New York:  The band has sold more than 145 million albums worldwide and has won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other rock band. U2 formed in 1976 when the members were teenagers with limited musical proficiency. The question that has been kicking around the office for a few weeks has been will U2 release a commercially available album prior to September 30th, In order for U2 to qualify for the next year awards, they would have to release an album prior to 9.30.16.

Those are the rules and fans remember when U2 had quietly slid a few vinyl copies of the LP to a few independent retailers, just in time to qualify for next year’s Grammys. Songs of Innocence was released to a very small number of retailer and U2 made the cutoff. 

The 14th album has been in the works for some time and Edge made some comments to BB that suggest that we might see something by the end of the year with a shiny new tour to be kicked off the end of 2017.

Fans the rumors have been running wild and sure we would like to say that the boys have been working hard in their studio recording that new fresh sound we have been talking about for some time or that reports have surfaced that the band, in fact, has some tunes down on tape, very early stages and not a tune have been heard outside the studio.

We can't confirm it or deny it. We do know this. If U2 was to want to make not only a performance appearance at the Grammy Awards show in February they will have to release soon. 

Well, Boys here's to seeing you in September !

Edge Talks Security, New Album, New Tour

New York:  The Edge in conversation with Billboard talked about show security, the new album and yes, of course, a new tour. In light of all the issues around the world, U2 has a connection with their audience ( fans) that allows them to get up close and personal. The future may have some changes, however, it's not one that the band would really want to take into consideration.

However U2 has a strong security team in place today and while we have fans may not like what the future holds security has to be top of mind for not only the artists it has to be center view for fans as well.  Further conversation with Billboard The Edge stated that the band has been putting the finishing touches on the new album which should be available by the end of the year. Yes a new tour is in the works and of course, it's too early to suggest dates or cities, just know it's on target and it will be shared soon.

 

U2's The Edge rocks an acoustic set at Sistine Chapel

New York: The Edge turned into the principal rock performer to perform at the Sistine Chapel this weekend when he played an acoustic set with a youthful Irish choir.

As indicated by NBC News, The Edge (otherwise known as Dave Evans) was welcome to make that big appearance in conjunction with the gathering was invited to take the stage in conjunction with the conference on regenerative medicine, which was held at the Vatican. The meeting has an individual significance for The Edge, whose little girl had overcome leukemia.

"When I was requested that perform in the Sistine Chapel I didn't recognize what to say, on the grounds that more often than not there's 'this other person' who sings," he told the group of onlookers, making a joke about U2's Bono. "So it took me at any rate, well, 30 seconds to consent to it."

Evans performed U2's melodies "Yahweh," "Conventional World," and "Stroll On," and Leonard Cohen's "Whether It Be Your Will."
