Entertainment : U2

From the beginning, U2 were marked out by their drive and ambition, forming as a band “… before they could play”. Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton met at Mt. Temple School and formed U2 in 1978. Having approached every record label, they signed to Chris Blackwell’s Island Records and produced their first three albums with Steve Lillywhite; Boy (1980), October (1981) and War (1983). Fourth album The Unforgettable Fire (1984) was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. They developed a loyal and growing fan base through their records and extensive touring, with their Live Aid performance in July 1985 seeing them break through to the mainstream. Then came The Joshua Tree album and tour and their first Time Magazine cover, in 1987 declaring “U2 Rock's Hottest Ticket”. Arena dates rolled into stadium dates and The Joshua Tree went on to win the Grammy for Album of the Year in 1987, with a sixth studio album Rattle and Hum released the following year. The band released Achtung Baby at the dawn of the 90’s and set off on the ground-breaking and futuristic Zoo TV Tour, which travelled the globe twice in two years. That momentum spawned Zooropa, planned as a single and recorded on the road, that grew into an EP and eventually became U2’s eighth album in 1993. U2 returned with All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000); playing a series of gigs in small clubs for the first time in 17 years, Bono announced that U2 were reapplying for their old job - the world’s biggest rock band. As they took the Elevation Tour through Europe and the States (twice) in 2001, the unanimous verdict was that they had succeeded. Following the release of How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb in 2005 U2 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

No Line On The Horizon was released in 2009 and the U2 360° tour began in Barcelona in June of that year. U2 360° toured across Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Latin America – taking in a 2011 headline slot at Glastonbury along the way - and became the highest grossing tour of all time. Acknowledged as one of the best live acts in the world, U2 have released 13 studio albums and have sales in excess of 157 million. They have won numerous awards; including 22 Grammys, an Oscar nomination and the Amnesty International, Ambassador of Conscience. In 2003 they won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, The Hand’s That Built America, featured in Gangs of New York. 2014 saw U2 nominated for an Oscar for Ordinary Love from the feature film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, as well as take home the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. U2’s thirteenth studio album Songs of Innocence was released by Island Records in October 2014 following the album being gifted by Apple to over half a billion iTunes Music Store customers worldwide. The critically acclaimed sold-out iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour, on which U2 would “reinvent the arena show” (Rolling Stone), opened in Vancouver in May last year - and has to date seen the band play to over 1.2 million fans in 22 cities across Europe and North America. A concert film U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE – Live In Paris, set for release on 10th June, captures the ground-breaking tour as it returned to the French capital for two very special shows in December last year.
