What's going on with the single dates?
« on: November 01, 2017, 01:28:52 PM »
It's just one night per city? That's not usual. I don't have a doubt additional dates will be added. But will they do the cringed  "due to popular demand" 3-4 times for 3 additional shows in cities like LA?

They added a lot of buffer in between dates to do just that it appears.

They want to see what the demand is after a recent tour before they determine it's going to be 2, 3, 4 or 6 nights.

Interesting question: what is the longest row of nights at one place for U2?

I was thinking 6 MSG nights on the SOI tour.

6 nights has been on several places if I remember well. Have they done 7 or 8?

I really think Atlanta is going to get two dates. All those days between Montreal? and it's only a 8,000 venue

I'm sure they'll add more, especially as the shows begin to sell out. I wouldn't panic just yet.

With the relatively recent I+e tour and jt2017 maybe they are expecting less casual fans to turn out for this tour?

I'd prefer that. Maybe we could finally get a setlist aimed at the hardcore fans who want to hear more than the same few hits night after night.

Agreed but not sure it's gonna happen. edge said recently that jt songs could get a rest and didn't completely rule out resting streets. Can't remember where I read that though.
