U2 AUS TOUR DECEMBER
U2 will tour Australia in December - in four cities - including two shows in Sydney with a one-event extension to Auckland, New Zealand.
Dates for Asia and Australia haven’t been officially released, but it’s understood that the tour routing has been finalized.
News of a U2 tour Australia and Asia in 2019 began after the Experience and Innocence tour when the tour crew were told to keep their schedules open for November/December.
Asia and Australia had a confirmed U2 Tour pulled in 2006, and fans had to wait for the band to reschedule a tour, which eventually happened with a linked-in final show in Hawaii.
What is certain is that Sydney won’t be the first stop for U2 in Australia, nor will the harbour gateway city be the last.
U2 (and other major bands) venue dates can change up until the day before the final, definitive tour announcement.
Latest info circulating is that U2 how was being “squeezed” into NZ for November 8.
Tour business crunchers were reportedly looking to include additional Australia cities at the end of the soon-to-be-confirmed plans that could include a final Asian show with the band stopping-over at either Singapore, Bangkok or Hongkong.
Rumours are also circulating that Singapore “connectors” were negotiating a gala show for on U2 the island republic.
If Singapore wins the contract it is likely to be U-2’s only Asian stop regardless of whether it’s before or after Australia and New Zealand.
Some components of the stage/screen for The Joshua Tree 2017 are reportedly in the region and may be used for this tour, but the tour will not be branded the same, and modifications to the stage are being designed.
Meanwhile U2 are looking to rent four $10,000-a-night mansions for their upcoming Sydney, Australia shows.
The quartet – Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton – are reportedly each seeking their own palatial pad for their stay in the city as part of their ‘Experience + Innocence’ tour but the quest is proving difficult.
Locating and securing huge properties for the stars and their families is a hard task.
They are talking $10,000 a night houses, but there isn’t that many of them available.
Elton John is also struggling to find a mansion of his own to rent in the upmarket suburbs of Point Piper or Vaucluse for his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour. The 71-year-old star is looking for a luxurious home to house him, his husband David Furnish, 56, their sons, Zachary, eight, and Elijah, six and a huge entourage including bodyguards, nannies, chefs, hairdressers and stylists.
Sir Elton was reported in London to stating that he wanted to quit touring to spend more time with his children.
He said he’s been travelling since he was 17 in a group and then as Elton.
