U2's Runner Show, Off To Berlin Now

Stockhom: When a tour schedule is this tight the room for error tends to be very slim. The band performed their forth show last night in Stockhom and now its off to Berlin.  Right after the final downbeat the crew swung into LOAD OUT mode and startedbreaking everything down. The exit for a show this size should be about 3 hrs.

Most of the time the crew breaks a show down pretty quick because the band and most of the management has already left the building this allows to the crew to push it out the door fast.

Last nights show was the replacement for the "security breach" on Sunday and as of today still no word on who this "security guard" was or if in fact any details.  Due to the rescheduled many fans were not able to make the return and the area was pretty much empty.

The upper deck was totally closed off and fans had a chance to push forward. Bono apologized to the fans and stated he had no idea how many fans really traveled to Stockhom to see them. 

The set list had a couple of returns "The Electric Co", "Desire" and "Angel Of Harlem"  and to wrap up the evening "Bad" and "40" 

The best video capture goes out to Matt from U2gigs.  He has always had some of the best videos from around the tour.  Well fans its off to Berlin. We will be on site taking photos and looking for you.

New York: U2 fans will have to wait a bit longer for the next album however not as long as this last album. Bono announced that the "Songs of Experience" will be released in 2016.  Its the follow up to the 2014 release "Songs of Innocence" which all Itunes account holders got as a gift for free.

"Songs of Experience" is pretty much baked and ready however the band will invest the time in fine tuning the next release and 2016 will allow the band to tour with new music and change up the current set list with additional tunes.

Expect the U2 marketing machines to really come up with something different and most likely not a download.

Bono has confirmed that U2 will be playing “Innocence and Experience” shows in Ireland at the end of November.

“We are coming home... it was really hard to figure out a way of doing it, but we just had to make it happen,” he told The Irish Times after coming off stage on Saturday night in Turin following the band’s second show in the city.

The city or cities they will play in, the exact dates and venue names will be made public soon as well as information about ticketing for the shows.

The difficulty for the band in playing Ireland was that the stage configuration of the current tour is simply too big to fit into any Irish venue.

“We found a way to reformat the show, to literally rebuild it for the Irish shows,” says Bono.

“It got to the stage where we just had to tell our people “You have to make this happen, you have to make this work, this is where we are from and we have to bring the tour home.”

“I am so happy we are bringing this home,” adds Bono. “These Irish shows will be like an Irish wedding. It is always tricky planning a wedding – who sits besides who could ruin it!”
