What if the Dublin rumour is true?
If you have been hanging around U2-related corners of the Internet in the past day, you will have probably bumped into the rumour first revealed
(in Portuguese) by U2 Brasil that U2 will play ten shows in Dublin at the end of this year to wrap up the European leg
of the Innocence + Experience Tour. According to this rumour, the shows will be associated with Music Generation
and will take place at the 3Arena with support from Kodaline.
If this rumour is true, it will be the most shows U2 have played in a single city on one leg of a tour. The record is currently held by Sydney on the first leg of Lovetown
, with eight shows; on the forthcoming first leg of I+E
, New York will equal this total, and unlike Sydney the run of eight shows in New York will be unbroken.
So, when could these hypothetical ten shows happen? We do not know yet - the rumour doesn't clarify that detail. However, we can try to guess and make some assumptions. Currently the final show of the European leg is in Paris on 15 November, so the Dublin gigs must be afterwards. U2 so far have booked the I+E Tour according to a pattern of two shows in two days followed by two rest days. Let's assume that pattern remains, which means that 16 and 17 November will be rest days.
Second and final show for Denver
The first concert in Denver of the Innocence + Experience Tour
sold out immediately. Hence the announcement
of a second and final show.
The second Denver show will take place on 7 June 2015
. If you are a U2.com subscriber with a valid presale code - either because you are an existing subscriber who has not used it yet, or you are a new subscriber - you will have already been emailed details of a presale that is under way right now, across 26-27 March.
The general sale for this show begins on Monday next week, 30 March.
Although U2.com have not said so, it is possible this will be the last show added to the North American leg of the tour. When the tour was originally announced
in December last year, U2.com stated that there would be special shows in Dublin at the end of 2015. We are still waiting for those to be added to the European leg. As soon as we know anything, we will post updates.
Sixth and final show for London
Last week we hinted that a sixth London show may be in the works when reporting
on the new Denver show. We haven't had to wait long for that hint to come to fruition.
U2.com have just announced
one more show for London. It will take place on 3 November 2015
and will be the final show in London for the year.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 9am local time this Friday, 27 March. If you are a new U2.com subscriber or an existing subscriber with an unused code, a presale will begin at 10am tomorrow, Tuesday 23 March. Qualifying subscribers will be emailed details.
U2 add extra city to I+E Tour: Denver
Ever since the Innocence + Experience Tour
was announced in December, additional dates have only been added in cities that already had shows. That has now changed.
U2.com have announced
an extra city for the North American leg: Denver, Colorado. U2 will perform at the Pepsi Center on 6 June 2015
Tickets go on sale next Monday, 23 March. If you are a new U2.com subscriber, or an existing subscriber yet to use your presale code, you will have access to a presale starting this Thursday, 19 March. Qualifying subscribers will be emailed more information.
Rumours suggest that if this show sells well, a second Denver show will be added the next night. The addition of Denver to the tour schedule possibly rules out any more shows for Los Angeles, where sales have been more sluggish than expected (it was originally slated for up to eight shows, with the missing dates to be 4, 7, and 8 June). Although a sixth show could still be added on 4 June, it is unlikely as that would only leave one free day between it and the Denver show. So far U2 have booked this entire tour with at least two days between cities, or between pairs of shows within cities.
Meanwhile, U2.com report that the entire European leg is now sold out. Could that mean the rumoured sixth London show will soon be added? We will keep you up to speed with any new developments.
Eighth and final show announced for New York
It's been almost a month since any shows have been added to the Innocence + Experience Tour
, but today U2.com announced
an eighth show for New York.
This show will be performed on 31 July 2015
and, like the seven previous New York shows, will be staged at Madison Square Garden. It will be the final show for New York, and the last show for the entire North American leg.
Tickets go on sale at 10am local time on Friday, 13 March. There will be a U2.com presale (for new subscribers and for existing subscribers yet to use their presale code), beginning 10am on Monday, 9 March. Qualifying U2.com members will receive an email with details.
With the addition of this show, U2 have equalled their record for the most concerts in a single city on a single leg of a tour. On the first leg of Lovetown
in 1989, U2 played eight shows at Sydney's Entertainment Centre. However, those eight shows were not consecutive, but were played in blocks - three in September, two in October, and three in November, with shows elsewhere in Australia and New Zealand in between. Hence this run of eight is U2's longest series of consecutive shows in one location, beating the seven consecutive shows at the National Tennis Centre, Melbourne, also on the first leg of Lovetown.
