@U2.com hosting Killing Bono Film Reception with Neil McCormick-Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts



@U2 is proud to host a reception and conversation with Neil McCormick, the pop/rock music critic for The Telegraph and author of the book Killing Bono/I Was Bono's Doppelganger, which tells the story of Neil's attempts to start a music career while watching his classmates become U2.

Neil's book has been turned into a feature film, Killing Bono, which will be screened on July 25, 2011 at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center (LPPAC) in Midland, PA -- a short drive north of Pittsburgh. That's the night before U2's concert at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Our reception begins right after the film. We're aiming for a start time of about 9:30 pm, and we'll probably continue until 11:30 pm. We'll talk to Neil about

  • the movie
  • U2 and the 360 tour
  • going to school with Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry
  • all kinds of other stuff that U2 fans would want to know

We'll also be taking questions from our audience during the event, so start thinking now what you'd want to know!

Many members of our @U2 staff will be at the reception and we look forward to meeting you. Read below for all the details about this special event!

Killing Bono Screening

Date: July 25, 2011

Time: 7:30 pm

Cost: Free

Although the movie screening is free, tickets are required. You can order them online now via the LPPAC website.

@U2 Post-Film Reception with Neil McCormick

Date: July 25, 2011

Time: immediately after the film (think 9:30 pm start time and 11:30 end time or thereabouts)

Cost: $10

Tickets: Reserve your space online

Tickets are also required for our event, and can also be purchased online at the LPPAC website. (This link is to a different page than the Screening link above.)

What's Included?

The $10 cost allows us to provide food and soft drinks to all attendees. The food is best described as "heavy hors d'oeuvres." In addition, beer and wine will be available at a nominal cost.

And seriously ... where else can you get a movie, food and drinks for only $10 in this day and age? (Not to mention the chance to chat about U2 with Neil McCormick and a bunch of your fellow fans!)
