U2 Postpone The Rest Of World Tour

Thu Mar 09, 2006 11:50 pm

Vertigo '06: Final Dates Postponed.

It is with great regret that tour promoter The Next Adventure announces the postponement of the final ten dates of U2's Vertigo '06 tour. This action is unavoidable due to the illness of an immediate family member of one of the band. The effected dates are listed below.

'Any fan of U2 will realise that this decision has not been taken lightly', said TNA President Arthur Fogel. 'We will announce further details as soon as we have them.'

The effected shows, which are all sold out, are: March 17th & 18th, Ericcson Stadium AUCKLAND; 21st, Queensland Sports & Athletics Centre BRISBANE; 24TH & 25TH, Telstra Dome, MELBOURNE; 28th, AAMI Stadium ADELAIDE; 31st & 1st April, Telstra Stadium, SYDNEY; 4th, Nissan Stadium YOKOHAMA; 8th Aloha Stadium, HONOLULU.

We'll bring you more news on U2.Com as we get it.

Don't know for sure, but I do remember Edge's daughter having cancer I believe! Maybe has come back again.

I don't want to get flamed here but hopefully they cancel the tour.
U2 = most overrated band of all time.
Bono = numero uno, world class tampon.

Well you will. Why would you wish that people who WANT to see them in concert will NOT be able to?
You obviously won't be going to any of these concerts anyway, so it won't affect you in any way whether they play 'em or not. But to wish that those who had tickets, and were looking forward to seeing them, would now not be able to to so, that's pretty sick.

May whoever it is who got affected by this illness recover soon.

Well said!

I had the oppertunity to see them twice on this tour and they are great in concert!

How can you say that when they have been so sucessful for so long? I don't see any other bands selling out 5 shows in cities around the world consistantly.

I hate his politics, I love his cause.

Hopefully the person who is ill will be able to recover quickly.

Clarification:
I got dragged to a U2 concert not too long ago and hated it.
I hope everyone gets a full refund if it gets cancelled.
Of course I wish whoever is sick well.

Perhaps. I thought she had died last year though. I could be terribly wrong there. Mark Twain comes to mind..."The rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated."

Next time someone wants to drag you to a U2 concert let me know, I'll be happy to go!  Wink

Came across a couple of things saying that she is in Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and in bad shape.

Yowza...just for you. You'll like it.

I agree his cause is great, but the way he goes about it is not, it's pretty disingenuous in my eyes.

If this happens I'd be glad to hand you my ticket, after all you're not far from here. Big grin

I'd actually seen that before and loved it. To the U2 faithful out there, read it.

I've seen that before, even though I love U2, I found that quite amusing, although I don't know who couldn't find Maddox amusing! That guy is great!

Thanks! I ended up calling my ticket guy for tickets to the shows, I think I way overpaid, but, there's some things in life that I'm willing to overpay for, and seeing U2 is one of them, but now that I know I have your ticket...
