Next up for U2360° Chile, Argentina and Brazil as the band return to South America for the first time in five years.

Edge and Bono have been speaking to Chilean TV ahead of the opening night in the country next week. A show 'is not like going to the office for us, it's either going to be a wedding or a funeral...'



And to Argentinian TV: 'A U2 show is a carnival, it's a revival, it's a political rally, it's a rave, it's a rock'n'roll show...'



It was the Vertigo Tour in 2006 when the band were last in South America and in Buenos Aires that the groundbreaking live set U23D was shot.

Last time the band were in Chile, then President-elect, Michelle Bachelet, the country's first woman leader, was backstage at the Estadio Nacional to present Amnesty International's 'Ambassadors of Conscience' award to the band and Paul McGuinness.

In Brazil Edge, Larry and Bono showed up for Carnival in Salvador and City of Blinding Lights was in the set list.

It's always special to visit South America. Are you coming to the shows? Tell us what you're looking forward to.

A dream become true!
Hi guys! I am a ecuatorian fan of the band and I will travel to Chile to see it in live. I've been waiting for this chance many years ago... at last my dream will become true. Beyond the show, I think that the the new socialist political current of the mayority of countries of our region and thier regional integration efforts (peaceful and equitable) should be an example for the rest of the world. After all, countries like Ecuador, were some of the few in present an ecological concrete proposal to tackle world climate change (Yasuní-ITT Project). Thank you for comeback tu South America!

Kite in BA for the loss of a friend
Hey guys, been following you around this crazy planet since 1984. A long time friend of mine lost her father to cancer this week. This was a quality man that gave everyday to those who did not have much. Anyway, we are coming down to BA from the US for the Sat and Sun shows, perhaps you could play Kite for her dad Bob..... I know his daughter would love it.

Five billion pixels in Argentina, plese!
Just 15 days to the first show in Argentina... it's too much time, haha!! Please, a "five billion pixels..." in the shows of Argentina (specially the first?) may be a wonderfull gift for us. My children (that will go with me to the March 30th show- first time for them-) are really exciting because of the arrive of U2 (me too, but I have to show myself as an adult...)
