U2 EXPERIENCE + INNOCENCE – LIVE IN BERLIN Screened For The First Time On March 14

Saturday, March 14th, was a special day: not only was it Pi Day (3.14), but the U2 concert film U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE – LIVE IN BERLIN screened live in 4k for the first time in a special subscribers-only event. U2 fanclub members watched live online, reminiscing about the show and tour on Zootopia (the U2 fanclub forum) and other social media sites. Viewers shared photos and thoughts with the hashtags “#U2Berlin4k” and “#AdamClayton60,” as the screening also commemorated our favorite bassist’s 60th birthday! More on that below.

If you missed the live event, worry not! Fanclub members can access and view the entire show any time for the remainder of 2020. This content is available only to subscribers; visit U2.com to sign up for a membership.

Bono Joins Mystery Art Sale INCOGNITO

Bono is one of the latest artists to join INCOGNITO, a public art initiative sponsored by the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. Heading into its fourth year, INCOGNITO is a yearly initiative that raises money for home care for children with severe illnesses or disabilities. Artwork created by famous artists or public figures is auctioned for €50 ($55.80) on a first-come, first-serve basis. The catch? The celebrity artist is kept secret until after the piece is sold.

Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Scialfa, and over 1,600 other artists are contributing approximately 2,600 pieces of art to this year’s fundraiser. Last year, INCOGNITO raised over €120,000 ($133,909.80).


Ali Hewson Reflects On The Career Paths Of Her And Bono’s Children

Speaking at a Chernobyl charity event, Ali Hewson shared her views on her children’s career paths. Jordan, 30, is a tech entrepreneur; Eve, 28, is an actor; Elijah, 20, is the frontman for up-and-coming alternative band Inhaler; Ali’s youngest child, John, is 18. While going into the entertainment industry was “the last thing [she] wanted them to do,” Ali is happy each Hewson is finding their way. She noted that it is unlikely that Inhaler would ever open for U2, as Elijah is “definitely separate” from his father’s limelight.
