U2 Possible Tour Stops in Peru, Chile, Brazil, Argentina

New York City: The newspaper "La Tercera De Chile" has awoken many U2 fans within South America, breaking news reports suggests that Live Nation has already signed agreements from around South America. Which at this time can not be confirmed.

The South/Latin American tour would be part of the current tour "The Joshua Tree" expectations are that this could come later in the year,  the paper suggests more towards the end of the year.

Makes sense South/Latin America would be in the summertime, and the weather for stadium shows would be better in most venues also for tour routing. As details develop, we will let you know. For now, let's just chill a bit and see what happens.


U2 Tours the World 2015

U2 has been working very close guarded on an up coming tour to begin in 2015 Sources close to the band have suggested that the boys will head out and do a full world tour with stops in some countries that they missed the last time around. Such as Peru, Chile and Argentin. Bono visited Peru about a year or so ago and informed the fans that he loved the country and is looking forward to coming back. Now a posting from UM (South America) suggested that South America is big on the tour list.  Now no details have been confirmed and the boys are out marketing their new release so we do not expect to hear much about the tour for at least a few weeks. What we do know is that this is a much different tour and that we can expect some cities to have two or three night dates. Expect MSG to be at least 3 nights. More to follow as we dig into the details. 

Argentina 3rd Show Difference

The reviews have all come in U2 was fired up last night in La Plata – The last of 3 shows as part of the 360 Tour. The Claw will be packed up and sent on its way later today ( well it will take about three days )

Leon Gieco and Francisca Valenzuela joined the last time during the show in Chile a couple of days easlier.
Gieco sang backing vocals and guitar by Bono “All I ask of God,” in an emotional block that also included a prayer from factory own “I Still Have not Found What I’m looking for.”
It was the latest of several surprises that left the Irish in Argentina. The first was the inclusion of, “Even Better Than The Real Thing”, a song from Achtung Baby The boys had not played the song for several years.
Beyond the basic set list is more or less unchanged;a U2 sought to create nuances in the three that shows at La Plata that made each a unique experience for fans.

Last night, the main surprise was the entry of Gieco on stage, but there were more changes. The classic “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”“Bad”, a jewel of the album The Unforgettable Fire. And for the first time “Magnificent”, was not included.
There was one failure in these three U2 concerts, the band did not play any song from their 1987 album, Rattle and Hum. But for the more than 150 000 fans who filled the stadium for three nights everyone enjoyed the show and wondered a bit if this was the last time they will get to see Bono and the boys.
