"We genuinely believed it was a record about being fans of rock-and-roll. Maybe we didn't understand how successful we were and that it looked like we were hanging out with these guys so, by association, that we were one of the greats."

-- Bono, on Rattle and Hum

U2 Scrap Tour to Get Album Out

The Mirror, April 02, 2004
By: Paul Martin

 

U2 fans will have to wait more than a year to see their heroes back on stage in Ireland.

The supergroup were due to release their new album this summer but are so far behind schedule they have had to scrap their plans to tour.

They are now being lined up to headline next year's Phoenix Park summer spectacular, which will attract up to 100,000 fans.

A source close to the band revealed: "All plans for any live shows this year have been put on the backburner.

"The simple fact is they haven't recorded enough songs for the new album. Bono's been away a lot and that's caused a few delays."

It's possible the band will also look at Croke Park to stage a show.

The source added: "They want to stage a world tour and play bigger venues than ever after making their last one more intimate."
