"People would not react if I went out and carried on like Elvis Presley or Mick Jagger or David Bowie. People do react if I go out and carry on like Bono. And I like that."

VIDEO: U2 Pays Tribute to Mike Peters & The Alarm

Posted: April 20, 2014
By: Matt McGee

U2 will show up this week in a pre-taped BBC Radio Wales special in honor of the 30th anniversary of The Alarm's album, Declaration. If you follow us on Twitter, you may have seen some of the tweets back on April 11 about U2's brief video that was played during the taping of the concert special. The BBC made that video available for all to see now (embedded below). It begins with U2 singing "Happy Birthday" and ends with them doing The Alarm's "Blaze Of Glory." Bono delivers a short message in between.

The Mike Peters/Alarm special is due to air at 9 pm local time on BBC Radio Wales.

 

Poll Results: Most Fans Say U2 Has 2 Albums Left Max

Posted: April 20, 2014

U2 fans aren't optimistic about the band having many more studio albums left in their career.

In a recent @U2 survey, almost 76 percent of fans said they think U2 will release two more studio albums or less. Almost 40 percent said there'll be only one more U2 studio album, and more than 12 percent said U2 won't release any more studio albums.

We posted the question on March 7th, the same day that Billboard magazine reported that U2's next album won't be released until 2015 -- a report that U2's spokespeople denied a couple days later. More than 3,400 fans voted during the two weeks that the poll was open.

On the flip side of the coin, 15 percent of fans think U2 will release three more studio albums and more than five percent voted "5 or more." Here are the full results.

One of the common things fans say when it looks like the new album gets pushed back is along the lines of "it gives us more time to save money for the next tour." So that's our new poll question: Have you started saving money for U2's next tour? Let us know by voting on our home page.

 

Take @U2's 'Which Member of U2 are you?' Quiz

Posted: April 02, 2014
By: Matt McGee

You've seen those quizzes online, right? You know, the ones that let you answer questions to find out things like What Star Wars Character Are You?, What Justin Bieber Song Are You? and so forth.

There are several websites offering these quizzes regularly, but we noticed that there's a severe lack of U2-related quizzes. In fact, we don't think there are any. (Gasp!) So, the @U2 crew is setting out to change that, starting today with our first quiz:

Which member of U2 are you?

It's only 12 questions and shouldn't take too long. You'll get your result as soon as you click the "Finish" button at the end. When you're done, be sure to tweet about it or share it with your friends on Facebook so you can compare who's Bono with who's Larry, Edge or Adam.

And no ... I'm not telling which band member I am. Not yet.

 

12th Annual AWF Build A Well For Bono's Birthday Kicks Off

Posted: April 01, 2014
By: Sherry Lawrence

With 40 days to go before Bono's 54th birthday on May 10, the African Well Fund has kicked off its annual "Build A Well" campaign. According to the AWF site, this year's "Invisible"-inspired theme, "there is no them, there's only us" will "benefit a community-based water and sanitation project in the Ebo municipality of the Kwanza Sul Province in Angola. The project aims to increase access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation for more than 12,000 people living in these communities."

As in previous years once a donation is made, fans are encouraged to sign the birthday card. All well wishes will be conveyed to Bono at the conclusion of the "Build A Well For Bono's Birthday" campaign.

Over the past 11 years, fans have generously donated over $225,000 for Bono's birthday.
