Any info / rumors on dates for Dublin and Belfast?

Belfast is supposed to be 31st October / 1st November. Was reported (in the Irish Sun, based on a dubious source) that the Dublin shows would be 23rd / 24th September, but that seems unlikely. Logistically it may not make sense to travel from Madrid, to Ireland, then onto Copenhagen. However, if the Belfast dates turn out to be accurate, then I'd expect Dublin shows to be scheduled after them - so, early November.

According to a "leak" Dublin will be Sept 23/24th.

If this is the case, they could squeeze in Belfast on the 26th and 27th, assuming they only do 2 shows in Dublin (which is likely).  That would give them one day to make it to Copenhagen (unless they only do 1 show in Belfast). The SSE in Belfast is open until Sept 29th (Shania Twain).

The Irish Sun (just like the UK equivalent) is a gutter tabloid. It is not a reliable source for most things, especially U2 concert dates, particularly when the source is a French fansite that has no more authority than anyone else. I could be proven wrong in time, but I personally doubt that the Irish shows will be shoehorned into any gaps in the pre-existing schedule. I would've thought that, once all presales are finished and general sales begin for the definite cities, then additional shows will be added depending on demand. Logistically it makes sense for Irish shows to happen close together, since they'll obviously happening on the same island in cities roughly 100 miles apart. That's why I think that they'll be added to the end of the existing schedule, which will probably be augmented with more shows in due course anyway.

Did I read somewhere that someone already has their tickets?
I will be selling my GA tickets for Manchester but I guess I need to wait until I have the actual tickets.
So look out on the trading forum for details.

Was there any standing at O2 available this morning? I secured Manchester standing last week but forgot about this 2nd presale until just now.  :-[ Doesn't seem to be anything left. Do you think this album purchaser code will be open again for Irish gigs?

Yeah, there was standing available at O2 this morning. Although I've read elsewhere online that some others couldn't find any standing. I pretty much got in on 9am and found tickets pretty quickly without much waiting!

The logistics definitely make it highly unlikely the Dublin shows will be September.  Anyone know what French site it was ( checked u2achtung and u2france and no mention of Dublin)

I think it will be Belfast then Dublin after London which should probably have 4 dates, as 2 is definitely nowhere near the demand in that city, and obviously they can sell four shows easily !

So the Oct 31 date looks possible for Belfast then Dublin sometime from 4th November as  the 3arena is available from then.

Funnily enough, The Sun don't specifically mention which 'French fan site' it is, but if it's even legit at all, it's clearly not one that'd be considered reputable! As my forum name would suggest, I'm following this particular line closely and, after the rumoured Belfast dates that emerged last week, there's been nothing since, for Belfast or Dublin.

Just got Seats for Manchester in the 02 pre sale upper block 111 in front of the stage + that collecter tix which aint really worth the extra had it for JT just dont want the hassle of having too keep checking all time over coming months.

I did 02 in 2015 & sat behind the stage so these should be bit better it was either over 200 each or 111...!!!! Ive never been MEN before i do like too go some where different
each time.

Note if your looking on the 02 pre sale click collecter tix always shows up tixs where as standard tix dont come up as much another way too make

Still no announcement for Dublin or Belfast, not sure why.  Makes it very difficult if you want to go to a couple of shows and make a vacation of it.

With the Madrid Show being added on Sept 21 makes it less likely that Dublin would be between Madrid and Copenhagen.
