Posted by Ace Staff on March 3rd, 2009

U2′s new album is now out in the U.S. and the band is promoting it heavy this week and next. There are lots of exciting developments for U2 fans.  U2 is of course playing the Letterman Show all this week but in addition the band has planned 3 intimate performances from March 9 thru March 11 in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston.  U2 will play a small club show in L.A. on 3/9, a radio show in Chicago on 3/10 and a small club show in Boston on 3/11.  It doesn’t appear that U2 tickets will be available for sale for any of these shows but all the details have yet to be revealed.  Tickets for the U2 Boston show have been available to radio contest winners only so far.  Five major radio stations in Boston are giving tickets away all this week.  There is still no indication of where this U2 show will happen given that most of the likey choices are already booked including the Paradise, the House of Blues and the Orpheum Theatre.  One rumor has U2 playing at the Showcase Live at Gillette Stadium. In other U2 news, the band is set to release their 2009 Tour schedule on Monday 3/9.  U2 has already revealed the tour to be a stadium tour. They will likely play two shows at New England’s Gillette Stadium later this year.

U2 To Play Stadium Tour in 2009

Posted by Ace Staff on February 24th, 2009

With a week to go before the release of U2′s latest album, ‘No Line On the Horizon’ anticipation amongst U2 fans is growing.  The album got a five star review from Rolling Stone magazine senior editor, David Fricke in this week’s Rolling Stone.  Rolling Stone also revealed that U2 will bring it’s 2009 tour outdoors. On recent tours U2 has stuck with arenas in North America.  This time around expect to see them at your nearest football stadium.  New Englanders should plan for a couple of U2 shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro while the New York, New Jersey crowd can expect some U2 shows at Giants Stadium.  Bono and the gang chose stadiums so they could play to larger crowds.  U2 is also planning a unique stage setup possibly built around a large general admission field section.  More details are expected soon. As of right now no U2 tour dates have been set and no U2 tickets are on sale yet. Stay tuned for more info.

U2 To Play Letterman For 5 Nights

Posted by Ace Staff on February 12th, 2009

To celebrate the release of their new album ‘No Line on the Horizon’, U2 will perform on the David Letterman Show for five straight nights from March 2 thru March 6.   There is no indication of what they might play but I hope they do at least one new song per night. Hearing new U2 material live is the best way to judge their songs.  It might be the only way to hear them live for the time being as U2 has not announced any plans for their 2009 tour. A U2 tour is inevitable but when it will come is anyone’s guess. Some recent rumors have U2 playing Fenway Park over the Summer while others think a Fall stop in Boston is more likely.  Wherever they wind up playing check back here for U2 news and U2 tickets.

Rumors of a the Elton John & Billy Joel tour coming to Fenway have turned into a confirmation of the duo playing at Gillette Stadium. On Saturday, July 18th, the Face 2 Face tour will come to Foxborough. This leaves the Summer’s Fenway concert as a question mark – and opens up the possibility of the long-rumored U2 show at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark. Elton John and Billy Joel tickets are available now, and you can sign up now to be notified as soon as U2 tickets are available.

Posted by Ace Staff on January 29th, 2009

U2 fans who are sick of all the rumors about when they might see the band live can take some solace in knowing that the band has at least three confirmed performances on the horizon.  U2 will perform at this year’s Grammy Awards Show on February 8th.  It is not part of any U2 tour but its a live U2 performance nonetheless.  You can also catch U2 perform at the Brit Awards on February 18th and Germany’s Echo Awards later that month.  U2 will likely be performing their new single, ‘Get On Your Boots’ at all three awards shows. No U2 tickets are available for any 2009 shows yet.  A U2 tour announcement is expected soon.  

Get New U2 Album Early

Posted by Ace Staff on January 27th, 2009

Will you get the new U2 album, ‘No Line On the Horizon’ before its early March release date? If you want to you’ll have to travel to the band’s hometown to do so.  Their upcoming album scheduled for release on March 2 in Europe and March 3 in the U.S. will be released on February 27 in Ireland only.  No details on how or why the album is getting an early release for U2′s homeland but U2 fans in Dublin won’t complain. U2′s first single off the new album, “Get on Your Boots” has been met with mixed reviews. Some lovers, some haters and some right in the middle.  Either way the sound is definitely not typical U2 and has certainly created a buzz around the rest of the album’s tracks.  Aside from occasional unfounded rumors, there has been no significant news regarding a 2009 U2 tour.  We only know that a U2 tour is certainly inevitable. Stay tuned for info on U2 tickets as news becomes available.
