U2 Rocks The Roxy

HOLLYWOOD, CA -  Right smack in the middle of the 5 night run at the Forum, KROQ working with The Roxy Theatre held a surprise gig for about 500 lucky fans who managed to score free tickets for the event.

This was the smallest venue the band has played in many years. The band did come out and spend some time with the fans, signing and posing for photos. Inside the Bono even did a bit of crowd-surfing and amazed fans with a very up close and personal evening.

Wednesday night we had a photo of the set list that was to be performed at the Roxy. The photo turned out to be right on the money. The band had a very long sound check that included “11 O’clock Tick Tock”, “The Ocean” “Elevation”, “Stuck In A Moment”, “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, and “California”.

The band will head back to the forum to finish out their LA gigs and head on to Denver.

U2 Mystery Studio Clips (Listen)

The chatter starts when nothing is reported. Frankly this is one of those items that has gone without notice. Could someone have linked some new U2 songs without anyone even noticing ?  The fan site U2 Valencia has reported that the songs have been recorded around Feb 2012 - No way to really prove or disprove the suggestion at this time. However we have pulled the clips down and will be running them over pro tools which is the standard tools used in studio recordings to see if we can catch a date. Watch for more news about the mystery U2 clips -

Again its a bit early to be sure that this is part of anything new - So lets call it a rumor for now -
