Cool!  That's not Eve, though.  Not sure who the girl is.  Nice to see Bono enjoying himself.  He looks like Robin Williams in these photos :0

I think it will have to be at Olympic Park.

I think they will do the MCG in Melbourne and obviously Adelaide Oval and Optus stadium in Perth.

Suncorp in Brisbane.

The MCG has started actively booking shows again, hosting Guns and Roses, Bon Jovi and Eminem in recent times.

Exciting times.

It's International Women's Day....and during an escape from my mad office world filled with other women all in professional disagreements over one thing or another, I took some down time in the car, turned to my phone and found this on the @U2 homepage

That was such a fun read (apart for the whole section on glaucoma, of course - lifted from 2014).
Bono made my International Women's Day......thank you, Bono, for making me smile before heading back in to the hothouse.

When Ed was in Australia recently his ticket prices were very affordable.  I would guess U2 would be a lot more.  Ed keeps things simple apparently, just him and his guitar  Now U2 are getting older I reckon stripped back shows in the more far flung places would be good.  Just the band and their music without lugging complex stage setting around the world.  I would just like to see them play their music without all the carry on.  Must be getting old lol.

Has anyone from down under heard of the rumored Sydney dates yet?

No. But U2Songs & other sources have said the Aussie shows will start in Brisbane on the 13th November. They've also said Sydney will be the fourth Aussie city visited by the tour. Assuming 2 shows in each city, & a 2 day break between cities. That should put the Sydney shows around 25th & 26th November.

I wonder where those Sydney shows will be. ANZ stadium at Homebush is due to start refurbishment in early October 2019, unless things change. Allianz stadium is likely to be a hole in the ground. I guess the cricket season be well underway by late November, so wouldn't think the SCG would be available. The new stadium at Parramatta only seats 30,000 people, not much more than Qudos Bank arena.

Anyone have any ideas.

I'm not highly optimistic, but nothing's been announced yet. Who knows?

My guess is that even if they can fill a stadium nicely, that the costs of going to a continent are not well wiped out by two cities. I'm assuming Ed's stage set is nowhere near U2's.

Though they did it with The Claw and the PopMart rig so who knows.

I will be pulling for you.

Just curious, how are U2 regarded in SA? I mean, people these days have heard of them? Do they get any radio play?

General U2 Discussion / U2 looks set to ignore South Africa again
« Last post by Groovy on March 08, 2019, 03:12:33 AM »
I know most people on this forum are probably from Europe or North America, so wonít really care about this post. Thatís fine.

U2 love using Africa/South Africa as props (Vertigo Tour, NLOTH recording in Morocco, Ordinary Love), but for some reason they ignore us when touring.

If the rumors are to be believed U2 is about to announce a tour of Australia/Asia in the next few weeks. The tour is supposed to take place in November/December.

Now firstly let me say Iím very happy for our fellow U2 fans in those regions that you will get a U2 tourÖthe first since 2011. It is long overdue.

But Iím sitting in South Africa and it seems weíll be skipped over again. U2 has toured twice in South Africa - Popmart (1998) and 360 (2011).

When U2 toured here the last time the crowd in Johannesburg was one of their largest ever 96 000, while about 65 000 attended in Cape Town.

Why would they not bring the tour to South Africa? The biggest worldwide stadium tour worldwide currently is Ed Sheeran. He is touring South Africa in a few weeks time. I assume pricing etc would be similar for Sheeran and U2.

I know thereís been no announcement etc, but the signs donít look good.

Itís a sad state of affairs.

Well its a very poor recording so its kind of hard to tell but probably not a 5-star performance.  I know she can sing.  She was quite good in Across the Universe.
