U2 fans across South America have been eagerly waiting to find out if and when the Irish rock band would return to the continent for its 360° tour.
While there has been no official confirmation from the band about any South American tour plans, the Brazilian newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo reported last week that U2 will play Brazil in November, 2010.
According to the report, U2 will do three shows three show in Sao Paolo and one in Rio. If that’s true, it means U2 would almost certainly play Buenos Aires very close to that date.
In other U2 news, in case you haven’t caught U2 ’s spectacular 3D concert movie, you can see it in Buenos Aires at any of the Showcase movie complexes in Belgrano, Marínez, Haedo, as well as in the interior cities of Córdoba and Rosario. For show times and more info, click here.
Keep in mind that U23D will be showing at these theaters for just two weeks from Nov. 12-25.
Most of the scenes in the 84-minute movie, which was the first of its kind to be shot entirely in 3D, were filmed during two concerts here in Buenos Aires. In an interview with IndieLondon last year, Bono talked about why U2 shot the film in South America in general and in Buenos Aires in particular.
“I felt that if we were going to do this right we had to do it in South America, since the band’s presence after an eight-year hiatus from the continent was certain to draw vibrant and enthusiastic crowds.”
“Ireland and Argentina have so much in common, not just in terms of personalities but our passion and our shared history,” he explained. “They have had their difficult political past. But our differences based on our past should not prevent us from living a better future. We share much in common. The only difference is they can dance!”
