U2's Australian tour dates?

Well, well. Rumour has it that U2's Australian and New Zealand concert dates will be officially announced this weekend, as a major story in the Sunday newspapers. If dates are being announced then, or early next week, you would think promotional posters would also be prepared to place throughout major cities, as per usual. In recent hours, images of Australian promotional posters have in fact appeared online.

These posters include Australian concert dates. As they are for the Australia market, they do not include any possible New Zealand dates. The itinerary given on the posters (but NOT officially confirmed!) is:

1 December 2010: Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria
8 December 2010: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Queensland
13 December 2010: ANZ Stadium, Sydney, New South Wales
18 December 2010: Subiaco Oval, Perth, Western Australia

These shows will, according to the posters, go on sale at 9am on Friday, 3 September 2010 via the usual outlets - Ticketmaster or Ticketek, depending on the venue's ticket agency arrangements.

We must emphasise again that these dates are NOT YET officially confirmed. If they are true, then U2 will be visiting Perth for the first time since Popmart on 17 February 1998; it would also be their first outdoor stadium concert in Perth. The venues for Melbourne and Sydney are the same as in 2006, just under new names. There appears to be space in the schedule for additional dates in the listed cities; unfortunately, Adelaide does not appear in this itinerary, continuing U2's habit of performing in either Adelaide or Perth.

It looks like an official announcement is imminent - stay tuned! We will let you know when it is made, and whether the above dates are accurate or bollocks.
