No U2 Shows in 2004

It doesn’t take a “source close to the band” to know that no new album equals no new tour; however, the Mirror had to confirm the issue with such a source and then pronounce it news. In today’s Ireland edition, the tabloid reports that the band are so far behind schedule on production of the new album, they have decided against touring this year.

The Mirror’s source placed the blame on Bono, saying: “All plans for any live shows this year have been put on the backburner. The simple fact is they haven’t recorded enough songs for the new album. Bono’s been away a lot and that’s caused a few delays.”

The good news is that when the band do complete the album, they will likely tour worldwide (hey, South America, Australia, and Japan!). According to the source, “They want to stage a world tour and play bigger venues than ever after making their last one more intimate.”

  1. Yeah, yeah, yeah, blame Bono, always blame Bono. 😉 Nothing we didn’t know. (g) The upside to this delay is that it’s giving me time to accumulate enough frequent flyer miles in my regular travels so that I can get a free airline ticket to one of those far-flung places U2 might be touring to in 2005-2006… 😀

  3. Today I spoke with Universal Argentina and they said the next U2 tour would include Buenos Aires by the end of 2005. They also said the new album will be released on November of this year.

    SOUNDS GREAT ! ! ! !
    DIOS MIO, QUIERO VOLVER A VERLOS EN RIVER!

  5. Sorry for the OT, but hey celes, any U2-ish activity, like a cover band or something, going on in Buenos Aires the second half of this month? Going to be there for vacation (and is part of my tour miles accumulation strategy (g)).

  7. I was just talking to Bono, and he told me the album is… blah blah, I’m totally not in the mood to be a jerk and pretend I know a lot of stuff that I don’t. 😉

    If the disc hits in November of 2004, I’d imagine they’d be doing promo shit a bit before and after, as opposed to hitting proper venues. It all makes perfect sense. Thankfully the scientists at the Mirror have confirmed this for us.

    Also, I should mention I am quite hyped, and so on and so forth. If they put out an entire disc sounding like “The Fly”, I’ll probably have a girlish fit and cry the next time I see them live.

    Also (part two), I’d quite enjoy seeing a stadium tour. As fun as intimacy is, I’ve always been a fan of epic outdoor spectacles.

  9. terrific! U2 simply sound better in bigger venues. also after popmart “bigger venues than ever” is pretty exciting. and it surely sounds like the energy of the album will fit those big plans!!! very excited!

  11. I agree, give me some arenas, but mix in the stadiums too!! Big music deserves a big venue.

  13. I just spoke with a source close to God, and he said that if one more person tries to blame Bono for a delay in recording, he’s going to make it easier for everyone to stare at the sun by moving the whole big blue marble a lot closer to it! Great work by the Mirror — I eagerly await the weather report from them after they look out the window.

    I hate stadium shows, if I want spectacle, I’ll go to the circus or the Republican National Convention, but at this point, I’ll take a flat bed truck in a K-Mart parking lot. Do your laundry now, because 2005 is spoken for!

  17. You say that no new album means no new tour, but that’s exactly what didn’t happen with popmart. saying that, I don’t think that the boys would be likely to make the same mistake again!!!!

  19. the oldest bono story of all:

    bono buys everyone a pint at the bar, then goes to the toilet. the man next to him notices a certain lack of activity:

    “whats the matter there bono? stage fright?”

  21. I don’t think U2 can 1/2-fill a stadium tour in the States. I personally thought PopMart was a fantastic show — but now more than ever they’re not what a majority of concert ticket-buyers in the States will pay for to fill such large venues. Especially when you think about the ticket price (likely minimum $60.00 for nose-bleed seats). The only way U2 can pack stadiums in the States again is if they head down that sorry road which The Who and Rolling Stones have traveled many, many times: Farewell tours and/or greatest hits tours. And thank God/Bono that the boys said (as well as Mr. McGuinness) that they’d never do a greatest hits tour. I’m still anxious to hear what they put out next and yes, even if they do play stadiums and they are only 1/2 full, I will gladly plunk down whatever it costs. 😉

  23. One correction — the Stones have never done a farewell tour or a greatest hits tour — when it comes to pathetic, you are right about the Who, much to my chagrin. But not the Stones. If a setlist may sound like a greatest hits list, they can’t help it — anymore than U2 can. They know their fans want to hear Satisfaction, Brown Sugar, Jumping Jack Flash. Just like our boys know folks want to hear One, Pride, With or Without You, whatever. Personally, I like the more obscure material, because I’m there for the music, not to relive getting laid in the back of an El Camino with the radio going. But I am in the minority. It’s a tough call for these bands — they’ll draw criticism no matter what setlist decisions they make. If they don’t play a lot of their more commercially-successful songs, a lot of people bitch and moan. And if they do a set heavy on that stuff, they are accused of a greatest hits tour. That’s part of the burden of having a long and deep career. These people are damned if they do and damned if they don’t — look at the joke in the previous post — Bono buys his round and STILL has to put up with a smartass in the john!

