'Coming home...'

Bono has confirmed that the band will be bringing the 'iNNOCENCE & eXPERIENCE' Tour to Ireland at the end of November.

'We are coming home,' he told the Irish Times, after Saturday's show in Turin. 'It was really hard to figure out a way of doing it, but we just had to make it happen.'

The challenge has been reconfiguring the scale of the current show for an Irish venue. 'We found a way to reformat the show, to literally rebuild it for the Irish shows.'

No news on cities, dates or ticketing but we're expecting it soon.

'I am so happy we are bringing this home,' added Bono. 'These Irish shows will be like an Irish wedding. It is always tricky planning a wedding – who sits besides who could ruin it!'

Full Story in The Irish Times.

Just wondering, do we who are fan members get a chance at tickets before they go on sale to the general public. John Halloran.

It will be a dream for me to come in Dublin and offer your show to my husband for our 20th wedding anniversary. But I think it will be very difficult to have tickets.

A Sort Of Homecoming
I am so happy you guys have figured out Dublin. So important to the U2 family on both sides of the stage. Will be "peri-kating" you guys from the U S Of A as you travel across Europe. "Only to be with you..." May God be with the U2 family in Europe and bring them home like "St. Francis covered in light". "Mooner from the OC"

Any news on the pre-sale codes not used for the US or Europe dates as users were saving them for the Dublin dates to come?
