Talk about having vision over visibility! Steve Stockman weighs in on opening night … from Belfast.
As fans say goodbye to the original Windmill Lane Studios, which is being demolished this week to make way for new developments, U2’s first producer Steve Lillywhite, who recorded U2’s first three albums there, shared his farewell too, as told to @U2 a few days ago: Windmill Lane was an average rock studio at best, […]
If you saw a post on Facebook, or perhaps in a forum, about what U2’s stage will look like and what sort of experience to expect in the arena for this year’s Innocence + Experience tour, don’t believe it. As far as we know here at @U2, no one is sharing reliable facts just yet about what’s […]
In our forum last night, member “Hwy 190″ shared the photo above that shows what clearly looks like a clean saw cut to the fallen Joshua tree — i.e., the actual tree from the inner cover of U2’s album. The forum member lives in the California desert and says s/he’s been visiting the site of […]
Here’s a great way to learn about U2 and many of the other great rock acts of all time in Jason Hanley’s new book, Music Lab: We Rock! This “Fun Family Guide for Exploring Rock Music History” has 52 labs — one for each week of the year — and concludes, most appropriately, with U2. Each lab, […]
You really haven’t lived until you’ve seen Junior, a French Bulldog, singing along in the car to “With Or Without You.” Just like we all do. Thanks to @2PugsinaPod for pointing us toward the video (from the dog with its own Twitter account). The internet is the best.
If you’re interested in some last minute gift ideas for that special musician and/or U2 fan in your life, you might want to consider this. Christie’s is including one of Bono’s custom Gretsch Irish Falcons in a London auction on December 16. This is the iconic green hollow body guitar that Bono has used on […]
That’s a traditional Irish carol Bono is whispering on Michael W. Smith’s new Christmas album. “The Darkest Midnight” is from a collection called the Kilmore Carols, from the village of Kilmore in County Wexford. The song’s official title is “On Christ’s Nativity,” and while versions of the poem differ, it typically runs many verses long. Bono speaks […]
This is really cool. U2 fans from around the world have shared brief video messages to let Bono know that they’re (we’re) thinking about him, praying for him, and hoping he recovers fully and quickly from that awful bike accident last month. @U2 was one of many fan sites around the world to help spread […]
The first thank you in the notes for Songs of Innocence is “to Jack Heaslip, our North Star.” We don’t hear much from Heaslip, but he’s been a constant presence in U2’s life since meeting the boys when they were high schoolers at Mount Temple Comprehensive School and he was working there as a guidance counselor and […]
