Rumor: U2 in St. Louis in 2010?

Posted By on Fri, Oct 2, 2009 at 8:13 AM

5 Score Pachyderm notes on Twitter this morning that on today's "The Morning After" on 1380 AM, InsideSTL.com's Tim McKernan said that U2 was set to play the Edward Jones Dome on July 10, 2010. A post on STLtoday's forums, however, says that the show supposedly will be at Busch Stadium. (The Cards are away, so that's plausible.) 

Now, a U2 blog originating in Mexico published a list of 2010 tour dates which includes St. Louis on July 10, and a commenter claimed the list originated from Interference, the U2 fan community. (Hey, those Spanish classes I took paid off.) A little Google-poking found the atU2blog posting about an alleged show in Michigan on July 8 of the same year -- and a two-day drive is completely doable to Missouri from there. (Their method of finding the date -- StubHub.com and Eventful.com -- yields no St. Louis evidence, however.) U2 has announced some 2010 tour dates, but not a new American leg -- and this year's shows have been in large outdoor stadiums, so it's anybody's guess what's going to happen.

Stay tuned.
