U2 fans itching to get their hands on the Irish band's anticipated book will have to wait even longer to read it - because its release date has been delayed by a year.

U2 BY U2 is now listed to have a worldwide publication date of September 2006 on the HARPER COLLINS microsite.

According to the PUBLISHER'S LUNCH newsletter, "The bookseller says, 'The band cited the punishing schedule of their current world tour as the reason for the delay.'"

U2's VERTIGO tour kicked off in San Diego, California, last month (MAR05).
