It's definitely maybe for U2 shows in Dublin before the end of the year. Although just before taking to the stage in Turin on Friday night the band and their management were unable to confirm exact dates or a venue.
U2 were kicking off the European leg of their tour to a packed house in Turin's Pala Alpitour venue. They play 34 shows in total on this leg of the tour, finishing up in Paris on November 15th. Press reports have it that the band have block-booked rooms in Dublin's Gibson Hotel, which is adjacent to the 3Arena, from November 25th to November 29th. The 3Arena is free on these nights, as it is over the Christmas-New Year period.
