This is completely out of left field...who the hell saw this coming, especially with Damon's solo success the past year? If it's legit, I'm going to shriek like a banshee with excitement.

Hence Tweedz recent 'Moan, moan, moan' comments because he knew they had something up their sleeves and all we do is complain? I guess we find out if it's an album at 2.

I'll be massively disappointed if it's only a gig and not an album...and a gig would make more sense as I think about it, 2015 is 25 years after release of their first single...

But I've got faith we'll finally get that final album now :)

Well, this is all very exciting!

I already think the album name and cover art are fantastic. Not really bothered about another Hyde Park gig, I'm just hoping this announcement at least includes a release date.