    Stones are also touring in 2005, which now complicates my life and finances no end — but to all my boys, I say, whatever plans you make, I WANT A ROOF!!!

  25. I believe what velvetelvis meant about the stones was how they toured for their 40th anniversary, when they released a greatest hits package (40 licks) anyways, i forget who said it (might have been a fan even) but you know that U2 has gone down the road of the who and stones when they open their set with streets…

  27. Actually, 40 Licks is not a greatest hits, but a career retrospective compilation — you know, like U2’s Best Of,? Forty Licks has 4 new tracks, and songs like Not Fade Away, which peaked at #48, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, #42, Happy, #22, Shattered, #31…record enough “hits” with those numbers and you end up detailing Clive Davis’ car for a living.

    I’m making this point about the Stones here because there’s a relevance for U2 that probably won’t be apparent to a lot of people until it is well in the past. The Stones always took a lot of crap for blazing trails, and they still are — they are setting a standard for bands to keep on playing until they drop — the way it was for Muddy, the way it was for all great artists, who didn’t have the unfortunate elements of the spotlight on them like the Stones and U2 do. Don’t lump them in with the Who — the Who have been screwing it up since Moonie died. You can already see how U2 are benefiting from this — contrast the crap the Stones had to endure when they were the age U2 is now with what U2 has to take — U2 has it a lot better, and that didn’t just happen by chance. The press started asking the Stones if this was a “farewell tour” in 1969. Can you imagine anyone saying that to U2, even with all the stupid questions they get asked? There are a lot of interesting correlations, but any resemblance U2 may bear to the Stones in how they handle their career is to U2’s credit, not a sign of their deterioration. I know cynicism is easier, but give it some thought!

  29. true true, though the thing that sets u2 apart is the fact that on the stage it is just the four of them, as opposed to the stones having musicians who aren’t part of the band playing on stage with them, and correct me if i’m wrong but i think they might use backup singers, i know sting does, and that always annoys me, but my point with this is that U2 adapts song for a live setting, sure dallas sometimes plays a little something underneath the stage, but you don’t see a horn section up there doing angels do u? nope they just adapt it to do it without, sorry if i’m rambling its 7 am and i havent slept yet…

  33. Hey U2 also use back up musicians and somtimes vocalist but you never see them. They are hidden below stage. Have you ever seen these documentatories of their shows and see the guys under the stage playing guitar or piano? Just look at the Boston show at the last song, ATYCLB, mysteriously a piano is playing and it sure isn’t the Edge. And it is not prerecorded because they play differently between concerts and the piano makes the adjustments.

    Plus you can blame limo liberal Bono for making his politics more important than the his fan’s need for U2. A typical, liberal for you, claiming to be doing good but in fact just benefiting himself.

  39. Geez I cannot remember the name of the song!! The closer for the last tour
    and 4th song on the album.

    Hey, I have been listening to a lot of U2 bootlegs lately and Bono has been great singing but his guitar playing sucks!! He ruins any song he attempts to play in, except Kite which surprisingly he sounds good. I think acoustic he can play but really his electric guitar playing really is horrible and he can’t even fake it good. I am watching him barely strumming the strings. It is rather pathetic to see him do this. Someone should start a petition to stop him. I am sure Edge would be the first to sign it:-)

  41. Well, as Bono himself has said “I want to play the guitar really badly, and I do play the guitar really badly”. You can crap on him as much as you want, but he seems to have covered that waterfront himself very well. But clearly, he can write great songs on the guitar, and there’s nothing “pathetic” about it.

    BACK TO THE TOPIC: Here is my wishful hope for the week: the reason there aren’t enough songs? It’s going to be a double album!

  43. Well let’s see here, he admits he can’t play and thus admits he is hurting the band when he plays so awful on stage. I have heard him actually ruin some excellent recordings and take away from the Edge’s performance. This just shows how selfish this guy is. How come when Bono complained that Adam could not sing it was ok to take the mic away from him. Just goes to show, as I have always said, he is the best lead singer and a great song writer but he is one of the most egocentric and selfish bastards around.

