U2's Weekly Wrapup

U2TOURFANS Looking for Followers !


U2TOURFANS As we get ready to launch our tour season we back here in our cold offices have been thinking about contests that we can hold for our followers, we would never dare call you fans, unless it was in reference to the band of course. Thinking about concests we have come up with a couple of ideas. Of course there not fully baked nor would the boss let us throw them out to you like this, however we can say its going to be tied to Facebook, Youtube and Twitter and our iPhone Application. Refer your friends to sign up to any or all of the three media choices and you could be a winner of a super cool item(s).

U2 weekly wrap up starts now this has been an interesting week. Take a look at the stories you followed. We have our guest writter program kicking off again, as well as a feature writer, if you would like to be a guest writer let us know. Oh before we forget. Remember we asked for your best U2TOURFANS photo. Its not too late to get in on this. Send it to us via Facebook.

U2’s Bono makes diva demands

U2’s BonoDiva alert: U2 front man Bono dined with bandmate Edge at Butter on Tuesday night, and another person dining there says he had more than a few demands.

“He wanted Perrier, which they didn’t have, so a waiter actually ran across the street to a store and bought him a bottle,” says a patron at the next table.

That wasn’t all. Bono needed his food prepared specially. “He demanded that his salad be chopped,” says the spy. “And he made sure it was when it arrived.”

U2 Guitarist’s Plans Don’t Find Green

U2’s The Edge

MALIBU, Calif. — The house that the U2 guitarist longs to build here would have a copper roof, fashioned to resemble fluttering leaves. Boulders that dot the property would be left in place and assigned charming names like Dinosaur Vertebrae and Cistern. The dirt dug up to build would be reused, when possible.

U2 Producer Steve Lillywhite

Steve LillywhiteWe’ve seen a few big names bandied about for the role of next Simon Cowell, including Tommy Mottola, Guy Oseary, Jimmy Iovine, and, most notably, Howard Stern. But seeing as American Idol appears no closer to actually naming a successor, a new contender has thrown his hat in the ring: Steve Lillywhite, the 55-year-old British producer most closely associated with U2, released a YouTube video last week stating his case, and has followed it up today with an interview with Idol Tracker. For the record, Lillywhite — who has also produced the Pogues, She & Him, 30 Seconds to Mars, Guster, Jason Mraz, the one Chris Cornell solo album not everyone hated, most of the big Dave Matthews Band albums plus one that was never released, and a Rolling Stones album from 1986 — is dead serious.

OneRepublicThe Universal Music Group newsletter featured OneRepublic outlining the tour schedule for the group and what did we find deep within that newsletter ? Yes, OneRepublic will be the support act opening for U2 on September 15, 2010 in Munich. The details not fully outlined within the newsletter, stand by as we collect more info. Its seems that the boys plan to mix up the tour just a bit with couple of different supporting acts. For those of you keeping track at home here is what we have for opening acts so far.
