How long must we sing this song?

Don't know if the news reached the Northern Hemisphere, but U2 has postponed their final tour dates, including Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii. The reason given at this point is an illness to a close family member of the band. No new dates have been set yet, but I saw November as a possibility on the internet. I have a ticket to the show in Sydney, which was supposed to be on March 31. It has been eight years since U2 was in Australia, and the people here are very excited about the show. They had two shows planned for Sydney, both at Telstra Stadium, which will hold about 70,000 for a concert, and they each sold out in under an hour. For now they are telling everyone to hold on to their tickets. Stay posted for further announcements.
