U2 wraps up the latest North American leg of its Elevation world tour this weekend, with shows Friday (November 30) in Atlanta, Saturday (December 1) in Tampa, and Sunday (December 2) in Miami, just down the road from Fort Lauderdale, where the tour opened on March 24.
U2 guitarist the Edge said that the tour, supporting the Grammy-winning album All That You Can’t Leave Behind, has been exhausting at times but enjoyable throughout.
“I’m having the best time, as we all are,” he says. “It’s been such a thrill to play this album live and to kind of just see it going off in the way that it’s gone off. You know, the shows have been inspirational for us, and our audience seems to be completely into it as well, and it’s just great. It seems like there’s a kind of love affair happening which I can’t remember this kind of intensity since probably the Joshua Tree period.”
U2 has no more concert dates scheduled after Sunday’s show, although there are rumors that the band, which toured Europe this summer, might head to Japan, Australia, and South America in 2002.