  47. It’s always nice to read these never ending conversations between fans and not so big fans.
    I’ve heard numerous bootlegs where the piano in “Walk On” (yeah, that wasn’t easy to remember ehh Kelly) wasn’t on time. As far as I know, Edge triggers most of the samples. And of course, there’s always someone backstage to correct things if they go wrong.

    About Bono being egocentric and all, you just could be right. But that doesn’t mean the other bandmembers have nothing to say. If it were as bad as you make it sound, there would be no U2 anymore 🙂

    But of course, Kelly, you could always start writing for The Mirror…

  49. There is no U2 for about 3 years, in between tours.

    I am willing to volunteer my services as back-up singer for the band ONLY if I am kept UNDER the stage.

  51. Hey its not my fault, Larry wants to go and see Euro 2004 in Portugal, Edge is too busy reading all your mails and playing his play station. Adam has discoved a whole new spoon collection. God is also very busy helping out his new film and Mel Gibson, so we will get the album out soon enough, for now have a nice Easter.

  53. How about issuing a “real” double live album of their best stuff over the years? Not the rattle hum crap of half live stuff and some of that live stuff was covers and obscure songs!! A real ripoff of a live album promotion that was. DO IT U2 BECAUSE MANY OF YOUR FANS AT THIS POINT ARE NOT EVEN THAT INTERESTED IN LIVE ALBUM ANY MORE .

  55. Yes Bernhard, wouldn’t that be cool? My other wishful thought for the week (am I allowed two?) is that their third “Best Of”, will be all live material. I really do think that. And a DVD to go with it, including tons of footage we’ve never seen. We know, after all, that U2 record and film everything. They’ve got to release some of that at some point, no?

  59. I’m sure that a live U2 release would do really well. Polls at other sites consistently indicate big enthusiasm for this. U2’s studio output is great, but live, they are magic.
    (Just out of curiosity, Kelly, what are these “excellent recordings” that Bono’s guitar playing has “actually ruined”?)

  61. You can sugar-coat it all you want but the fact remains: U2 will have waited FIVE YEARS between official releases.

    Most fans give them the benefit of the doubt and tell us U2 is being “creative”

    I call the delay for what it really is: laziness.

    I love the band but face the facts. They are far less prolific than they used to be. The hunger isn’t there anymore.

  63. Talking about live recordings of U2
    I recieved following email via U2 talk:
    *Rumor: Interference.com has heard that U2 and Apple Computer Corporation are possibly working together in the not so distant future because U2 are planning on selling songs from past and future live performances/concerts on Apple’s iTunes music store! (3.22.04) I read this today. Metallica who are curently touring have set up
    a website to sell soundboard recordings of their current gigs. They have varied their
    setlist vigerously so that fans have an even greater choice of shows and setlists to choose from. The music will be available in MP3 format
    for $9.95 or FLAC files ($12.95). Each show will also come with a printable booklet and labels for fans who want to burn the CD.I think this is an excellent idea, and would be supurb if U2 did this on their next tour!! If nothing else it would mean that a fan could buy the actual gig they went to, in fantastic sound quality!!

    I’m not sure if it’s true or not, but if they do release live material in the futur, i’m will buy it, because i’m very interested in stuff like this.

    And yes, a best of with only life songs would be superb!

    I’m not sure if it’s true or not, but if they do release live material in the futur, i’m will buy it, because i’m very interested in stuff like this.

    And yes, a best of with only life songs would be superb!

  65. kelly, for someone who obviously hates U2, you sure do spend a hell of a lot of time at their fansites.

  67. Oh I could not possibly be a U2 fan!! Because i don’t kiss the feet that Bono walks on, like you edgefan (You sheep). I have made many compliments to U2’s music on this site, but God forbid you say something that does not kiss the ass of your god Bono then I am not a U2 fan. I have some very good soundboard recordings of U2 that obviously show your god, Bono, can’t play guitar if his life depended on it. I consider it disgraceful that Edge’s fine playing has to be corrupted by this guitar no talent whofor some reason has such a ego that he is willing to let the quality of the music suffer so this ego maniac can look like he is playing the guitar. Well why doesn’t he let Adam sing!!! he was the first guy to pull the mic from Adam when his singing was not good enough but the Lord Bono must have his f#$%#$#ing guitar. What a hypocrite, but what do u expect from him. By the way, I have a recording of Bono blasting the US for getting involved in the business of other countries. this was 15 years ago. Now this jerk off spends all his time blasting the same country for not getting involved enough. What a joke he is.
