Ten years later.
<Many will agree they rocked it...but  they dropped it completely after awhile, even cutting it--opening song--from the DVD.

General U2 Discussion / Re: When Will the Next U2 Album Be Released (Poll)

I guess it's time to start thinking about the next album, isn't it.

So far, I've cast the most optimistic vote . . . though I certainly won't be holding my breath in anticipation.

Hopefully we at least get some sort of b-side or soundtrack song released during the long wait.

Greatful for this, Jick! Thanks!
So true about the GNR concert, as I got home at around 3AM that day, going all the way back to Laguna!

Guys, let's do a meet-up if anyone's interested!
Planning of getting the VIP standing, or Red zone tickets as this is so close to the stage!
Hyped!

So for my guess (as of today), I’m going to go with “2022 (second half).”  I believe they’ve spent the first half of 2019 on a well-deserved hiatus.  They’ll end 2019 with a tour (for an album that came out 32 years ago).  They will take another hiatus during the first half of 2020.  They’ll begin recording in fits and starts in the latter half of 2020 which will go on for two years.  As long as something detrimental doesn’t happen (i.e. change of producer midstream a’ la. Rubin/Thomas), the album will be mostly ready to go in early 2022.  But they’ll wait to release it until late 2022, because that’s what U2 still does.   Actually, late 2022 might even be a little optimistic, but that’s what I’m going with today.

General U2 Discussion / When Will the Next U2 Album Be Released (Poll)

Since the end of the last tour, I can’t recall reading any news coming from the band about a new album.  Off the cuff, I remember Larry Mullen saying that he does “assume there’ll be another album,” and it seems that Adam Clayton said something about not using leftover songs and starting a new project from scratch…   But no proclamations from Bono about how there are several albums in the works, that The Edge is on-fire, that they’ve just had the best week they’ve ever had in the studio, etc. 

Maybe there’ll  be a quasi-proclamation on stage during The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 that they’re working on a new record.  Or maybe there’ll be mention during some interview promoting the tour that they’re working on new songs.  But as of right now, in August 2019, I haven’t heard anything at all about any future album plans. 

So that being said – when do you think the next U2 album is coming out?  The longest stretch of time between albums would be No Line on the Horizon to Songs of Innocence (approximately 5.5 years).  So I structured the poll to cover six-month increments, six years out from the last album (along with options for post-2024 and never).

If I am down under or in Asia and have waited years for the best live band ever, I would be deeply disappointed if they added in ANY Experience / Innocent songs. Having seen all three recent North America Tours, it was those new songs that sent people (other than die hard in this forum) running to the bathroom. I am all about the classics! Bring on the BOY 40 year tour!

I'm sure they will ad some McSwilly considerations.

Tours / Re: Is 90s u2 overhyped?
« Last post by McSwilly on August 06, 2019, 04:36:46 PM »
Zoo TV Tour was outstanding and still had a great mix of old and new songs. Most tours since then have been suffering through new songs while awaiting classics.

I'm ready for the big time!
