Matt here. I’ve been posting on this site for close to eight years – just a brief introduction for lurkers who might not know who I am etc., since BS rumors get posted on and off. I’d like to think I can be trusted.
With that all being said, a good friend of mine has had a connection at Live Nation Canada for many years now whom he had dinner with last night. He looped me in on a bit of the conversation.
U2’s next tour will officially be opening in Vancouver in May of 2015, with two nights (currently) at Rogers Arena. From there, it will continue to hit major markets for multiple nights. The second leg of the tour will be including stadiums.
That is 100% of the information that was shared and nothing else is known (album dates, cities, routing, etc.)…but please know that as a loyal member of this website that tries not to contribute to too much of the bullshit, you can take this pretty seriously. It’s an honor to share such wonderful news with this community!!! If I find out anything else, of course I will share with you all.
My one request is that you keep it classy with this information. Even though I have zero reserves or doubts that this is true, please don’t take my word as gospel. I have not confirmed anything for anyone……but we’re close
If tour information rolls around and this ends up not being correct, I sincerely apologize. All I can tell you right now is that the people who sign the contracts to host these bands are under the impression that U2 is opening up a world tour in their arena in May 2015. Any surprise to you will also come as a surprise to them.
