I've seen chatter about the possibility that U2 will do a couple of dates in Dublin late July or early August of 2009. As it stands now, we're planning to fly back to the U.S. from Paris on July 29th, but if these rumours are substantiated, I might change my itinerary and put Dublin on the end of my trip rather than the start.
I saw U2 for the first time in 1985 in Germany, and 3x after that in the states. The first show was by far the best. Seeing them in Dublin would be the ultimate I'm sure.
Anyway, I know sometimes the local buzz precedes the official information release. I'm curious to know if any of the locals here have heard anything or can provide any more information.
