Rumor going around this week has the Irish mega-band U2 playing the Triangle sometime this year, possibly at Duke University's Wallace Wade Stadium -- which would be the first rock concert there since the Rolling Stones in 2005. Unfortunately, however, that appears to be wishful thinking. Word from Duke's athletic department is that the date the band wanted wouldn't fit between football home dates.

Of course, Wallace Wade isn't the only stadium in the Triangle. But there's nothing definite to report elsewhere, either. There have reportedly been conversations about UNC-Chapel Hill's Kenan Stadium; but the home football schedule is apparently not cooperating there, either. And a representative from NC State's athletic department was unaware of any plans to bring U2 to Carter-Finley Stadium.

So: Don't be surprised if you wind up having to schlep over to Charlotte again.

I'm just going to wait patiently for official tour dates before I freak out too much, since odds are I'll be driving at least an hour and a half to see them. (I live in Sarasota, FL...closest they'd hit is possibly Tampa.)

Damn. I'm in Charlotte right now, but unfortunately I'll have moved halfway across the country by the time they do the American leg of the tour. >.

U2 in Charlotte

Charlotte is due for a U2 stadium show. Popmart skipped here, and we got one of the earliest ZooTV shows on the first leg of their tour, before it went stadium-sized.

I'd like to see a Williams-Brice Stadium date at University of South Carolina, but i do recall their ZooTV show had the poorest attendance of the whole tour.
