    U2 plan to release a new album in just 18 months. Titled 'Songs of Experience', lined up for next release. Bassist Adam Clayton told the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine: ''We're hoping 'Songs of Experience' will be less about intimacy and more about a celebration of sorts.'' Clayton's band mate Bono has also revealed an album called 'Songs of Ascent' - a record he previously claimed would be the follow-up to 2009's 'No Line on the Horizon' - could still be released as part of a trilogy of themed LPs.The singer said: '''Songs of Ascent' will come. And there are some beautiful songs.''The…

    A music news website, Consequence Of Sound, has just reported on a study involving colleges and universities. In the article “Smart people listen to Radiohead and dumb people listen to Beyoncé, according to study,” Alex Young reviews the data gleaned by the “Music That Makes You Dumb” project in which SAT scores from 1,352 institutions of higher ed were correlated to the favorite music groups/performers as reported by Facebook. While not exactly scientific, this study does provide a snapshot of collegiate listening habits. And for U2 fans, the news is good! (Note:…

    We have heard some noise around the possibility of Croke Park next summer. The promoters will be announcing the upcoming shows for 2015 within the venue. U2 has always been one act to pull in large numbers.  However, the question has come up would fans prefer a smaller venue this time around. 82,000 fans stand ready to purchase tickets in either case.  We will keep our ear to the ground and check in with our sources within the next day or so. One thing is for sure U2 will be on tour next year.

  • Bono Met Chess Champ Garry Kasparov, Supports His Bid to Run World Chess Federation

    Matt McGee
    13 Jun 2014 | 5:04 pm
    Bono recently met one of the all-time great chess masters in Dublin, Garry Kasparov, and talks about the visit in a letter that was posted today on Kasparov’s election website. Election? Yep. He’s running for President of FIDE, the World Chess Federation. And in the letter, Bono expresses his support for Kasparov to get the position, while also reminiscing about his own chess-playing dreams as a child in Dublin: I met the great man recently in Dublin, and heard he was running for President of FIDE. I can’t think of a more luminous mind to take that position. I became a child…

    Artist Fin DAC has created an enormous mural painting of Bono and The Edge inside the Gibson Hotel in Dublin. Gary P., our Dublin photographer friend, met up with the artist last Wednesday to shoot these photos as the project wrapped up. We’re told this is a permanent mural, so next time you’re in Dublin do check it out. The Gibson Hotel is right across from the O2 Arena (on the site of the old Point Depot). Here are some more photos – thanks Gary! The post PHOTOS: Giant U2 Mural at Dublin’s Gibson Hotel appeared first on @U2 Blog.
  • Bono turns up on old Orbison demo

    7 May 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl is being rereleased with bonus material in celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary. Orbison died of a heart attack just days after finishing studio work on this highly-praised record, so the celebration is even more meaningful. One of the anniversary package’s bonus features includes a previously unreleased demo of Orbison working on the critically-acclaimed “She’s A Mystery To Me,” a song written for him by Bono and The Edge while on the Joshua Tree tour. Bono can clearly be heard giving instructions to Orbison and percussionist Jim Keltner on this…

    To the brood: My apologies for the delay in submitting the second part of this four-part series. I had initially intended to publish these entries on a weekly basis, but alas proverbial roadblocks associated with my day job as a journalist have proven significant. Consider that arguing U2’s relevance in a largely irrelevant music industry, where cookie-cutter hits continue their two-decade assault on mainstream pop, requires more than a quick offering halfheartedly written because high school football and public corruption (I cover the South Texas area…enough said) were still on the mind.

Such as Peru, Chile and Argentin. Bono visited Peru about a year or so ago and informed the fans that he loved the country and is looking forward to coming back. Now a posting from UM (South America) suggested that South America is big on the tour list.  Now no details have been confirmed and the boys are out marketing their new release so we do not…

    One could easily be forgiven for assuming that this was an off-cut from Noel Gallagher’s debut solo outing from the opening strums of the acoustic guitar, an unintentional pretense carried on through lyrical patterns and harmonies that may have you questioning whether there was some form of Oasis-based intervention during the creation of the song. Nevertheless, you’re unlikely so hear an acoustic fronted band that will stir your emotions this much any time soon. Having unexpectedly meandered into the path of Bear Paw through their appearance at the inaugural Indigo Sessions back…
