Steve Averill to Keynote at U2 Conference Next Week

@U2, April 17, 2013
By: Matt McGee


Hot off the presses! Steve Averill has been added to the lineup for next week's U2 Conference in Cleveland. He'll be doing a keynote conversation/presentation called "Translating Sound To Vision: The Art of U2 – A Conversation With Steve Averill." It'll wrap up the conference on Saturday afternoon, April 27th, at 4:00 pm in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Foster Theater.

Averill is the man responsible for suggesting the name "U2" to the band when they were still going by "The Hype." His work with U2 then went on to involve designing almost all of the band's iconic visuals, from album and single covers to posters, tourbooks, promotional items and much more. Most recently, Averill's team at AMP Visual has designed the highly-praised fan club packages for U22 and From The Ground Up. You can learn more about Steve Averill on the conference website.

Yes, conference registration is still open, and you can get a room at the conference hotel, etc. The conference is happening next week - we hope to see you there!
