"Although spending a couple of months a year [in Ireland] is only a vague impression of home, any place else would seem like work."
Welcome to @U2 Tours (beta)!
We're still in the process of moving everything from U2tours.com to our new home here on @U2. As you use the site, you might find some bugs and you'll probably find missing information -- particularly setlist details like snippets. We'd love your help as we continue to work on the site! Please see the "welcome guide" web pages for an overview of the new site, as well as details on how to join the effort to finish building the site -- either casually or as a member of the @U2 staff. Thanks!
PS - those concerts listed over on the right in the "Next 5 Shows" section? Fake. We needed something in the database to test what future concert listings look like. Sorry if we got your hopes up.
Latest U2 Concert
July 24, 2014
Bono leads a small group singalong during a private party at Club 55.
Latest U2 Tour News & Rumors
It probably doesn't get much more posh than this, does it? Bono took to the stage Wednesday night to sing "Stand By Me" with Julian Lennon. It happened at the inaugural Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala on a vineyard near St. Tropez, France.
The event (and Leo's foundation) raised money to protect oceans, forests, wildlands and endangered species.
No word if Bono sang any other songs, but there are two short Instagram clips from the performance that we'll embed below.
Concert promoter Denis Desmond says U2 is in talks to play again at Dublin's Croke Park in 2016.
Desmond, the co-founder of MCD Productions, was on Today FM's Ray D'Arcy Show on Wednesday morning. The conversation focused on the recent mess where Garth Brooks canceled five shows at the stadium, but near the end of the interview, they looked ahead to future shows.
D'Arcy: What about next year, would you be in talks with people for Croke Park gigs for next year?
Desmond: Yes, we would be.
D'Arcy: Would U2 be in the frame for that?
Desmond: No, not next year, but the year after.
The conversation can be heard online (at least temporarily) on the Today FM website.
U2 has played Croke Park 10 times dating back to 1985, including three shows in 2009 as part of the 360 tour.
