When will U2 go on another tour, I wonder. I didn't get to go to the last tour. I heard that music was wonderful.

Nothing is certain. They are working on an album but its not even close to being done. They're still goofin' off. It'll be at least a year or so til they tour....

It looks like it will be a few years. I do regret not going.

Well, they won't tour until they put out a new album, and even then, they won't tour until a few months after the album comes out. Now that a 2007 album doesn't look like happening, this is likely to be what will happen:

September/October 2008: Lead single (in time for the February 2009 Grammy's)
October/November 2008: Album (just after the cutoff, so it makes the February 2010 Grammy's!)
March 2009: Tour begins

Apart from Pop/Popmart (and with the obvious exclusion of Zooropa due to its circumstances), this has been the pattern since Achtung Baby/ZooTV.

That seems like a pretty reasonable time frame. I can't imagine they could put together a good album any sooner than next summer, so I'd say they won't launch a tour until next fall at the earliest, and it wouldn't shock me if we had to wait until the first quarter of '09 for an album, which would mean the summer of '09 for a tour.

U2 could certainly tour without a new album to support, but I like that they take breaks. I missed Elevation, so I had to go eight years between U2 shows. The next tour is always worth the wait.

The Vertigo Tour was amazing.

I think a new album will come out sometime next year, with a tour shortly to follow.

They have a habit of taking longer than expected on their albums. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
