U2 Closes Out Madison Square Garden With Bruce Springsteen

New York: We have been on the road for about 2 1/2 months crossing North America to get to New York City. We have been given access to the shows to be able to capture the event. Night after night U2 fans line up in GA lines some organized and some a little bit off center. The vibe between fans has always been strong. Its dedication to the music, the concepts of U2's music. Its not uncommon to hear fans talk about their number. The number in line is one thing however the more important number is of shows attended. Yes every band has their fair share of "PUNTERS" and frankly its not worth focusing on. Just know this, the band is fully aware of you the fan. They fully understand that its always about the fan. The fan experience. From our vantage point we agree.  Before we dive into the show. We want your help. We are in the process of our next project. Your quote of the North American tour. Please take a few minutes and submit your thoughts

U2 performed the final of 8 shows in New York City. Every show has been filled with rumors of Bruce Springsteen and finally Bruce appeared to a chanting crowds, BRUCE, BRUCE, BRUCE.   Kicking off "I Still Haven't Found" Bruce joined in which swayed into "Stand By Me" with Bono.

The evening ended with "40" and some thoughts around Dennis Sheehan who pass away earlier in the tour.  The band takes a short break now before heading to Europe, Opening night will be in Turin on September 4th.  We have lots of people to thank. Watch for our special on our photography crew to give you some insight to the magic that was made on this tour.

Not Just Another Night For U2 at MSG

New York:  Number #6 was about the Heart Beat ! In fact two of them. "Two Hearts Beat As One" made an appearance. The set list mix up had some social media followers blasting out of their chairs around the world. Troubles also made an appearance. 

On the "E" stage the setlist was "Desire. Angel Of Harlem and One closed out the evening. The final song seemed to have its challenges for the fans when Bono suggested that they take the lead. A couple of false starts and the crowd finally kicked in. The set list did not have "One" printed on it rather Streets. 

The MSG shows have been completely different that the band has run a very tight show schedule. Some fans have expressed concerns over the band failing to stop and greet and sign before entry into MSG. However the pro signers have taken over the area and really prevented fans from access to the band. In the end its always about the fans. For now its going to have to be a pass until something better can be worked. out.  

We have a special announcement coming very soon.  We have our best photographer in New York this week and we some amazing images to share with you.

U2's Inspiring Uniqueness Dominates Madision Square Garden

New York:  We a band from the north side of Dublin. U2 has blazed a trail thru the  North America with career that spans musical uniqueness and places itself right smack in the middle of Rock's Hall of Frame.  Bono has spoken before about The Ramones has a some inspiration for the band and with this new album pays tribute to Joey Ramone within one of the tracks.

U2 played the second show of a total of eight sold out shows at Madison Square Garden. New York is Ramones hometown and Bono lets fans know how he feels about coming to New York.

This is not the first time has played New York and most likely not the last. U2 has been on a North American tour that comes to a close shortly. Surprises along the way have kept fans on edge. Few weeks ago we called it "U2's Dreams Come True Tour" because of the amount of surprises happening back 2 back.

Clearly the band has no intention of letting the gas of the peddle. They forge on and take on MSG as if it was the first night on the tour.  For the boys this is not about proving anything. Its about playing a very personal deeply intense set of music that they hope fans will understand and enjoy. No worries as Bono surveys the crowd he can see a younger audience singing the new songs and an older audience singing songs from yesterday. Its bridge they had hoped to cross.

Last nights show we had our photographer Mark Peterson capture the fans, the band and bring the music to life within some images. Fans continue to use our concertphotos@u2tourfans.com address and send in their photos and videos. 

North America will come to a close and U2 fans will continue to travel around the world to see their band perform and engage with fellow U2 fans. The social community of U2 fans has always been about connecting to others thru music.
