Title: Any thoughts on what the tour could be called?
Post by: TheFly on January 20, 2009, 06:52:47 AM
With the last two we had short snappy names - Elevation and Vertigo. I can't really see the tour being called something long and drawn out like No Line On The Horizon, and it doesn't sound right it being called Get On Your Boots. I guess we never really know, though ...
The only song that sounds like it could be the name of the tour is Magnificent, bit even that doesn't sound right somehow.

Over to everyone ...

maybe just simply "Horizon Tour"  :)

I would honestly die if they called it the "Boots Tour". 

"Magnificent Tour"... I dunno, sounds a bit indulgent to me. A lot of people wouldn't be too happy with that name (least of all Larry, I imagine).

I can see it being called the "Horizons Tour", but other than that... I'm really stumped.

I also immediately thought "Horizon Tour" when I saw the subject title.

I posted on the other thread about it being the No Horizon Tour.  Maybe it'll be a lyric from one of the songs so don't hold your breath on the I Don't Wanna Talk About Wars Between The Nations tour.

I think it could be the Boots tour. Or the No Line tour.

U2: On The Horizon 2009
U2: The Stand Up Comedy tour  ;D ;D ;D
Unless it will be a concept like Zoo TV or Popmart

The Stand Up Comedy Tour would be different for them lets hope that Bono doesn't attempt to do some comedy on the tour  :P

How about the obvious. No Lines Tour :)

On a different note. Sort of surprised team U2 hasn't hit the ground running a bit more. Album launch is like 6 weeks away and no hints at tours and even more surprising we are officially into the release of the new album and u2.com is still decked out in HTDAAB colors etc.

Me, i'd go with the Tour being called the Breathe Tour after track 10. That word just sort of hits home with all the political and social unrest in the world.

FezMart?   ;)
Moment of surrender your cash?  :o (maybe that's just the presale  ;D)
Maybe the Unknown Caller will be Bono calling Obama, ala the White House during ZooTV?
Maybe the opening act will be a standup comic?

In all seriousness, regardless of what it is called, I truly hope it is Magnificent.

That's true they're actually a little quiet rightnow.  They're probably planning a media blitz once the album drops. 

On the tour name maybe it'll be called the Magnificant Horizon Tour?

Tell me i'm wrong..!

In reference to the French Interview, where Bono hinted on the tour name having something to do with '..kissing the future, f**king the past..' ..

AND

referring to that one forum poster who knew/heard from a Universal/Company person that the tour name will come from a Line in one of the songs

AND

the title of the first News post on U2.com being: 'Restart, Reboot Yourself' ..which happens to be a line in Unknown Caller


We therefore have the 2009 tour being the....


Restart, Reboot Yourself Tour

..or something like that  ;D

Title: Re: Any thoughts on what the tour could be called?
Post by: U2Fan on February 25, 2009, 09:19:48 AM
And I think Obama mentioned something about restarting/renewing in last night's speech.....So reboot yourself will definitely be the name of the tour.
