Bono Says That U2 Are “Going Away Now” & Fans Have Lost It

U2 has caused an absolute uproar for their fans today, as Bono ended their latest concert with a cryptic and scary message: “We’re going away now.”

The band played their last show of the ‘Experience + Innocence’ tour in Berlin last night and, as NME reports, Twitter account @U2gigs – which frequently provide coverage of the band’s concerts – said that Bono stated that the band are ‘going away now.’

“We’ve been on the road for quite some time, just going on 40 years, and this last 4 years have been really something very special for us,” Bono reportedly said. “We’re going away now…”

However, the same Twitter account also gave reassurance that they doubt the band are breaking up for good, or at all.

“Every tour I’ve covered, right back to Vertigo, every final gig is the same: mass panic that this is the last gig,” they wrote. “Ten bucks says I’ll be covering another gig with you folks sometime down the track.”

“I will concede that this is the first time the mass panic has at least seemed plausible…U2 won’t sit still and they won’t break up, and they’ve got enough years ahead of them yet to fit in more gigs!”

If this is somehow the band’s last tour, that means that their last Australian shows were all the way back in 2010. However, late last year, Bono said that the band would definitely be touring Australia soon, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
