For U.S. fans, the U2 documentary ‘From the Sky Down’ doesn’t premiere until this coming weekend — it’s on Showtime on Saturday night — but since it already aired in the U.K., intrepid fans like u2opia100 have uploaded the 84-minute documentary about the making of ‘Achtung Baby’ to YouTube.
Peter Hook this morning called New Order’s surprise decision to reunite without him ‘very sad,’ saying ‘the other three’ didn’t tell him they’d decided to play two October concerts — and that, ultimately, ‘everyone knows New Order without Peter Hook is like Queen without Freddie Mercury, U2 without The Edge, Sooty without Sweep!’
U2 will mark the 20th anniversary of ‘Achtung Baby’ with massive 6CD/4DVD box set featuring remastered editions of the 1991 album and its 1993 follow-up ‘Zooropa,’ five 7-inch singles, ‘re-workings of previously unheard material, a new documentary and a pair of Bono’s ‘Fly’ sunglasses.
Just seven dates into the 360° Tour’s second European leg, U2 has now debuted four unreleased songs with the addition of tonight’s premiere of ‘Every Breaking Wave’ in Helsinki, Finland.
With their injury-delayed 360° Tour finally set to resume Friday in Turin, Italy, the members of U2 rehearsed Sunday onstage at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino — and treated fans assembled outside the stadium’s gates to what is believed to be a brand-new song.
While U2 was knocked out of its first-ever Glastonbury headlining slot by Bono’s recent tour-scuttling back surgery, fans still got a taste of the Irish megaband tonight when The Edge joined Muse for an encore of the all-time classic ‘Where the Streets Have No Name.’
Last year’s six-string doc “It Might Get Loud” was a must-see for fans of U2’s The Edge, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin or The White Stripes’ Jack White — or anyone, really, who appreciates loud rock guitar. The film’s out on DVD now, and here’s one of the deleted scenes that appears as bonus on the disc: It’s four minutes’ worth of The Edge soundchecking solo, running through concert staples “Until the End of the World,” “Pride (In the Name of Love”) and “Bad” alone on guitar, with just the aid of his foot-triggered console of effects.
