Appearance Of Lucifer's Hands and No Mirror Ball Man

If you missed Friday nights performance you missed the appearance of Mirror Ball Man however Saturday nights show had a few surprises that even the hard core U2 prediction crew would have never guessed. "Lucifer's Hands" from the second disc of the deluxe edition of "Songs Of Innocence". 

Bono threw it out to the audience that the band was going to play something that they have never played live before. "Because its good to do thing you haven't done before. If goes wrong blame it on The Edge"  Bono also said this was the loudest crowd to date on tour, possibly because of the surprises and The Edge allowing for a guest guitarist to setup either way the boys earned a few days off and we are still basking in the glow of MIRROR BALL MAN.

LA Soon Rearview As Denver Lights Spotted Ahead

Tonight will be the final night in LA. The band rested up and ready to leave LA on top of its game.

U2 will next hit Denver’s Pepsi Center for two shows this weekend. Cycling accidents, falling off the stage, and the passing of the bands tour manager will not stop this band. The crew, band and family move on with heavy hearts and with a strong faith.  This band wears faith and heart on its sleeve and carries on. 

So we have heard some noise in the system about the health of the band. Lets not start those rumors. The tour dates have designed built in breaks. Yes this is a massive schedule however if you dig into the dates  you see some breaks in the schedule.

The North American tour will continue through the end of July and the band really looks and sounds the best ever. This is the must see show of the summer and ticket prices have reflected such.  The secondary market has been strong knocking out fans with an avg ticket price of $257.86 and that even with ticket control measures in place. 

Fans we will continue our concertphotos drop where fans can send in their images/videos for posting. We have all our social properties reporting the news and providing you a complete update of the show day events.  We will not be reporting on what the band eats, or some lame crap about what shoes Dallas has on today. We are about the music and the show.  Stop by one of our properties and be a part of the experience


Dennis Sheehan Passes Away

TMZ reported that Dennis Sheehan has passed away in his hotel room in LA. Some reports have been floating around by other U2 blog sites that the bands past manager Paul McGuinness was the one that was found die. No Paul has not travel LA and as far as we know he is enjoying retirement just fine.

Dennis Sheehan was found unconscious in his room at the Sunset Marquis Hotel. We're told paramedics were called to Sheehan's hotel room around 5:30 AM for a reported cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Just six hours earlier, U2 had finished their sell-out concert at the Forum venue in Los Angeles.

Sheehan, who says on his Twitter profile he “loves travel, food, music, company and chatting,” began working with U2 in 1982 when they were about to release their War album. 33 years later and he, Bono, and the rest of the band have become close friends, as well as colleagues.

U2 has updated their official statement

- "We've lost a family member, we're still taking it in. He wasn't just a legend in the music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable." Bono

- "With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2's longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight. Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family." Arthur Fogel
