Normally, I wouldn’t make note of U2, or any other band, postponing a tour. But, there are special circumstances….I have tickets to this tour!
(LOS ANGELES, CA) May 25, 2010 – As announced earlier today, Live Nation has confirmed that the U2 360Â° North American Tour will be postponed until 2011.
U2’s Bono has now been discharged from Ludwig Maximilians-University (LMU) Hospital in Munich where he underwent emergency surgery on Friday, following a back injury. In order to fully recover, he is under doctor’s orders to start a rehabilitation program and to recuperate for at least eight weeks.
This will necessitate the postponement of 16 shows on the U2 360Â° Tour from Salt Lake City on June 3rd, through to New Jersey’s Meadowlands Stadium on July 19th.
U2 was scheduled to perform in Seattle on June 20th. I cleared my schedule and bought tickets and was getting pumped to go, seeing as it was less than a month away. And now I have to wait until 2011?? What if I’m no longer in Seattle in 2011 ((I’m not saying that I’m moving, but you never know))? Ugh.
