'No Line on the Horizon' @ 02:06 pm

arcmorality:
This just popped into my inbox.. from u2.com..

No Line On The Horizon, the new studio album from U2, will be released on Monday 2nd March 2009.

Written and recorded in various locations, No Line On The Horizon is the group’s 12th studio album and is their first release since the 9 million selling album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, released in late 2004.

Sessions for No Line On The Horizon began last year in Fez, Morocco, continued in the band’s own studio in Dublin, before moving to New York’s Platinum Sound Recording Studios, and finally being completed at Olympic Studios in London.

The album calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite.

I was lucky in 2005 to see them twice. Quite the experience and I can't wait to repeat it ;)

But I'm sure they will tour at some point. The question is probably going to be when.

I've had bad luck with concert dates. But I live in NYC area now so as long as they do MSG.... Also hoping to see them doing some album promo here.

For the first time, I'm not that excited really. I hope they come up with something, quite different to the last two efforts. Which I just struggle to listen to now. Pop was released March 3rd, so maybe March will be a good omen!

I would have imagined they will tour the UK & Ireland later in 2009. But who knows?

There's no reason why you can't do Scotland & Ireland on the same trip. Only a 40 minute flight to Glasgow from Dublin. U2 shows in Glasgow are always special.

I hope you make it over to Scotland! You'll love it, though maybe I'm abit biassed? ;)

They usually do Europe in the summer months, because they're doing outdoor venues there.

I'm guessing they'll either do a quick US leg before Europe in the summer, with perhaps an extended leg in the fall, or they'll do a longer tour in the fall. Probably the former, especially if they start closer to release date. All just guesses, but it doesn't seem like they'd wait a full year after the album to get over to Europe.
