I'm pretty sure they've performed at friends' weddings -- maybe not the whole band, but just a member or two. Andrea Corr? Gavin Friday? Others? When they do that, is it objectionable? I can't imagine Bono and Adam charging Jony Ive for a performance at his birthday. Right? They've been close friends for a decade or more.

It feels to me like we've reached a point where fans are looking for things to get upset about. It's like when you get on Twitter in the morning and ask, "What are we all angry about today?"

One last point: I don't think this was a paid/corporate gig, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did a few such gigs all the way back in the 80s. I could see it being done for Island/Warner Brothers people ... or Polygram people after they bought Island ... etc. Difference being that social media didn't exist back then, so there was no opportunity for anyone to tell the world what was going on.
Yup. Exactly.

Yep. Welcome to online message boards for bands. Or the Internet even, in general.

I really couldn't give a s#*t to be honest, Who cares what private gigs they do!? Seriously, this is the bad part of the internet, Stop moaning and look forward to the tour starting :D I'm just glad these guys are still making music and touring, and aren't quite ready to pack in leaving us with the chart crap that gets served up nowadays

well it seems the first few replies were the only ones mad. the rest are using common sense and realizing it's just complaining to complain.

To be fair, the ones accused of "complaining" (myself included) all prefaced it by writing "If the band were compensated". No one is complaining if like M2 said it was likely a free show for a friend. But please carry on, because as one of the "complainers" i obviously have no common sense.

No. It does not. If they did this for free, or for money, it is no concern of ours and nobody should be concerned or put out by it. Absolutely ridiculous.

Pretty insignificant. Playing a gig for Salesforce was the real problem. Pathetic actually.

How very rock n roll.....

so help me understand. is this a bigger issue than the ipod, blackberry, or the itunes deal? i mean i'm not sure where the line is drawn. so many have said that each of those is the ultimate sell out move. are those that think this is a huge sell out move equating it to being in apples back pocket or whatever? i'm not trying to argue i'm just trying to see how it's different, or is it not different?

No, that was the one in California, if I recall correctly. The Vegas one was iHeartRadio.

I'm betting that show was the inspiration for a JT tour. The stage layout is pretty similar to the map.

At least the proceeds from the Salesforce gig went to charity....

The one in Cali? If I remember correctly, they used parts of the Vertigo stadium stage for that.
