We'll take our show of the month to a new level on 28 April, where we will gather with U2 fans around the world to listen "live" to this fabulous show. The broadcast will start at 17:00 PM GMT time on this page.
A twitter feed, U2start LiveTopics and a live audio stream will be present. We hope it all works fine, this is also a bit of a test/premiere for us. We hope you will participate, mark it in your agenda already to make sure you will be there
"We're at a point where production has gotten so slick that people don't trust it anymore... We were starting to lose trust in the conventional sound of rock & roll - the conventional sound of guitar ... those big reverb-laden drum sounds of the '80s or those big, beautiful, pristine vocal sounds with all this lush ambience and reverb. So we found ourselves searching for other sounds that had more life and more freshness."
- The Edge, explaining the band's motivation for seeking a new sound with Achtung Baby
U2's song "God Part II", from the album Rattle and Hum, is a sort of 'sequel' to "God" by John Lennon. Both songs have a similar structure.
