A new RUMOUR to add to your “When will they play live again?” pile:’s Rumours section reports on a column in the UK’s The Mirror that claims the following: U2 are also in secret negotiations to play a number of concerts around the world and showcase new material they have been working on.

A source said: “There is a very strong chance we could see U2 back on the stage early next year.”

The source added: “Bono is a very busy guy and even when he’s not working for U2 he is usually around the world doing something. He’s anxious to get back on the stage because they had such great fun last time. They don’t want to leave it another three years like they have done on previous tours. At this stage it looks like there will be shows in February or March.”
