U2 releases another 'American Soul' video

Posted: March 22, 2018
By: Matt McGee

U2 has released another video for "American Soul," perhaps hoping to capitalize on any increased interest that the song is generating as the main theme song for CBS' coverage of the ongoing NCAA men's basketball tournament.

This version of the video combines some of the animation from the original video with live performance shots from U2's appearance on the Grammy Awards in late January. You can catch the video on U2's Vevo and YouTube channels, or just watch below.


Rolling Stone: U2's Experience + Innocence tour will feature augmented reality

U2's upcoming Experience + Innocence tour will be "the first concert tour to incorporate augmented reality." That's a quote attributed to Willie Williams in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, which includes a preview of several 2018 tours. U2's longtime tour designer also says the E+I tour "staging takes that of its predecessor to a new level," referring not to last year's Joshua Tree 2017 tour, but the 2015 indoor Innocence + Experience tour.

Deena Dietrich tweeted the brief U2 E+I tour bit earlier today, which says U2 plans to play longer sets and tells fans to expect plenty of new songs, hits and "rarities that the band is excited to be playing live for the first time." Here's the full Rolling Stone bit from Deena's tweet.


Confirmed: No opening acts for Experience + Innocence tour

We've all been assuming as much, and now we can confirm that there will be no opening acts during the upcoming Experience + Innocence tour. @U2 got confirmation of that this morning via the band's communications team.

It makes sense: The tour is a companion to 2015's Innocence + Experience tour, which itself had no opening acts. During that tour, showtime was typically listed as 7:30 p.m. and U2 took the stage at about 8:15 p.m. (For some shows that year, add 30 minutes to each of those times.) On this year's tour, all of the North American shows are listed with an 8:00 p.m. start time, so we're guessing the band will take the stage somewhere between 8:30 - 9:00 p.m.
