U2 Asked Glastonbury 2011

U2 have been offered the chance to headline next year’s Glastonbury festival after the Irish rockers were forced to pull out of this year’s event.

Now the celebrated music festival’s organiser, Michael Eavis, has invited the Achtung Baby chart toppers to appear in 2011, the Express reports.

Lady Gaga and the Rolling Stones are also rumoured for top slots.

U2 Turin news

Rehearsals for 10 concerts could start as early as today or Wednesday. This is a pretty long length of time of time between the start of rehearsals and the first date of the leg August 6th that makes it about 10 days. This has happened before. However in this case we expect it because of some new songs, and of course allowing Bono a chance to ease back into the mix of a live show.  The bands security has said that we could expect rehearsals to start on Tuesday. Let the rumors begin.

Thanks to a couple of web savvy U2 fans we have a link for the stadium webcam. Currently not much has been happening however we do expect it to get interesting soon.  Stadium webcam  sits on top of the Stadio Olimpico.

Hey we heard from our friends in Chile and according to the state newspaper La Tercera they report that U2 will perform at the Estadio Nacional in March 2011 and also Brazil, Argentina and we heard Peru however it is all just a rumor. The newspaper claims that tickets will go on sale in September.

New Songs > It’s not the first time that the boys have stopped off the tour to record some tunes. We have heard and checked out Black Rock Studios in Greece and some recording sessions have been booked.  Now we cannot confirm this so we still a rumor. Also we did notice that U2GIGS has reported as well as a couple of fans sites so as we like to say. Rumors may become facts and facts never become rumors, so let’s wait.

U2 Offical Tour Announcement Coming

We could not believe the news when we heard this earlier this morning. U2 will officially announce dates for Australian leg in August. 

Melbourne’s Hot Breakfast show had got the story from Nui Te Koha who broke the news.


U2 are about to announce their Australian tour for 2011,” said Nui. “This announcement will roll out in August.

The Live Nation production crew has already setup office in OZ so that that can announce the tour in August. All bets on the tour coming summer or early 2011. 

Now this puts the question in some minds that the delayed North American tour should return sometime in June 2011. This part of the story should be considered rumor until we can get the facts from Live Nation. Which to this date has remained silent on any communication with U2 Fans. Most tend to be harsh on Live Nation simply because they feel that they are owed an answer about their tickets.

However what most people seem to miss is that a tour this size requires a stadium but thats not the only part, crew, trucks and planes all have to be available and pre-booked. This was going to take some time. So if we hear something about the delayed North American tour next month, our hats off to Live Nation.
