If you’re catching up on the news, here’s the announcement of U2’s 2015 tour (updated w/ a bit more presale info): http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@docamstrup not yet. I renewed just today which puts me in the day 2 group anyway.
@docamstrup Right. Does not make it easier.
@JohnCropp the start of a little nightmare ;-)
@docamstrup Looks impossible if you’re planning a few shows. Not to mention that I don’t travel to see just 1 or 2 shows of 4 or more.
As one who planned to see shows in several cities I wonder how I should get tickets if sales are all at once. Matt
Personally, I (Ax) would love some Australian shows. Speaking of which, it’s past 2am here. I’m over and out for today - an exciting day!
If your country/city wasn’t announced today, sorry. Dublin WILL have shows late 2015. Elsewhere? Either travel, or hope for 2016.
@RyanBooty18 Check the local seller. It looks like all shows are now up on relevant ticketing websites.
If you missed it in the madness earlier, here is our full report with U2 TOUR DATES 2015 FOR EUROPE, NORTH AMERICA: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
TICKETS: fanclub presale begins TOMORROW. General sale 8 Dec. APPLIES TO ALL SHOWS. Check local ticket seller for exact prices, times.
@LolammmoraLola Rumour is Latin American dates in 2016 but no firm info yet.
Main page article coming soon!
U2’s 2015 North American and European tour dates now listed on our website: http://www.u2gigs.com/In…
All European tour dates announced today are on our website (North American dates being added right now): http://www.u2gigs.com/to…
@Robbie_J Never doubted!
Euro dates on Live Nation here: http://www.livenation.co…
@dmacirish Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of Chicago gigs mid-2015.
Some of you wanted Netherlands date leak. Here you go: 8 and 9 September, Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam.
@Wicklow_Weather Not at this stage, sorry.
@MarcosP27 About as sure as we can be in the absence of official confirmation - which we should have within half an hour.
This will be the first time a U2 tour has ever begun in Canada. Later legs have begun there (3rd leg Vertigo), but not 1st leg.
While we’re busy leaking tour info, it appears one longstanding rumour is correct: tour to commence at Rogers Arena, Vancouver in May 2015.
@Robbie_J Just before I read your tweet I was adding the Rogers Arena to our database … ;)
Now time for Phoenix U2 dates: 22, 23 May 2015.
@Duckyduc75 Not yet, sorry.
@Robbie_J Yeah that’s pretty much always the case. Just looked at the 360 announcement in March 09 and it missed all second/third shows.
Another U2 date rumour/leak: Turin, 4 and 5 September 2015, start of European leg.
@Robbie_J And I’ll believe setlist diversity when I hear it. ; )
@Robbie_J It sounds to me the rumoured residencies will only sorta happen, but tour schedule conservative, i.e. no new countries/cities.
@Robbie_J You’re a good man!
@Robbie_J You know, this guy can keep an embargo and would like to be able to write up his article less frantically… ;)
Also, Innocence and Experience Tour? The IE Tour? Come on U2, get with the times and use Firefox or Chrome or any other proper browser! ;)
Remember, these dates are all RUMOURS at this stage, but the leaks look legit and the tour announcement is imminent.
Aaaand Glasgow, Hydro Arena, 6 and 7 November 2015. Exactly 31 years since two epic Glasgow gigs at Barrowlands: http://www.u2gigs.com/sh…
Via @u2italia, London’s O2 a run of four shows in 2015: October 25, 26, 29, 30.
Rumoured (read as: almost confirmed) tour dates coming thick and fast now. @u2tour says Cologne, 17 & 18 October 2015.
Screencap in case that Montreal announcement gets deleted, complete with crappy FB/Bing auto-translate: http://t.co/DgQjV7DpkA
Montreal radio station says U2 to play Bell Centre on 12 and 13 June 2015: https://www.facebook.com…
Looks like the Bercy page has been pulled already. Did anyone out there screenshot it?
The Bercy link also suggests the rumoured tour name of “Innocence and Experience Tour” may be correct.
Rumour has it that U2 may play extra shows the Bercy on 14 and/or 15 November 2015 too.
Bercy arena in Paris lists U2 shows for 10 and 11 November 2015: http://bercyarena.paris/…
Looking VERY good for a U2 tour announcement today. Keep your fingers crossed.
Hot rumour is U2 tour announced tomorrow. Will it actually happen this time? We shall see.
@EveryBrokenWave Turns out WOWY has only been done outside of a tour (or dress rehearsal) by full band three times before. All 3 during 360.
I’d like to thank @EveryBrokenWave (who has contributed to U2gigs as Matkin) for assistance with today’s report. You’re a champion mate.
@EveryBrokenWave Exc music vid and tour dress rehearsals, I make four prev: Super Bowl ’02, Cannes ’07, Glasto ’10 (Edge w/ Muse) and ’11.
Our report on U2 Minus 1 in New York, including video of the full concert: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@EveryBrokenWave Damn, wish I’d checked my Internet at the airport. Thanks for summary, writing up article now.
I know, how dare my work give me opportunities to travel! But we will post the set ASAP. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to cover the end.
We’re very sorry, but we prob won’t have live coverage of U2 Minus 1. Middle of night for Matt, and I (Ax) will be on flight to Hobart!
“U2 Minus 1” to perform with Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin in NYC today: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
atu2 Not usually fond of spreading rumors, but we’re betting U2’s tour dates will be announced tomorrow. (Monday) Hope we’re right. :-)
@EveryBrokenWave That was my guess over on Interference too. It’d be great to finally know the full set!
Awful tragedy today in the world of cricket. RIP Phil Hughes, you were an incredible talent. Cricket won’t be quite the same without you…
@atu2 Plus it’s hard to take that article seriously when it says 360 began at MSG and that Bono plays “a lot” of guitar.
Well look at that, Bono may be a in a bad way right now but he’s in a good enough condition to finish an article: http://www.huffingtonpos…
@JohnCropp I doubt this’ll affect shows over half a year away. If it any other band member I’d be worried, but you don’t need arms to sing.
Good grief, Bono’s bike accident was more than just a little tumble: http://www.rollingstone….
Rumour time: U2 to play the Bell Centre in Montreal on 6 and 7 June 2015.
Jimmy Fallon & The Roots closed the Tonight Show w/ cover of “Desire”. If you somehow missed what happened to Bono: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@Aries_Chick_x Probably a good chance. Almost every U2 tour has gone to Glasgow. Last time they didn’t was ’97 (played Edinburgh instead).
@EveryBrokenWave Haha yes, you tweeted it just minutes before the news broke!
@EveryBrokenWave I think you just jinxed this.
U2’s residency with Jimmy Fallon has been POSTPONED after Bono was injured in a bike accident: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@U2Nurse Multiple unrelated sources. Combo at once makes me think we’re v close; having tour promo on Fallon makes sense.
Rumours heating up that a U2 tour 2015 announcement is imminent. Possibly soon as Monday. That’d allow weeklong tour promo on Fallon.
Video of U2 at the Bambi Awards: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
U2 playing Every Breaking Wave at the Bambis right now. It’s the usual promo tour version with Edge on piano.

