Who the F**K is Arthur Fogel?
« on: July 19, 2014, 11:32:34 AM »
I started a documentary on Netflix last night called Who the F**K is Arthur Fogel? It's about the legendary Canadian concert promoter, and it's got heaps of U2 footage and interviews in it. It's recent too, since they interview Oseary and call him Madonna's and U2's manager.

Super entertaining and informative, well worth a look.

Wrapping it up now.  I liked the insight on the part of the 360 Tour where Bono's back surgery meant a cancellation of over a 1,000,000 tickets and a record-breaking insurance claim.  And the fact that there was a very small refund request...meaning people held on to their tickets for 2 years in some cases.

And Arthur Fogel also believes U2 is the greatest band in the world.   

But in the end, I'm just feeling disappointed that I am not at a U2 show, have not recently been to a U2 show, and not have a U2 show to look forward to.

I saw this a couple months ago after seeing it mentioned here. It was pretty great.

Lots of Bono and Fogel has a pretty cool story as well. Even Lady Gaga said some things I agreed with. Recommended.
