Rumors abound that, after getting blanked at the MTV Europe awards last month, the band is determined to reclaim their mojo by launching a limited-gig world tour next summer.
According to London’s Daily Mirror, the Irish band is planning to play just a handful of concerts next year — small, intimate gigs in their favorite cities around the world. The ticket-buying frenzy alone would be pure entertainment to watch — remember, this is the same band that sold 160,000 tickets to Slane Castle in just about four hours. Imagine what would happen if they announced a show in a place like NYC’s Roseland Ballroom.
Informed sources told the newspaper, “[U2] will go on the road for a few concerts next summer. It’s not going to be a huge tour, but there is going to be a select number of concerts at their favorite cities around the world.” Hey, start practicing your speed dialing now.
