For most fans today’s news was bitter sweet. The whole idea of having to wait a whole year before the boys come back to America seems a bit much for a few fans. For the most part fans see this as a possibility to catch U2’s new album which by the Summer 2011 should be out. At least the first single should be. Have you had time to look at the new dates and see what impact if any the dates make on your new travel plans? What do you think ? We want to hear from you.
As fans began to get the news of updated dates U2’s site become flooded with fans trying to get news. Early the site was down as they scrambled to deal with the large amount of traffic. U2TOURFANS had an increase that swelled as the day progressed.
Bono said in a video message that they have been working on some new music. We can expect to hear more about that in the coming weeks. In case you have been under a rock today here is the announcement.
U2’s summer concerts in North America, postponed in May to allow Bono, the band’s lead singer, to recover from back surgery, have been rescheduled for next year.
The 16 shows will now begin on May 21 at Invesco Field in Denver (where the band was to have played on June 12, 2010), and continue through July 23, when it will play at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The show at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., originally scheduled for July 19, 2010, will now be on July 20, 2011. The band has posted the full schedule on its Web site.
