually down in Oz/NZ? I only ask as the E&I tickets for Dublin last November went on sale the  previous January - ten months before the set of gigs in Dublin. There wasn't such a stretch for the JT30 gig - tickets went on sale in January for a July gig in Dublin 2017. I'm just curious if they should be announcing ticket sales relatively soon if they're planning a pre-Christmas tour down south

No real rule.

If it's Prince, about 2 weeks.

If it's a money grabbing flavour of the month boy band who want to cash in before kids work out their music is sh**, 18 months.

U2... Normally 6-12 months.

So next few weeks should be about right!

Yep - for example, Metallica have just announced a (stadium) tour for October. So if U2 was actually planning something, having a tour announcement sometime in the next month or so would be quite normal.

Anyone planning to travel from North America or Europe to Australia for one or more of these shows if it happens? Its two weeks from the rumored April 12 date for tickets.

I am planning indeed. Want to see the NZ show and at least one show in each city.
There‘s so much else to see, and I don’t want to come only for the concerts only.
I‘m coming from Germany.

As much as we love to welcome visitors to NZ, these shows will sell out, and we haven't had an NZ show in almost ten years. Any chance of letting the kiwis buy these tickets first?

I think the threat foreigners taken up tickets is much less than it would be for North America and Europe. Plane flights to New Zealand and Australia are often double or triple of what it takes to fly from North America to Europe. I doubt the number of foreign travelers for each show would be more than a few hundred for New Zealand and Australia.

I'm not sure money is a huge barrier judging by some fans' attendances worldwide!

NZ is such a brilliant place to visit.
