U2 refused to play by the rules when they partnered with Apple for the shocking giveaway of their 'Songs of Innocence' album, and it sounds like they might also plan to defy a few expectations with their 2015 tour.
During the last week of October 1988, U2‘s anticipated concert movie ‘Rattle and Hum’ was released in their native Ireland.
U2's Bono hasn't been wearing sunglasses for the last two decades to look cool. Instead, he's battling a light sensitivity caused by glaucoma.
So here's how much music is apparently worth in 2014.
U2 has opened up about moving the band's publishing company from Ireland to the Netherlands, a decision that sparked massive protests at a signature UK music festival.
Spending years slaving over something and then giving it away by the millions seems like a pretty generous act, if you ask us.
U2's fourth album arrived just a little more than a year and a half after its punky predecessor 'War' had become a surprise platinum-selling hit, reaching No. 12 in the U.S. and topping the U.K. chart.
U2 have revealed the artwork for the upcoming physical release of 'Songs of Innocence,' the new album millions of iTunes users received for free earlier this month.
U2 singer Bono has never been known for his guitar playing, and his bandmates would really like to keep it that way.
Like it or not, music has been devalued to the point that a free album from one of the world's biggest bands is a cause of genuine annoyance (and/or more legitimate privacy concerns) for a lot of listeners.
