    Probably just an excuse to bail on the tour due to weak ticket sales.

    The second leg of the highest grossing tour in history? I think they're doing just fine.

    Probably a little more tied to the fact that Bono just got out of the hospital after having emergency back surgery.

    Dammit! I just finished a huge freelance peice on summer concerts. The focus was the U2 tour stop. FUCK!

    Mustang, did you already turn it in and has it run already? If it did, no one can foresee what happened.

    Now if it hasn't run yet, then ya... a different angle would be good. :)

    Blackeyed Peas were opening. I can't imagine that tour was having any trouble selling tickets.

    My cousin and I were just discussing Sunday whether we wanted to spend about $165 per ticket at the Meadowlands Stadium in July.

    Sounds like Bono is stuck in a moment he can't get out of.

    (Sorry, it was too easy - and, yes, I'm a U2 fan.)

    Not at all. U2 is known for usually having really good opening acts. I saw Public Enemy and the Sugarcubes open for them once. I've also seen Kings of Leon, Garbage, Smashmouth and PJ Harvey open for them.

    I saw the Blackeyed Peas open for U2 in Glendale. Not my thing, but the crowd loved 'em. It was clearly a big draw.

    On a road trip about a month or two ago, we were listening to one of the popular music channels on Sirius and we would count to see how many songs would be played in between Black-Eyed Peas songs and I don't think we ever got to more than 8 or 9.
