According to this news update on the Italian site U2place.com, Larry's drum tech Sam O'Sullivan spilled the beans to fans in Zagreb about some of the band's plans for the next year or so. Here's the scoop:

  • After the North American tour ends, U2 will stay in Vancouver to complete work on the new album, Songs of Ascent. It'll be released in December or early in 2010.
  • U2 may tour Australia/New Zealand ("Oceania" is what U2place.com says) in March 2010, but it depends on the cost of transporting the stage.
  • There'll be another tour of Europe next summer, including a date in Rome.

For what it's worth, Sam has been pretty reliable over the years about this kind of stuff. And on a related note, there are reports that four major record labels -- including U2's label, Universal -- are joining forces to create a new digital album format. In much of the coverage, U2's new album is said to be one of the first releases, if not the first release to be available this way.
