    Better be "back to the U2 of old" or they ain't getting my $$$.

    With pop mart then 360.. They became one of "the bands they warned us about" back in 1983.

    Thank God for their "return to rock" tours of 2001 and 2005..
    Ever other tour they seem to get it right..

  • The new U2 song Invisible is now available for download from iTunes!!!

    Previous announcement from U2.com:
    [quote]Invisible - free for (RED)
    The band have given a new track, 'Invisible', to (RED) for a free download on iTunes next week - for 24 hours only.

    The song, produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst, launches a partnership with (RED) and Bank of America to fight AIDS.

    Every time the track is downloaded, anywhere in the world, a $1 donation will be made to (RED) by Bank of America - up to a total of $2m. All the funds will go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

    'Invisible' will be available on iTunes for 24hours from Feb 2nd - 'Super Bowl Sunday'. A commercial during the Super Bowl will feature the band performing the track, from a forthcoming video directed by Mark Romanek. [/quote]


    There's also a nice Making Of... video on Facebook.

    The band spent some serious cash during the Super Bowl.....did they have to do that?

    Peace

    I don't think the band spent any cash at all during the Super Bowl. That is if you leave out the costs for recording Invisible.
    That commercial was probably all paid for by Bank Of America, with U2 and (RED) lifting on the back of that promotion.

    Lets hope we don't hear anything as embarrassing as "get on your boots"
    Ugh!
    Time for this band to reclaim its throne as one of the greatest rock bands..!

    I agree..."boots" was garbage, but there's a few great moments on that last album...

    I think "unknown caller", "moment of surrender" and "magnificent" are totally killer, top notch U2 moments...but stuff like "standup comedy" really stinks up the joint and i always skip it.

    Sad to say I don't "get" Invisible, not at all :(( Ordinary Love is excellent, though.

    Keep in mind that Springsteen is a solo artist. He can act more quickly and use any session musicians he wants. He has totally autonomy. With U2 you have four band members who have to agree on things and have their schedules align.

    I had 15% off applied so it was only about a $5 difference for me, but, where the hell where you yesterday with this info?!?!

    Sorry. I actually posted it at another site yesterday too.

    Picked this up at Best Buy for $70. Would never spend $180 on this, but $70 - yeah, I can stomach $70. Achtung Baby is one of my all time favorite albums and helped turn me on to alternative music as an impressionable 11 year old.
