Live Nation quash Quebec City rumour
Yesterday, we reported
a rumour that U2 would perform in Quebec City on 6 June. Live Nation, the promoters of the Innocence + Experience Tour
, today announced that U2 will not be performing in Quebec City
In a somewhat surprising move, a press release was issued to deny the rumour. It is very short and straight to the point; you can read it here
(in English and French).
So if you live in Quebec and fancy seeing U2 in your province this year, you will need to attend the shows in Montreal.
U2 to play Quebec City?
The rumour mill has fired up today courtesy of Le Journal de Montréal
. They report
(in French) that U2 may perform on 6 June 2015 at the Plains of Abraham, Quebec City. The paper suggests this show could be announced as soon as tomorrow.
U2's nearest shows to this date are 3 June
in Los Angeles beforehand and 12 June
in Montreal afterwards. Rumours regarding the original tour schedule suggested there would be up to eight shows in LA, with the final three on 4, 7, and 8 June. However, the five LA shows announced so far have sold slower than expected, so it is possible that U2 may have organised an extra show(s) elsewhere to fill the gap.
Hence this Quebec City rumour is a little surprising, but not beyond the realms of possibility. We will let you know if anything is confirmed. If the rumour does come true, it will be U2's first ever visit to Quebec City - in fact, it will be their first ever show anywhere in Quebec
outside of Montreal.
Fourth show for Barcelona
As we predicted
last week, Barcelona will get a fourth show as part of U2's Innocence + Experience Tour
. This show will take place on Saturday, 10 October 2015
The general ticket sale begins Thursday next week, 19 February, at 10am local time. If you are a new U2.com subscriber, or if you are an existing subscriber yet to use your presale code, a presale begins at 10am local time on Monday, 16 February. U2.com has the details
It's worth noting that U2 have never before played four nights in a single Spanish city. With some convoluted counting, you can kind of, sort of claim they played Barcelona three times at the start of the 360 Tour in 2009 - by counting the limited-attendance dress rehearsal
as well as the first
nights. The only other time U2 have played more than a single night anywhere in Spain is when they did two Zoo TV
shows in Barcelona on 16
and 18 May 1992
More shows in both Europe and North America
Extra concerts for U2's Innocence + Experience Tour
have been added to both the European and North American legs.
In Europe, there will be a third show in Barcelona
on 9 October 2015
and a fifth show in London
on 2 November 2015
. We are led to believe that if these shows sell well, one more show in each city will be announced.
The general sale for London begins this Friday, 6 February. The general sale for Barcelona begins Tuesday next week, 10 February. A presale for these two shows is currently underway, which you can participate in if you haven't yet used your U2.com code or are a brand new subscriber. It ends at 5pm this Thursday, venue local time.
In North America, there will be a fifth night in Chicago
on 2 July 2015
and a seventh night in New York
on 30 July 2015
. Again, we are led to believe that if these shows sell well, one more show in each city will be announced.
The general sale for both North American shows begins Tuesday next week, 10 February. A presale for both shows begins tomorrow, Wednesday 4 February at 10am, running through to 5pm on Friday the 6th - all times being venue local time. You can participate in the presale if you haven't yet used your U2.com code or are a brand new subscriber.
Also, if you are wondering when the Dublin
dates will be confirmed, a rumour
suggests that an announcement will be made soon, i.e. this month. U2.com back in December stated that the Dublin shows will take place at the end of this year, meaning they will be in either November or December after the presently announced European dates, so there is plenty of time left for an announcement.
(Also, I would like to apologise for the slight tardiness of this article, especially for the European dates. We pride ourselves on having news as soon as - and often before - it is official, but real life had the audacity to get in my way this week.)
Extra show for Los Angeles, more to come in both North America & Europe
Today, one extra show for U2's Innocence + Experience Tour was announced
. A fifth date in Los Angeles will be performed on Wednesday, 3 June 2015
The announcement also confirms that extra shows will be added in Barcelona, Chicago, London, and New York. The precise dates have not been given, but will be announced soon. Keep in mind that last year U2.com also confirmed that there will be shows in Dublin at the end of 2015 once details are finalised. See the full list of existing dates here
; gaps in the schedule should indicate where the extra shows will slot in.Tickets for the fifth LA show go on sale this Friday, 30 January
. If you are a U2.com subscriber who has not yet used their presale code, or a brand new subscriber, there will be a presale beginning at 10am Tuesday, 27 January
. Qualifying subscribers will have received an email with their code. If you are an existing subscriber, renewing your subscription for another year won't get you an extra code immediately; we understand that it will be issued when your resubscription starts (e.g. April, if your subscription rolls over to a new year then), to be used during that year.
The addition of just one show in Los Angeles is a little bit of a surprise, as all shows to date have been announced in pairs. The promotional material for this announcement even requotes Bono's statement that night one and night two will be distinctively different. Some fans have noted that the Los Angeles shows to date have not necessarily sold as fast as expected (the original tour schedule allowed for eight shows in the city), so perhaps only one has been added to test the waters and see if sufficient demand exists for a sixth rather than gambling on both at once. Also keep in mind that the band could simply play the night one set thrice and the night two set twice; they need not be played evenly!
