There isn't anything scheduled yet... but everyone is hoping for 2005 after the album is released.

I have heard hear and elsewhere rumours that the new album comes out in the fall, with a world tour to follow!

I don't see U2 stopping touring anytime soon, they clearly love doing it. That's evident in everything they've done.

I hope you get to see them next tour, I saw three shows last tour, and they were absolutely phenomenal

U2 rocks in concert!! I saw them in Charlotte on the Elevation tour and then managed to finagle front-row tickets for the concert in Atlanta the next night... god, the glory days of college! (Sorry I'm a little tipsy right now) But they are great and I'm hoping to see them again. Because I want to be a groupie!!

Slightly off topic, I know but, when I saw your user icon, I had to comment... Back when U2 first started and Adam had the fro and the glasses, my friends and I gave him a couple nicknames, the best ones being either "The Gay Librarian" or "The Disco Librarian".

Silly I know but I just thought I'd mention it...

U2 are being lined up to rock 200,000 fans at Phoenix Park next summer, the Irish Mirror can reveal.

The Dublin supergroup will stage the record-breaking shows in August as part of a huge tour.

Madonna was originally approached to perform but said she had no plans to tour next year.

So U2 have stepped in and vowed to stage the biggest show ever in Ireland.

A source close to the group said yesterday: "They will perform two nights at Phoenix Park in front of 100,000 fans on each occasion. It's going to be the biggest music event of its kind ever staged in Ireland and it's perfect for U2. They are really excited about it and will have the new album out by then so it's perfect timing."

Robbie Williams sold out this Phoenix Park spectacular to 135,000 earlier this month and fans proclaimed the venue a hit.

Bono and the lads have been in the studio recording material for a new album which is set for release early next year.

A world tour is also in the planning stages although no official dates have been confirmed.

The source added: "This will be the biggest thing U2 have ever done. It may seem like a long way away but two concerts of this size take a long time to plan. It's all in the preliminary stages but U2 are up for it and everything is in place to make it happen. They want to have their biggest ever concert on their home territory."

U2 last thrilled their Irish fans when they headlined Slane in August 2001.

The band set a new record for the highest grossing tour in America and sold out 70 venues around the world.

The source added: "The last tour was mainly indoor arenas, this time they are going to go back to the open air stadium concerts.

"However, the Phoenix Park shows will be the biggest they have ever done. It's going to be a magical night for everyone."

What I have read is the tour is a definite, and the feeling is to start with a leg of small venues (Arenas) and then move into stadiums for a second leg. Apparently Bono and Edge want to do the "smaller" 70,000 people gigs, while Clayton and Larry want to do the larger ones. This is their compromise. I've seen them in both venues and while the spectacle of the large venues is cool, the ability to feel like you could reach out and shake Bono's hand is even better.

Meanwhile if you have a chance, I would say go check out the U2 Go Home: Live at Slane Castle. This is one of the best performances I have seen from them anywhere, first hand or otherwise.

Don't worry, you'll get your show and you won't be disappointed. . .

Last I heard, in terms of promoting the upcoming album, they want to focus on the larger venues versus the more intimate concert spots of the Elevation Tour (although I'd prefer the latter). I think there was talk of another blow-out tour like the Pop tour but I don't know if I would appreciate it as much; the downside to all this technologuy and "pyrotechnics" is that, in my opinion, it takes away from the actual performance and U2, from what I viewed, are such electric performers that they don't need all that additional razzle-dazzle.

I *really* hope they do some more massive shows with technology and pyrotechnics. I've never had a chance to experience that kind of U2 show and I'm desperate to!  I was at an Elevation concert and being stuck at the far end of the arena with crappy acoustics was not much fun at all, since there wasn't really anything for me to *look* at. 8/  At least if it had been a razzle-dazzle stadium gig, the atmosphere would probably have made up for the distance...

There are actually people out there who think they aren't going to tour again? I think there's going to be three more tours at the very least. My other thoughts have already been expressed in previous comments.

Hee hee, I'd say the general consensus is yes, and I'd agree. After that unofficial official announcement of the 18 month tour a couple weeks ago, I'm getting way too excited considering how far away it is.

But yes. You'll get a chance! Those boys are very good to us. :)

Hell yes!

I'm patiently (trying to) awaiting the day they decide to tour again. I've seen U2 several times live and the sooner I can experience one of their concerts again, the better! ^_^
