Why the summer tour was cancelled....

Bono's No to Go-Go
U2 Star Cancels Tour to Rest

By Paul Martin

U2 have ditched plans for concerts in Europe this summer because Bono is exhausted.

I can reveal that the band have decided to stay in the recording studio instead and give their lead singer a break from his gruelling schedule. The rockers were set to perform a number of one-off outdoor concerts including a show in Belfast.

But after months of touring and jetting around the world on humanitarian missions Bono has been ordered to take it easy for a while.

A group insider said: "There's only so much that any human being can do and Bono needs some time off.

"In the last month alone he has been in America, Africa, Ireland and the U.K.

"He wants to spend some time with his family.

"The summer concerts were never set in stone so it's not as if they have to make any big cancellations.

"They have had a meeting and decided it would be better to go back into the studio and write new material."

U2 have performed over 100 concerts in the past year.

The star has already written six songs for the new album and material could be released by November.

Fans were hoping for more live concerts this summer after the huge success of the Elevation tour.

But U2 manager Paul McGuinness confirmed that the concerts would not go ahead.

He added: "They will not be touring Europe this summer. Instead they are spending their time in the studio working on new material for a possible release later this year."

Last month the Edge hinted that they would stage a concert in Belfast after missing the city on the Elevation world tour.

He said: "We would love to do a show there if we can get a big promoter behind it. It's a definite possibility."
Strokin' It!

"Live In Slane?"

There are reports coming from u2france.com and various sites that a Dreamchaser-Produced possible TV/DVD/VHS of U2 Live From Slane 2001 is in post-production now. Hope this will be a complete show without any of the unecessary song edits that took place in the Boston DVD. Heck! I'm just hoping this footage gets to see the light of day somehow/some way...

Just a reminder

Whenever you post pictures that are directly from Otto's website, you are almost always making him pay more money.

Why is this?

Simple. It's called bandwidth. (Stop giggling.) Bandwidth is offered in limited quantities for people who own domains, and have to pay more when it goes over the limit. And when people post pictures that are directly from his site, he usually has to pay more money.

How can you avoid this?

Save the pictures to your computer by right-clicking on them. Upload them to webshots.com, or any free webhost except...

Angelfire.com
Geocities.com
Tripod.com

.. and a few others, so make sure you test it first.

Thanks :D

Hey everyone--

I am loving all the pictures lately and really have no problem with them, but I'm wondering if the males in our midst may be getting a little tired of them and miss the days of discussion of the band and their music.

What would everyone think about starting a "side project" community that's primarily for picture posting/drooling? If you like the idea, do you have any suggestions for names? u2photos, u2girls, ????
Where I belong

Can you see it?



Ok I registered for free webspace, but I want to see if it lets me share pictures. Since I now have that pic in my cache, it'll show up for me, but can one of you tell me if it works?

Thanks!

p.s. just trying to avoid taking up other people's bandwidth from now on :-)