U2 on Bambi Awards today. Live stream here, begins 8:15pm Berlin time (2:15pm US eastern; 6:15am Friday Aus eastern): http://social.ard.de/bam…
@thedoorsdf71 You’re too kind, thank you!
@EileenCummings9 Would be interesting to see other predictions; I’ve enjoyed what others have made in comments so far.
@u2br Thanks! :)
Don’t forget, tomorrow U2 will receive a Bambi Award in Berlin and perform live: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Hope you enjoy my tour prediction series. All That You Can’t Leave Behind got the prediction treatment yesterday: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@christinamullis Yep. Think the fanclub is US$50 to join at the moment, which seems a bit steep to me…!
@christinamullis I (Ax) had no trouble getting tickets to 360 in general sales, but Vertigo in arenas was nuts; fanclub presale helped!
@christinamullis It is probably a good idea to have fanclub presale access, esp since the tour will be in arenas and demand will be intense.

If you missed yesterday’s news, U2 are headlining KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

@U2santos this is another Matt :-) I have a personal account as well but it’s used so rarely that it makes no sense to follow. Matt
The vid of EBW at the EMAs that was in our mainpage article is no longer viewable. View official vid here: http://www.mtv.co.uk/ema…
@philnmarks That link kept failing to load beyond halfway for me.
25 years ago the wall in Germany came down. First thing I’ve bought was my first U2 single WTSHNN :-) /Matt
