South America Coming Up

15 Mar 201187
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.

on wars and dictatorships
Dear U2a 35 years ago one of the worst periods in the history of our country began, the seven ys dictatorship of the military junta. As you are well aware, during this time, n Argentina (and most S. American countries), people were tortured, prosecuted, killed, babies stolen and a whole lot of atrocities committed. I personally appreciated very much that you got involved in meeting with the relevant parties in Buenos Aires and commemorating with “Mothers of the dissappeared”, which was VERY special to have in 1998 and 2006. It is a beautiful tune that invariably brings tears to my eyes when I listen to it. But also, I wanted to mention, in case that you weren´t aware, that April 2nd, the date of the second show in La Plata, is the date when our troops disembarked in Pt. Stanley, marking the begging of the Falklands War. Our troops consisted mostly of teenage conscripts. It was all a stupid, ludicrous and murderous plan of a decaying “government” and its alcoholic leader. The sentiment in our country, goes well beyond the issue of sovereignty of the islands, but is about recognizing that we don´t want none of that madness to happen again! Thank you. See you soon. Juan ps, written at 3AM... pps, it would be a grand madness if you also play Ultraviolet : )
U2 - South America
It's a dream to have U2 in South America, especially Brazil (my country). I'm sure that U2 will chose the best Setlist to play here!!
Brazilian shows!!!!!!
I am waiting anxiosly for Brazilian shows. Luckly I got all 3 days tickets. Thanks God, thanks U2. Those will be my 3rd show to celebrate 24 years of being an U2's fan. Jaqu2line

No Line on Santiago
One of the best songs from the latest album must be on Santiago Gig. Also, we want Breathe, Unforgettable Fire, and Mercy.
The Unforgettable Fire
Just more nineteen days to go to a U2 concert again. They haven't played The Unforgettable Fire since August 15, 2010 in Horsens, Denmark. I'm really looking forward to listening to it in São Paulo on April 10, 2011. The Unforgettable Fire is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard and reminds me of good times. See you soon U2!
Thank you
Twelve days left until the second night in Argentina and I cannot wait any longer. I'd really love to hear Acrobat or a very special song on April 2nd. I've been listening U2 for more than five years. I couldn't go to the Vertigo Tour in 2006... Now I'm very happy; I think it's going to be incredible and unforgettable! Thank you all for all this years of the best music.
Please plaY BREATHE in Brazil april 10th!!!!
The dream of my life
Going to a U2 concert it´s the only dream of my life that I still haven´t accomplished!!!But after april 10th,the dream will become true!!
