The Irish rockers are reported to be looking at another venue in addition to Loch Lomond...

U2 are reported to be lining up not one but two shows in SCOTLAND.

Scots fans had been disgruntled after the band failed to announce any dates north of the border on their world tour.

But according to gig promoters SFX, they are looking at another venue besides Balloch – on the banks of Loch Lomond, where Oasis headlined a gig in 1996. An application has been made to West Dunbartonshire Council to stage the 35,000-capacity event at Loch Lomond.

However, the Daily Record newspaper today (March 31) reports that promoters have been scouting other outdoor venues.

Bono earlier this week refuted accusations of ignoring their Scottish fans, saying: “Someone has put it about that we are snubbing our Scottish fans. Whoever said U2 didn’t want to play Scotland is a big eejit.”

Outdoor venues which host rock concerts in Scotland include Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle, and Glasgow Green in the city centre.
