When I saw this picture of the U2 singer performing at Anaheim, I thought it proved his is Bono fide rocker. I think the picture just oozes coolness naturally. Seriously don’t you just love that photograph?
They tried to capture the rocker look for Tom Cruise in this promo shot for Rock of Ages, but it looks faked. Maybe Bono can show him how it is done!
Christina Aguilera was suppose to tour this summer, but yesterday her people announced that she has cancelled it. According to Reuters they said that it was due to her working on her album that comes out next month and her upcoming movie Burlesque that is out in November and she felt she needed more time to rehearse. They concluded by saying that she will announce new dates later on this year. My personal translation of the cancellation, tickets weren’t selling so that is why they cancelled the tour and that they are trying to find another name to add to the bill to help sales. I could be wrong.
While Christina needs more time to rehearse, Bono needs more time to recuperate after his emergency back surgery last week and U2 was forced to cancel their North American. U2′s website says the dates will be rescheduled for 2011.
Personal note: To my friends Joele and Matt, I am so sorry U2 cancelled I know you guys were really looking forward to seeing them…:(
U2 announced on their site that Bono underwent emergency back surgery after suffering an injury while rehearsing for their upcoming tour dates.
Bono has today undergone emergency back surgery for an injury sustained during tour preparation training. He was admitted to a specialist neuro surgery unit in a Munich hospital, and is under the care of neuro surgeon Prof. Dr. Jorg Tonn and Dr Muller Wohlfahrt. Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate.
Once his condition has been assessed further, a statement will be made regarding the impact on forthcoming tour dates.
So far they announced that their June 3rd will be rescheduled.
No word how the 50 year old singer injured his back, but I am picturing he either did it bending over to pick something up or having sex with his wife. Chances are it wasn’t either and it was something boring, but I will keep picturing my scenarios.
BTW I still can’t believe Glee called U2′s hit One that came out in 1991 Classic Rock. I am sorry, but songs under 20 years old are not Classic Rock.
U2 is beginning a week of performances on CBS’s David Letterman tonight, but before they even played their first note Letterman put them to work. NY was hit by a late snow storm yesterday and the late night host made them shovel his sidewalk. If I were U2, I tell him another 2 word phrase that has U in it…FU!
Hey you U2 fans Get On Your Boots because they will be spending a whole week performing on CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman starting on March 2nd. The week is corresponding with the release of their delayed 12th album, No Line on the Horizon that comes out on March 3rd.
I really hope U2 asks Joaquin Phoenix to do a song with them! How hot would that be?
The long awaited U2′s album No Line on the Horizon finally got a release date after many delays. Their 12th studio album will be released on March 3. After almost 5 years of waiting since their last one, U2 fans have found what they are looking for in 2009! Hopefully it won’t disappoint!
This is a must for every U2 fan!!! Universal announced that they are re-issuing and re-mastering their first 3 albums Boy, October and War on July 22nd!
Each album will be released in physical and digital formats; as a standard single disc, a deluxe double version including a disc of b-sides, live tracks and rarities, and an LP version pressed on 180gm virgin vinyl
The packaging on all three titles has been restored and expanded, with new liner notes for each record, previously unseen photos and full lyrics.
I am not even close to the hugest U2 fan, but I am going to run out and by the 3 albums when they come out next month! Sunday Bloody Sunday is one of the best songs and I can't wait to hear it remastered!!!
A church has announced it is planning a service using U2 hits instead of hymns. St Swithin’s Church in Lincoln will hold what is thought to be the country’s first Holy Communion with rock music in May. The event, which it has dubbed "U2-charist", is based on similar initiatives which have been used in the USA in recent years to attract more worshipers. A band will cover the songs, which will include Mysterious Ways and Beautiful Day and the congregation will sing along karaoke style with lyrics on a big screen. The service will also look at the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals which have been championed by U2′s Bono. The Right Reverend Timothy Ellis, The Bishop of Grantham, said services should be fun. "The Millennium Development Goals are extremely important for the future of the world," he commented. "It is also very important that we continue to try to find ways of worshipping that are surprising, challenging and fun." He continued: "Rock music can be a vehicle of immense spirituality."
