-- Public sale is on MONDAY 16th at 9am.

Thoughts? Are you excited? Disappointed that it's not the SOE tour? Will you be going to see it?

I'm surprised....
It seems like a bit of a backward move...
I was there the first time round at Wembly Stadium and it was one of the best gigs I've been to but I'd rather see them doing new stuff.
What are your thoughts?

It's definitely strange for them, and I'd been fully expecting SOE and its promotional tour this year, so I do feel a bit deflated that we're getting this instead. Maybe if it were an Achtung Baby / ZooTV anniversary tour rather than TJT, I would be more excited about it!

That said, I love the idea of hearing Red Hill Mining Town, One Tree Hill and others for the first time, and I'm pleased that they're returning to stadiums and a normal stage layout (I couldn't see anything for most of the IE show). So I will definitely be going to the London show(s). :)

Yeah, I admire them for their creative ideas with staging but at the end of the day I prefer them when it's just the 4 of them with a simple stage.

Being Australian, I will just be happy to get any sort of tour...

I am SUPERexcited!!! It's been far too long since I've seen them, and The Joshua Tree is my favourite album!

Not since way back in 2009! That was the last time they've been here.

Alright I guess but a cash grab.

I think its kind of a cool idea but in the end all this is a simple cash grab. Bruce Springsteen did this last year with The River. I thought that was kind of cool because I am getting into his music so all of those songs were "new" songs to me.

They have had a year to record SOE. (really if you think about it they had 4 years to record SOI and SOE and what other SO album after words.) And Edge saying its almost finished but we want to write some new songs because how the world is today. So while you are waiting and we did say we were going out on tour in 2017 lets tour behind a 30 yr old album. I bet later this fall they will do a SOE tour.

Early on last year the Rolling Stones recorded a blues album in 3 days and put it out in december. So it does not take a yr + to record an album
