Hey guys, I have a question. Today my friend comes up to me and tells me how he heard on 3 different news stations last night that U2 was posponing their tour because of some family members in the Edge's family beeing very ill... and that he would be sueing the tabloids for finding out this information and giving out "personal, family information." There was nothing on U2.com about it so I was just wondering what the heck it was about.

The first month of the tour had to be postponed. Its quite old news now, as the tour has been announced. Those dates that were "cancelled" will be played at the end of the year.

Nobody really knows why this was the case. Only got paper speculation to go on.

Apparently it's not speculation which is why The Edge's lawyers are pushing for a permanent injunction on the grounds of privacy.

This seems to be an article on the topic:

Well, the latest bit is an update so you might not be that behind. Also, since the original story was pulled and the full tour dates weren't announced until after all this, it's not surprising you didn't hear all the details surrounding it. And of course, the official story told was that there were problems with the tour routing ;-)
