The biggest and the best but we miss out
Irish rock band U2 is touring Australia in February, taking thegigantic PopMart stage show to every major city bar Adelaide. Theirsell-out tour of the US was met with rave reviews, with one papercalling it "the most intelligent, imaginative rock show ever to hit astadium". On tour with U2 is the world’s biggest TV astate-of-the-art 46m by 15m screen. The spectacular searchlighteffects caused Las Vegas locals to report UFO sightings. The showopens in Perth on February 17, then Melbourne on February 21, Brisbaneon the 25th and Sydney on the 27th. So why does Adelaide dip out ?"The time factor" was the curious explanation from a spokesman forpromoter Paul Dainty (i.e., the band is only in Oz long enough forfour gigs). "There’s an outside chance it (an Adelaide show) mayhappen but at this stage it’s not likely,’ the spokesman said.
