U2 Experience + Innocence Tour **Discussion Only // No Ticket Sales or Requests**

Time for a new thread since the Joshua Tree Tour thread was going way off topic.

The 2018 North American leg of the band's Experience + Innocence Tour kicks off on 2 May at Tulsa, Oklahoma's BOK Center and makes stops at 15 North American arenas before concluding on 29 June at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center. European dates have yet to be announced.

reckon it could follow the I&E model and Euro dates will be Autumn/Winter 2018 with dates in the SSE Arena Belfast and 3Arena likely. They will prob bring the tour to Asia/Down under and South America too.

Possibly Irish and Euro dates could be July/Aug/ Sep, we just have to wait and see

Ill wait and see what the setlists are like and consider going to an Irish show but I think ive seen my fill of U2 (I&E and JT shows) and then we have the high ticket prices

I cracked and listened to American Soul. That's 4/4 for me now that I really like.

Has anyone else heard anything about the vinyl being delayed by a week due to pressing issues?

Not sold on American Soul, then again, only listened once.

Little Things and The Blackout for me are still top of the pile.

Think a lot of criticisms thrown at the band, by old fans, is because of the singles released because, no one can tell me that The Little Things, Blackout, Sleep Like A Baby Tonight, The Troubles, Raised By Wolves are all "U2 by numbers" or "Them trying to be Coldplay" or whatever

I don't like it ,its almost as bad as Get on Your Boots.
Seems to rehash a number of other songs too which is never a good sign.

The boys need to pick better songs as the singles ,from what what I've read the best songs on the album havent been released yet.

My least favourite so far. I had seen a few here say it was their favourite of the lot though. No where near as good as Blackout for me.

Would be impossible considering they're doing G the US during that time and they're in Washington that weekend

Couldn't resist the temptation and gave in and listened to the album leak today.The strongest songs on it imo are the ones that haven't being released to radio yet.

I gave in as well. Someone live streamed a vinyl recording on FB & someone taped it with their phone so we're not talking FLAC quality.

What I heard was an album of monster tracks, the ones that have been released are all in the lower tier.
Whoever said it was their finest work this centrury wasn't over egging it.

It's taken them 25 years since Achtung Baby but I believe they've nailed it again.

I got The Blackout 12" yesterday. I'm not usually that pushed about remixes but do actually like the Jacknife Lee remix of The Blackout
