New York City: Who has that magic eight ball? Call the psychic hotline! Anyone's guess as to what is up with U2 right now. The boys have been in and out of the studio for some time.
The challenge to make an album that can stand the test of time, push the band over the edge of yesterday's mega rock band into tomorrow's hipster cool Williamsburg, Brooklyn craft beer drinking fans next musical phase.
Oh shit, we sure to piss off yesterday's fans now. Shit, We have done it. U2 hardcore fans just want a fresh new album. Not really caring about charts, Grammy awards any of that other crap associated with the business of music.
Truth told. Its a business and the boys do earn a nice living from our support. To think that they are not interested in new fans is very naive of us. The music business has changed. Downloads, Steaming are king! Bands must tour to achieve mega cash. U2 is no different a solid album leads to a mega tour combining the old and new fans. This last album right or wrong, indifference to what we think the album did bring some new fans to the party. MSG was sold out for a week, and while looking around the crowd, we could spot fresh faces singing the new and yes old songs.
It's Christmas time in New York and all we could ask Santa for this year is a taste of some fresh new U2 beats and oh yea some tour calendar info. Well U2 fans around the world. We are blessed beyond measure, and we trust that you enjoy your holiday season with friends and family and most of all remember to help someone achieve their goals helps you make yours.
