I think they will come up with something. But politics in it's normal mode is 'done' now. So they will need to look at something not fixated on American and European ideas.
Maybe something spiritual? Maybe temporal, such as an autobiographical account of raising up their contenders to the throne (if you believe the hype surrounding Hewson Junior).

I must live in a vacuum, I have never heard anything about Hewson junior nor do I really care to at a U2 concert as he and his band will have their own journey.  I just want them to come out and play lots of good music!

I couldn't imagine Bono would want Inhaler open for them - I think he would see that as a hindrance to what they may be trying to pursue. So my guess is your safe!

My Honest Face is one of my favorite songs this year. It has all the energy of early U2 with an updated sound. I'm really hoping they cobble together an entire album this year. Could be a lot of fun.

I'm sure I saw somewhere they have an album deal now

I don't visit the forum very often and stumbled across this thread, and would like to make a quick comment about the tape.

The attention on releasing the audio of the tape is inevitably of great interest to U2 fans, and U2 themselves were almost first off the blocks in requesting a copy of the full concert which they now have, via Pete the original taper of the show, and he also became very aware of the historical 'first' content. I have been very fortunate to be able to at least make the tape aware to all and sundry, I was quite amazed at the 'viral effect the internet has had on this artefact.

I was subsequently asked to discuss the tape (And other memorabilia that I own) with the management in Dublin.

By conicidence I am visiting Dublin soon, and a meeting has been arranged.

As part of that meeting, I am hoping that the band and/or management may give an update on their view of releasing the audio. It is obviously nothing like the band would have ever released before - it is not a soundboard recording made officially- think the 10" vinyl and download release of the fan club Another Time a few years back - but I am hoping to gently persuade that given the historical context that they should release it by way of a fan club release or archival box set that I am sure will be a future plan. All told, out of professional courtesy, that I had given an undertaking not to upload to a torrent site (it would be a first for me in any case to do so, I have never done an original upload, as all my live collection of concerts are all up on torrents, except the Dandelion of course) and I will respect in the meantime. They are satisfied that the short samples we posted on YouTube were done with that in mind and respect of their copywrite, etc, something that also needs to be considered.


To clarify is not my intention to hoard this tape at all, which is why I would love to see it displayed at the proposed museum, and I urge other fans to consider that they may have unique or interesting items from all eras of U2s career that the band simply will not have to be honest. I think they would welcome that interaction, and I plan to suggest that to management when we meet - how splendid it would be to see a mixture of fan memorabilia - even homemade - mixed with band artefacts.

I promise to advise the outcome of the meeting, 're audio, in the hope that I have permission from them to do so of course.

With best regards
Aaron

Thanks for the clarification Aaron - all the best with your discussions.

This is exactly as it should be handled.  As I said before, it should not be released without U2s permission.  They are the owners of the content on the tape and this is different than general bootlegs of current shows that are out there.
yup, I couldn't agree more.

Aaron provided the full story on the most recent atu2 podcast. He was given the tape and is going to donate it to the U2 museum in Dublin. U2 contacted him and asked him not to release it meantime. They were interested in the tape and got a digital copy from the guy who recorded and who is still a musician in Dublin. Here's the podcast link here. Aaron is a great guy, a fan and collector since way back and a friend of mine and would release it if he could I am sure. I am equally sure he can't and shouldn't without U2's permission even if it is only as a courtesy to them in light of their request. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
