U2 says it has not scheduled a London Residency. Reports had put the band in the footsteps of Prince who did a long stint at a London arena to much fanfare and claimed to lads were set to do several nights at the O2 Arena in June. The 14 shows were even listed on a U.K. concert ticket website.
But, U2 says it isn't true. A statement from the group reads, "Just a note to correct reports that tickets are becoming available for planned U2 shows next year. There are no plans for live dates next year - so please don't buy tickets for any U2 shows you see advertised."
One thing U2 can confirm is the availability of U2 Go Home, a live album from their 2001 gig at Slane Castle in Ireland. The previously unreleased album is available only via U2.com and is a two hour, twenty song set featuring classics ranging from "Out Of Control" to "Walk On."
