  1. as requested, this is a mega-merge of where the singer turns up on the www.
  2. hello all. The reason this sub-forum was set up (by multiple request), was to be a home for all the rumours out there, news links from other sites, from fans etc, that is not official, but is being covered somewhere on the www... so while it might seem sometimes that 'we have heard all this before' etc, well thats kind of the point of it.. I think. We often hear criticism that other fan sites are posting the latest gossip / photos / items of interest first, so by having this space open it means that doesn't have to be the case. I think febottini & others who post often and fast are bang up to date and accurate with links to U2-mentioned stuff out there - and also are good at giving the credits out to the original sources of the info, which is cool. I will have a good look through and merge topics thats should be together though, see if it can be tightened up a bit.

      Great! waiting for the rest :)

  5. Over the years many fans have asked the question, 'Are there online copies of Propaganda magazine?' Well, until now, officially the answer has been no. Back in the early days of U2.com a few articles from Propaganda were made available online, but never a full edition (not officially anyway). Very excited to see the Achtung Baby Scrapbook Edition chosen as the magazine to debut back issues of Propaganda online, and to have been involved in the creation of the online editions. Its been a long time coming, but I think the U2.com team has come up with a great way for all subscribers hereto be able to view some fantastic content, some of it never before seen online. It looks great of any computer or mobile device, and very cool is the way you can flick through in full screen, zoom in & out and jump to selected pages very smoothly. We are all invited to add comments as to what we think and asked which edition would we like to see made available next - so please make your choice known by leaving a comment here, or over on the main U2.com article page. Achtung ya'll...
  6. U2 hat on. Stay tuned...

    Bono's Birthday

    Bono born this day in Ballymun, Dublin, 10th May 1960
  8. This Friday, 10th May is Bono's birthday & here is a chance to join a group of dedicated fans in celebrating our singer's 53rd by getting involved in a great project... Formed in October 2002 by a group of U2 fans inspired by a visit there by Bono, African Well Fund is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for building and maintaining wells in Africa. Struck by the relatively low cost of building a well and the enormous difference that a well can make in the life of a village, they were convinced that raising the money to build a well was an easily achievable goal. Each year U2 fans are invited to help Africare 'build a well for Bono's birthday', and to date have raised $220,000 to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects, that are benefiting more than 56,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Uganda and Zimbabwe. This years fundraiser specifically aims to raise $10,000 (of which they have raised 25% to date), to fully fund the Mali Dibaro School WASH Project, a $50,000 project to be implemented by Africare that will benefit over 1,800 schoolchildren and community members. There's no official link to Bono or U2 but if you'd like to donate or get involved you can find out more here, and even add your birthday message, which will be included in a card that will be sent to Bono / care of Principle Management.
  9. Good luck with that one... I am sending out positive energy vibes westward...
