Just reaching out to any U2 fans in the Cork area, Ireland, to let you now that local record store Music Zone Douglas Village is opening just before midnight on the 1st of December for the release of Songs Of Experience. There will be live in-store music provided by an excellent local band The Burma; and Ray the owner is hoping to get a wall of local fans' memoribilia on display for the evening. I think that it might be the only midnight opening in Ireland There will also be an in-store competition for a few select items courtesy of Universal Music Ireland and the ever reliable Music Zone itself (see below)! As they say 'no purchase is necessary' (although clearly preferred) so please feel free to drop by and enjoy the craic You can find more details at the store's Twitter account Music Zone @MusicZoneDV
