From Melbourne’s Herald Sun….

U2 which played in outdoor stadiums for it’s last two world tours, will take its live extravanganza indoors when it plays Melbourne this year.

But intimacy with the Irish supergroup comes with a cost. “There is no denying the U2 tour is going into the arena at a very high price,” promotor Michael Coppel said. “But essentially, it’s an 18 truck tour, with 65 people on the road, presenting what could be a stadium production for a lot for acts, indoors.

“Nobody is doing it for philanthropy. Everybody is doing it to cover their costs and income from being musicians.” An official announcement for the tour is expected in the next few weeks.
