New York: Often fans wonder about the end, the last gasp, the final note, the massive break up and the music world there have been few major break ups. Ever wonder how the demise started? Was it the screwing of a girlfriend, shorting the performance pay, claiming the band leader role when you could not even tie a shoe? Well, those reasons are all true. Often bands depart ways for creative differences or at least that's what the record label promotes so as to give you the illusion that tomorrow could bring them back.
Rock and Roll's critics have for years told the fans that ROCK IS DEAD. The last gasp happened many years ago when, Mic, Dave or Jimmy blew out your ears. Could it be true? Could we have heard the last of the greats? By now if you are still reading this rambling crap your wondering what the FUCK does this have to do with U2?
U2 has managed to stay the course. The course that riddled with pot holes, political outcries, failed loves, failed marriages and so much more yet you the fan have never heard a word of it. Nor will you so don't get your hopes up for some juicy gossipy stories about the boys. It just does not happen outside the core. No, a word was spoken. Rightfully so any crew worth its weight in gold knows the value of shutting up, keeping the laundry in the house. Just the mere idea to imply that the boys have issues like you and or we breaks the illusion of a great rock band.
The future is right around the corner, change will happen, change is good, bad and indifferent to your concerns. It's a force of nature that allows for growth and possibility.
The marketing machine has been at work, notice some U2 stories appearing around the world. It's time; you can almost feel it. For us, at U2TOURFANS it is about the music pure and straightforward as it is. Yes, of course, we are interested in the lives of the band members, crew, and of course the groupies, however, it's the same story from town to town, country to country and by now we have heard them all.
As we told you before September is right around the corner, clear your minds, listen to some fresh, innovative tunes as we all await the arrive of something amazing. Bet you are asking why we call it AMAZING. Well, that's easy, AMAZING because in a time when the world is in chaos it's music that brings all together and for one night we all singing as one. It order us to continue we must remember that its music that connects us and that with music would, maybe change the world.
