Talk about having vision over visibility! Steve Stockman weighs in on opening night … from Belfast.
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 […]
This is just too cool. A U2 fan who goes by the name “Hitoz” and is a regular in the U2Achtung.com forums (a French fan site) has just finished what he calls the “Baby Claw.” The project began in April 2010 and was completed earlier this month. According to U2Achtung.com, Hitoz spent more than 300 […]
Davy Jones may have sung with the Monkees, but did you know he also moonlit as a singer with U2? It was June 21, 1997 when he took the stage with The Edge in Los Angeles to join in the karaoke for “Daydream Believer.” In honor of Jones’ passing today at the age of 66, […]
@U2 reader Denise L. sent us a link to this image below showing the balance sheet when U2 played Bogart’s in Cincinnati in April 1981. (It’s part of a slideshow about renovations at the club.) U2 played to 420 people that night and the show grossed $2,520. Tickets were only $6 each. Amazing to think […]
After a nearly three-year legal battle, a court order has forced the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority (NJSEA) to make public hundreds of contracts that it signed for concerts that have been held at the Meadowlands complex — the stadium and arena. You can read more about the court fight on NJ.com. Also on […]
Add this to your collection of rare, early U2 audio clips. This is U2 performing “Out Of Control” at the Dandelion Market in August 1979. The sound quality is pretty darn good for a recording that’s just surfaced now, some 32 years later. The audio comes from Pete McCluskey, who was in the Irish Independent […]
Gizmodo reported today that David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” will be hitting shelves as an illustrated children’s book thanks to Andrew Kolb. I believe this ranks right up there will a must-have for any U2 fan who enjoyed the U2360 tour!
Like many U2 fans, I’m really sentimental tonight as the U2360 Tour lifts off for its final time in Moncton. I jumped on board this spaceship while it was still in its infancy back on March 11, 2009 in Somerville, Massachusetts during U2’s “Three Nights Live” promotion for No Line On The Horizon. My daughter […]
Twenty four hours ago , I experienced something very special at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. In fact, I’d go to far to say it was truly magical. I will never forget it. I held my ticket for this U2 360 show for exactly 20 months. As I listen to the […]
