@DLCoachNash I wouldn’t worry about uninformed fearmongering.
@rockroadie69 2/2…so I’m 99% sure the night one/night two difference won’t be acoustic/electric (or hits/rarities for that matter).
@rockroadie69 The band themselves said if they did acoustic/electric nights they’d have to make it clear before tix sales. They didn’t…1/2
I hope those of you going for tickets to the extra North America/Europe shows today had good luck.
Not sure what to say in Australia this morning. Horrible. Look after each other, folks. #sydneysiege
@rosevearjc two more gigs for London are rumoured.
@rosevearjc Nope. I think you’ll have to wait for 2016.
@U2start Not yet. This was a seat and possible start for another city to be added to my schedule :-)
Most ticket systems are able to hold the tickets at least for a few minutes while entering data.
Ticktacktickets message: NOTE! The tickets for some of your zones have sold out during the buying process!
@welshevs75 Some were cancelled in US Ticketmaster account. No email notification.
@welshevs75 Ticket cancellation has already happened to some people, inc two diff people using diff codes but with same billing address.
@welshevs75 The system doesn’t stop you from using over your allocation at time of purchase, but later the tix will be cancelled.
Also extra dates in Montreal, Chicago, Boston, New York, Stockholm, Berlin and Paris #U2ietour
@CasperGraaf thanks! Had not seen this.
2 extra shows in Amsterdam added September 12.+13. 2015 #U2ietour
@kevinrobers Sometimes there were fanclub presales for extra dates, other times not. Hard to know which will happen this time.
There are obviously extra gigs to be announced, e.g. prob 2 in London. But when will they drop? That’s the question everybody’s wondering.
@ghogg697 Yes, stadium gigs in 2016 have been rumoured. Not much more detail yet.
@ghogg697 I guess a good amount was already sold in the presale.
@ghogg697 Some GAs were available at AXS.
Tickets have flown out the door for European shows in general sales today. If you got some, especially GAs, count yourself lucky!
@Nick_Sipp Arena gig ticket sales (both pre and general) are usually chaotic. Stadiums not so much.
@toddiet123 I haven’t heard anything about opening acts so far.
@docamstrup Look good so far. We still need some luck on Monday. But it’s a long time until the shows so everything should work out.
@golden254 Most likely not but this might change. It’s some time until all this starts :-)
@u2wanderer some GAs not available anymore eg. Turin, Berlin2 and some London shows.
@u2wanderer works good so far for me.
Review of U2 minus 1 Time Square concert by our staffer Chris: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
One bit of news that got lost in the tour excitement yesterday was U2 having to cancel playing Almost Acoustic Xmas: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Great Interference thread setting out info you need to know about presales and general sales for the U2 tour: http://www.u2interferenc…
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. :-)
