I try to read the rumors and all but I've not seen any mention of San Francisco or the bay area in even rumored dates.  I'm really tired of all this waiting!  I can't really travel anywhere to see them.

I actually ran into a couple from Belfast last night. We went in early because my daughter wanted to see Muse. So I saw a ton of people trying to awkwardly take that self-picture of their group. I helped out and made their lives easier. Anyway, I met a woman from Belfast who's seen every tour since "Boy". Uh....WOW!

There were so many non-US people at Giants Stadium GA last night....it's not surprising that ticket sales in Europe are much better than the US.  By the way, most of the foreingers were VERY rude in GA.  No respect for other people's space.

That's a cultural difference...nothing to do with rudeness at all.

Read this FAQ Neilsen posted about subscriptions to U2.com.

They will be back.

no North America (again)?

Um, aren't they playing North America NOW?

North America gets spoiled and far more U2 shows by number and capacitya nd pro-rata than any other territory in the world on every single one of U2's tours since 1987. When did they last play South Africa (12 years ago)? How often have they toured South America (twice in 32 years)?

Get a grip!

Hey... I live in central Canada and they never play here.  What I do is get on an airplane and fly to see them.  How about you fly to the US?

A Couple questions:

Which side of the country does U2 plan to start their 3rd leg in America? I would assume West Coast in early June, no sense in hauling all of the stages back to the east coast only to have to go back to the West Coast. Opinions?

Obviously no one knows, but when do you estimate U2 will announce the rest of the 2010 dates?

Here are my guesses for the U2's next couple years:

Songs of Ascent released- February/ March 2010

Promotion of new album- March through May 2010

3rd leg begins in San Fransisco- June 2010

3rd leg ends in Miami- Late July 2010

4th leg begins in Europe- August 2010

4th leg ends in Europe- mid October 2010

5th leg beings in Australia- November 2010

5th leg ends in Oceania- December 2010

U2 take 4 months off before heading back to the studio to finish up some work- 2 albums will be released by the end of 2011- another tour (arenas maybe) still in question

I am not sure where I read it but I do remember a possible Giants Stadium date in late July 2010 ???  We'll soon find out as things become official.  If that is true then they will be one of the first acts to play the brand new stadium prior to the first football season there.

Why should I fly to the US to see them when I can fly somewhere a little nearer? The whole point of a tour is that they come near to us, and we go to them.

Interesting, achtung!  Why San Fran?  I think they'll start in Seattle and go down to Oakland, CA, and they may end up back in NY/NJ for the new stadium. 
5th leg could be as you state or S. America.

I honestly just randomly chose San Fran, just because they've never opened there before. Seattle is definitely a possibility, but who knows, like we both said, it might just start on the East Coast. Hopefully we'll get some initial dates in the next month or so (although I don't want them to go on sale too soon, I just got done convincing my parents to take me to Chicago for the concerts, no way there going to approve of another trip to see U2 this soon!)

It won't likely start on the East coast given they're finishing this leg in Vancouver but I do think they'll do more shows back east next leg before heading to Europe again -(eg) in NY/NJ and Boston, as well as Chicago, and other cities they haven't played yet.
