When U2 announced the U2 360 Tour U2.com put the below message on their web site 9 days prior to the announcement. If the same pattern is repeated on the new tour then that would mean that we are still at least 9 days away from a tour announcement. See text or link below.

Tour Announcement Coming Up
On March 9th, the band will announce details of where and when they'll be hitting the road this year - but dates and venues are yet to be finalised and fans are advised to steer clear of groups claiming to have tickets available now.

Details of countries, cities, venues and dates will be revealed on U2.Com in nine days time and no-one has any tickets yet.

'The tour will be officially announced on March 9th and the schedule is subject to change of date and location till then,' said Paul McGuinness, manager of the band. 'It would be crazy to buy tickets before the announcement on U2.com.'

Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring and Chairman Global Music at Live Nation, underlined the advice to fans to steer clear of channels claiming to be selling tickets for the tour.

'The tour has not been announced and no tickets should be purchased at this time. ' he said. 'Fans should beware of unofficial and unscrupulous sellers.'

Bottom line ? Don't take a risk on any tickets until you've seen the real dates announced here, on March 9th.

Even an announcement for a ticket announcement would do right now!

Curious why you would start a new topic that has almost the exact same title as the one right below it??
(And with no new news??)

You can also navigate to it from navigation bar at the top. Click Tours (New). It lists upcoming gigs and past tours like the other site. It's new, Beta.

They made up dates just to get the site running. ^^

Edit: I think those are real dates, but only part of the promo tour.

Hopefully this means something will be announced soon if they are tinkering with the tours section of the site. :)

@U2 made some changes to the tours section a few months ago, so nothing noteworthy yet. But hopefully soon...

@U2place suggesting its a May start in the USA based on some chat from U2 personnel from last night (including Joe O'H)

Hopefully, they will start in Europe in May. I lean more towards that happening. Partly, due to the rumors of the 2 x Paris concerts, and partly because Bono was very specific - about visting Germany in May - on the German radio show. Paris and then Germany in May sounds very plausible. However, the last tour (360) started in Barcelona so maybe its USA's time this time around.

Arena even here in Italy?! I really hope that's not true!! The Mediolanum Forum in Milan is really too small for a U2 concert, it's going to be a mess. They would need to do at least three or four dates to accomodate the demand...

Nope... The biggest arena here in Italy is the Mediolanum Forum (capacity 13.200). Every other European major country has an arena that's bigger than ours...

That's what worries me too.
