  1. 11 Films of Innocence airing for 24 hours ... plus 12th, special to U2.com subscribers.

     

    Some of the world's most acclaimed urban artists have created a unique series of films inspired by Songs of Innocence.  

    Taking the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 wanted to celebrate the unique democratic power of urban art. The collection, Films Of Innocence, goes on sale tomorrow on iTunes and Amazon but for 24 hours from today, the eleven films are being premiered on 11 different platforms. See below for details on where to see the films.

    A 12th film is inspired by 'The Crystal Ballroom', one of the bonus tracks on the album. This film was made by Conor Harrington and today we're airing it exclusively for subscribers to U2.com.

    U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015 

     

    The band are heading out on the road again, playing indoor arenas for the first time in a decade.

    The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour will see U2 play 19 cities worldwide next year, with pairs of shows in each city. Special shows are being planned for Dublin for the end of next year to benefit the U2-initiated Music Generation project and details will follow once they are finalised. 

    “We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two,” said Bono, “and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More to be revealed!”

    Tickets for all shows go on general sale next Monday - December 8th - but presales to paid U2.com subscribers begin tomorrow, Thursday December 4th. (Read about the new U2.com subscription offer and ticket presales here.) 

    Songs Of Innocence, gifted by Apple to over half a billion iTunes Music Store customers, has now been streamed 81m times and downloaded by 30m fans. 

    "The anticipation for a U2 tour is always extraordinary, as it should be," said Arthur Fogel, President, Global Touring and Chairman, Global Music. "Following the record-setting 360° Tour I'm amazed that they still want to be ground-breaking, this time on a more intimate scale."

  3. Songs Of Innocence is inspired by the band's earliest days in Dublin – the gigs they went to, the places they hung out in, the friends they made. 


    That story of U2's emergence in the late 1970's  is nowhere captured better than in North Side Story, the special Hot Press publication for U2.com subscribers.
     

    Here's some of the ways in which Songs of Innocence and North Side Story are a perfect combination.
