Toronto appears to have become a rehearsal haven for legends of the rock world, as speculation mounts that U2 will warm-up for their Vertigo tour in the city.

To be fair, this doesn't really match Rolling Stones rehearsing in the area in preparation for their tour, but the Toronto Sun reports U2 are now set to use a downtown location to tune up their guitars and perfect the second North American leg of their worldwide tour, which, uncoincidentally, kicks off in the T-dot.

The Irish juggernaut rolls into town to play the Air Canada Centre September 12, 14, 16 and 17, but will use the Air Canada Centre on September 9, 10 and11, to make all the last minute preparations.

As previously reported, U2 have joined the ever-growing celebrity fanclub of The Arcade Fire, and have secured the Montreal act to support them on their three non-Toronto Canadian tour dates.

Here is the full list of U2's Canadian tour dates:

  • September 12 Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre
  • September 14 Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre
  • September 16 Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre
  • September 17 Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre
  • November 25 Ottawa, ON @ Corel Centre
  • November 26 Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre
  • November 28 Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre
