Be vigilant, but be unafraid ! As U2 heads back to Paris

New York City:  Bono was honored during the10-year anniversary of his humanitarian organizations, ONE and (RED), Bono, U2’s frontman, was characteristically hopeful about returning to Paris, stressing joy and defiance in the face of terror.

"Nothing will stop us from going back. Be vigilant, but be unafraid." U2 does not have a history of canceling shows and as Bono said "Its the Irish in us we just don't want to give into terrorism.

The head of Live Nation Arthur Fogel's face said it clearly to us that this was not going to happen. Now we needed to turn our focus to how can we help our fellow musicians "The Eagles of Death Metal"  As we focused on our departure from Paris we offered our plane and in the end we found what was needed most was some mobile devices to reconnect. Since the band lost their phones at the venue.

When asked about the new scheduled shows in Paris, Bono said that the show will go on as normal. Defining normal as the show was intended to be. Its business as usual as act of defiance.

Paris will be the end of this tour. The band had planned to end their tour at home in Dublin however its fitting that the boys head back to Paris with all the hope in the world for peace.

INGLEWOOD, CA: A day off for all us U2 goes back to work at THE FORUM with show #3. The set list has pretty much been set for a few shows and the boys are now working on those add in songs that will be sprinkled about the tour. Two new songs added "Elevation" and "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" have both been added to the set list after appearing on the Roxy set list.

Many questioned if the the band could support a multi day set within the same city and the boys answered back with a blasting visual outstanding show that proved that the band can pull though any issue and continue to  perform without missing a beat.

Now we have heard fans start to call this "THE CURSED" tour we have to say that is just not the case.

Life has movement, Just as the band has movement. Focus on the music. Leave the rest of the stuff behind.

Two more show and the boys move on to Denver. 

New Year Brings New Music and More

The year is coming to a close and this surely was an interesting year.  We have had our share of rumor stories, release dates, tour dates and push back dates and yet it all seemed to work out in the end. 

The album release was interesting, who would have thought about releasing an album for free worldwide on iTunes would have caused such a stir among music fans.

Next we had a scheduled appearance on "The Tonight Show" canceled because Bono was tooling around Central Park and no one seemed to notice. The Edge said it was  because he was disguised as a Hasidic Jew.

Which later was proven untrue.  This week filming the next video, it seemed a bit to noisy for the locals and yet production remained on schedule.   Now we heard that Songs of Experience  will be released early next year. No idea how they plan to release it.

We at U2TOURFANS have been busy too. We have redesigned our website to be more of an interactive place for fans to be able to engage in community interaction with other fans. We launched our forum community both versions now available. The community is rather small right now however we do expect it to grow.  We also made a call out for our tour street team to support the shows coming up. You still have time to sign up and be apart of the fun.   Our tour pages have been built and ready to publish tour news by location. 

We do have to announce that we have reached a major mile stone. We have had over 10 Million interactive U2 fans engaged during the year. This was outstanding ! Finally we have been working on something pretty big for next year.  We believe this will put all our properties together in a single easy to use environment.  We have made some new partners over the years and we believe that we are ready to launch the next phase of U2TOURFANS.  We hope you come along for the ride.  

Cheers Mates,  May the season be a blessing to you and your family and may you find joy and peace within each tune you play.

U2's 2015 European Tour, Launchs from Turin

Reports are coming that U2 may launch their 2015 world tour from Turin.  Its not surprise that U2 really enjoyed the Turin dates that the last time around.

Now the talks are early and of course fluid until confirmation comes. The tour is expected to launch September 2015 and go on for about a year of so. The boys will arrive in Turin a few months ( ah we say weeks) a head for rehearsals for two different types of shows.

The new tour would have to be home at Pala Alpitour. They would be provided for two nights in each city, two different shows for a concert that would cross over two evenings. 

Psst U2 North America Dates

The boys should be out on tour next May or early June 2015 right after the Hockey plays offs and NBA should be all wrapped up by that time.  Starting dates are still fluid as the our friends in Live Nation Global touring work the routing of the band out we can expect to see some announcement and possible ticket sales around 11/22/14 with pre-sale starting  sooner. Now of course this could all fall apart without warning. Its fluid we said so expect change
