Brand New 'Song For Someone' Video

Their new feature for "Song For Someone" will be online for only 24 hours. Video posted below.

At the point when U2 dropped their first music features, you needed to keep your eyes on the TV on the off chance that you needed to catch them. Unless you were particularly VCR-slanted, taking it in at whatever point MTV chose to reveal to it was your opportunity to catch Bono's legend in its transitory, 1980s greatness.

For their most recent feature, U2 is having a go at something kinda-sorta thusly, maybe a cutting edge identical. They've shared a feature for their Songs of Innocence track "Tune For Someone" that is spilling on Facebook as a 24-hour selective. Don’t let it go out…’ Illustrator and photographer Matt Mahurin directs this visual meditation on 'Song For Someone', from U2’s latest album Songs of Innocence.

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.

En Bonne Montréal U2 Fans

Montréal comes to a close as U2 fans look back over the few days of music and friends with great amazement. U2 has has always been about connecting with fans and Montréal fans got some extra extra treats this week. Bono welcoming Mirror Ball Man to the stage, An increase number of fans joined the band on stage.

Personal comment, leave your phone or camera in your pocket and taken the whole experience. As one blogger site called the stage invite "Controlled chaos" this stop along the tour has some memorable experiences for a few fans.  Our camera man happened to capture some great fans inside and outside this this time. We are still looking for that U2TOURFANS sign. Maybe Chicago fans will bring it out !   The set list has a few changes however what really is different about each show really is how the band interacts with the fans.

Bono seems to be more interactive, chatty or just engaged with the fans of Montreal speaking in French a few times, inviting fans to the stage and of course helping us remember those that need to be remembered.  Its an experience. That's the best way to describe the series.

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.
