U2 Postpones Tour Dates

Published: 2006-03-10
U2 fans in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and Honolulu will have to wait longer than they'd anticipated to see the band live, after ten dates on U2's Vertigo tour were postponed.

According to a statement on their official website, the shows are being put on hiatus due to an illness in one of the band member's family. There is no indication of what the illness may be or whose family member is affected.

"Any fan of U2 will realize that this decision has not been taken lightly", said Arthur Fogel, President of the company that is promoting the Vetigo tour. "We will announce further details as soon as we have them."

The band has been touring behind their 2004 album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb since last year. In 2005 they had the highest grossing tour of the year.

The postponed dates are as follows:

March 17 & 18, Auckland, New Zealand - Ericcson Stadium
March 21, Brisbane, Australia - Queensland Sports & Athletics Centre
March 24 & 25, Melbourne, Australia - Telstra Dome
March 28 Adelaide, Australia - AAMI Stadium ADELAIDE
March 31 & April 1, Sidney, Australia - Telstra Stadium
April 4, Yokohama, Japan - Nissan Stadium
April 8, Honolulu, HI - Aloha Stadium
