  1. I wonder if security concerns are a contributing factor. They have received a lot of publicity in the past 6 months, both positive and negative.

  9. see, Bono and the lads just want to rest up a little so they can have a blast of a tour when they come to Australia in our summer! *forever the optimistic*

  11. This is great news! Now they can concentrate on getting the next album out – hopefully by winter ’02 or spring ’03. If they toured this summer, it’d be another 2+ years before we something new.

  19. Geez….. I think I know how this rumour started. I think that it’s a combination of several rumors. That Interference thread go the information from a Zootopia thread. The Zootopia poster cited this Usenet posting as his source: http://groups.google.com/groups?q=%22u2+breaking+up%22&hl=en&scoring=d&selm=1994Feb17.165802.837357%40sue.cc.uregina.ca&rnum=9 ………. Unfortunately, that posting was from 1994. I think that he read that old post, combined it with the Courtney Cox rumor and assumed that since there was no summer tour that Adam is leaving the band. ……. SHEESH!!!! There’s no solid basis to this rumor. I think that U2.com put that tour notice on their site to squash any supposed date leaks. …… READ THIS: “If U2 have any tour dates to announce in the future you can be sure U2.Com will bring them to you as soon as they are officially confirmed.” It sounds to me as if they’re saying that U2.com is the final tour authority and NOT the sites that post touring rumors. Imho, THE BAND IS NOT BREAKING UP. >=/

  21. Rumors happen all the time. They looked happy enough at the Grammys. Are you telling me that they’re going to come off a high like that only to break up? Critically, with all of the awards they’ve won, this is probably the best year in their career. (Joshua tree took the money home more than the awards.) ………. Board posters will not be the first to know of a breakup. The legit new media will, after the band natch.

  23. Eh, I’ve heard that rumor…it’s so lame a rumor given all that the band members have been through over the years, that I immediately discarded it as nonsense…

  25. Gee, we are living in sorry times. U2 could be breaking up?? Sorry to say it WILL happy sooner than later. I guess we have to brace oursleves. I’d like to see Bono become a Sinatra and sing in seedy places like Las Vegas until he is 80.

  27. Bob downe? Is that your real name??

  29. I don’t know if you know but U2 performed a Ramones cover exclusively for the NME. But Stuart Morgan was on bass, and in front of him, a cardboard cut-out of Adam. The boyband 5ive used a cardboard cut-out of on of their members on a video just before he “officially” left and the Beatles also allegedly used a cardboard cut-out of Paul McCartney at a meeting shortly before the split. THE SIGNS ARE THERE!!

  31. The band used a cardboard cut-out of Adam when they announced the Elevation tour! I hope they still go through with that one.

  33. Well they did that NME taping in Dublin…Adam has not been spending a load of time in Dublin unless they’re working for the past few years…this was probably something that wasn’t worth him coming in for. And yeah, they used the same cut-out to announce Elevation, that worked out pretty well…(g)

    Yes you can, and we don’t mind. Just realise that the more offensive this site gets, the more it will be banned by Nanny software. For example, it’s already impossible to read this site from various net cafes in London.
