I was just thinking of something. All That You Can't Leave Behind came out in 2000. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb came out in 2004. So, by that logic, The Album That Will Be For Now Known As U2 12 will be out in 2008, with a tour following in 2009.

Boy do I hope I'm wrong.

The way the guys have been talking (specifically Bono in the Rolling Stone interview from a few months back and at the Grammys), they're looking to have a new record out by the end of this year. Supposedly, there might be something with Kanye West, as they have said they will be "doing something" while touring together in Australia.

I certainly hope so.

Yeah, just like they were going to "strike while the iron is hot" after ATYCLB. *g*

I wish they actually WOULD surprise us with another Zooropa-style quickie sometime. That'd be very cool!  I think they've become too perfectionist for that kind of stunt now, though...

Kayne West and U2, making an album or a single together?

Wow, how many more people with Messianic complexes can we jam in a recording studio? Is Scott Stapp available?

Unfortunately that's what I expect, really. They always say they want to 'get right into the studio' but it seems like even when they do, not much really get serious for awhile.

Nope, that sounds about right.

The best I'd hope for is early 2008 instead of October or November of that year...Atomic Bomb took longer to record than most albums (probably equally due to lack of focus and lack of physical presence by Bono). If they came in with a solid set of songs and ideas to work with, I could see them having an album out end of 2007/early 2008, but definitely not before then.

heh, good point.

when I realize I've been in school for the last 20 years of my life, it makes me wonder if I'll really be good at anything else once I'm done this spring.

I've got $45,000 in student loans to pay back, though, so I better know how to do something marketable! ;)

Yep this would be about right. Late 07 at the very earliest. Its not as if they need to rush anything out. Plus I doubt the families would appreciate another tour so quick. Every four years probably works for them.

The thing that amazes me about their tours is that U2 only spends one leg of the tour in Europe. They spend more time here in the States than anywhere else.

That's been the way since the Joshua Tree tour. America is where the money is. We have to like it or lump it I guess.

Still, we in Europe still have all the best bands. More to music than U2. :)

Hey! We have some really great bands here! I mean, we responsible for Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys.

...yeah, sorry 'bout that. :)

Their tours just surprise me. Like the fact that they did eight shows at Madison Square Garden, seven at the Boston Garden. I was surprised they didn't do a stadium tour when they were here during the first leg.

I know, but I suppose I can't complain seeing as that enabled me to see two shows in Boston :)

But I'm not surprised they didn't do stadiums in the States. Aside from the big U2 cities Boston/NYC/Chicago and a few cities in CA. U2 wouldn't fill stadiums in the US. Stadiums shows are the norm here in Europe so it was the way to go here.

Sounds logical. And far away, but hey, it's already 2006!

I've noticed that Sting's the same way... he puts out an album every 4 years, and then when he tours, he's always in Indiana or Ohio in July (which is when my birthday is).

Whoohoo presents for me, hehe ;)
