    We can't fall any further if,
    we can't feel ordinary love.
    And we cannot reach any higher,
    if we can't deal with ordinary love…'

     

    The chorus to Ordinary Love and one of the songs that might - MIGHT - turn up in the new show.

    In fact, the word from Show Director Willie Williams is that there’s an idea to feature you all singing that chorus of the song Ordinary Love in the show, The Joshua Tree Tour 2017.

    Singing it in ordinary situations: walking the dog, on the treadmill, at the supermarket, doing the ironing, baking a cake, driving the car, in the shower…

    It’s early days and the idea might not make the cut…. but you could make the difference.

    Can you see yourself on screen at the show ? In the chorus, backing the band as they play Ordinary Love?

    If you can, here’s what you have to do (in a few easy steps) and please get it our way by MAY 1ST.

  4. The band are bringing the iNNOCENCE & eXPERIENCE Tour home to Ireland.

    U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE  European Tour 2015 will finish with six home shows in Ireland -  two shows in Belfast on 18th & 19th November and four shows in Dublin on 23rd + 24th, 27th + 28th November.

    It’s a  year since the band released Songs Of Innocence, an album exploring their earliest experiences of growing up in Dublin influenced by 70’s rock and punk and early 80’s electronica - and now they’ll be performing those songs to a home crowd for the first time.

    Tickets for the Irish shows go on sale at 9am on Monday 14th September,  will be limited to 2 per purchaser and are priced from £30 to £165 for Belfast and from €30 to €185 in Dublin, plus charges.

    Tickets can be bought at the venue box offices and online.

    Paid subscribers to U2.com will be emailed details of presales.

     

    €2 million raised from these concerts will go to Music Generation, Ireland’s National Music Education Programme which currently provides high quality subsidised music tuition to some 26,000 children and young people. Music Generation was originally set up with €5m funding from U2’s 2009 shows at Croke Park, along with a further €2m raised by The Ireland Funds.

    'In the 18 years that I have worked with U2, the home shows are always very special.’ said Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring Live Nation Ent. ‘These shows promise to be brilliant.’

    'Finding venues to take this show is actually quite tricky,’ added The Edge. ‘We’re grateful to our overworked crew who finally cracked the reconfiguring to fit these venues.'

    The Dublin and Belfast dates are:

    Wed, 18th and Thurs, 19th November - Belfast – SSE Arena

    Mon 23rd, Tues 24th, Fri 27th & Sat 28th November - Dublin – 3Arena

    What was the defining special moment?


  6. After more than 10 years as a zoo mod today, sadly, Baja has decided to step down from her role.

     

    She has let the u2comteam know who in reply said :

     

    "I think we are wise when we can 'listen to our life' as a writer called Fred Buechner puts it - and sometimes we listen and think it's time for a change.

    ...You have been a great friend to the band and a great storehouse of energy and information and advice in the forums over the years - we hugely appreciate all you have done for us".

     

    Baja made a post on her Facebook page and fans have left really nice comments in appreciation for all she has done for them, for the U2 community in that time.

    We thought it would be a nice tribute to have a special thread here, where we can all, in our own way, say thanks to Baja.
