    Did we time travel back to 1987? I could understand this move if U2 were promoting Joshua Tree, but it's 2015! Less than three weeks left before opening night and this is how U2 plans on generating interest? For those who haven't heard yet, U2 shot a video for their third single, Song for Someone this past weekend in Los Angeles. The problem, Woody Harrelson is starring in it. Wait, what? Woody Harrelson? Talk about being down & out in Beverly Hills. What, Eric Roberts wasn't available? Listen, we all know U2 is teetering on the fence of irrelevance, but...

  • Steve Lillywhite Remembers Windmill Lane

    8 Apr 2015 | 1:40 pm
    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, as well as a video editing company. Most other big Irish bands, like Thin Lizzy and The Boomtown Rats, moved to London to record. I was the first producer there ever to make a decent sounding rock record with Boy. I had to record Larry in the reception area because the…

    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 store. This is NOT a design for U2’s tour stage. Earlier this week on a Facebook page, this image (without the red “X,” which I added) was posted with a link to the designer’s website. The Facebook poster claimed, This is U2’s stage setup (a PA…
  • PHOTO: It Looks Like Someone Cut the Joshua Tree

    11 Feb 2015 | 9:29 am
    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 the tree (which fell in 2000) regularly, including a visit a few days ago. This past Sunday, I made my proverbial yearly hike out to the Tree with my dog to reminisce only to find that some hack and I do mean hack, decided it was a bright idea to take a hacksaw to one of the…

Each lab, or lesson, includes a brief story about the artist with special mention of their historical context or social connections, an essential playlist, a “song fact” about a greatest hit (“Where The Streets Have No Name” for U2), and then a “Try…

    Much has already been said about “The Troubles”, Songs of Innocence‘s closing track, (including this great article from our own Joe Pittella). So much so that I wanted to take my time writing my own take on the subject. That's why it's appearing near the end of my U2101 articles dedicated to the songs of Songs of Innocence. Certainly, I wanted to separate my article from those by Joe and others by the passage of time, but I also wanted to be certain that what I had to say about the song was worth an article of its own, and...

Let's get the obvious pun out of the way: No, they're not even better than the real thing (and after meeting frontman Joe Hier – yes, stage name “Hollywood Bono” – I am certain they would not want anyone to call them better than U2. Joe is a legit U2er like the rest of us, and he emanates serious passion for the band when he talks about them). PS, he's also friends with a family...

    There's simply no way to get U2's Songs of Innocence without a bit of trouble: The band drew the ire of iTunes users everywhere when listeners found the album forced upon them via the Apple program during September. Now the group has gotten around to releasing a vinyl version of the controversial release and some buyers are finding something else entirely: pressings of Tool's debut EP Opiate instead of the more streamlined Songs of Innocence. Did the alt-metal band pull off the greatest promotional stunt ever, trumping even U2 itself? No, unfortunately. It was some sort of accident, albeit…

  • U2 To Play Ten Shows In Dublin?

    It’s rumor time. Dublin shows have yet to be announced for U2’s Innocence and Experience Tour. #U2ieTOUR What could be the hold up?  Well if they are trying to book TEN shows that could take a lot of organizing. I’m guessing since it’s Dublin they may be even doing some smaller type venues too. Only time will tell. The last (and only)time I saw U2 in Ireland was in August of 2001 at Slane Castle. So, thats the rumor.  Ten shows in Dublin.  Dates and venues unknown at this time. Oh, the other rumor is that Kodaline will be the opening act.
