In the latest edition of @U2 Originals, discover the U2 connections in recent cinema, learn what it's like to see yourself on screen at a U2 show, gain insight into the healing powers of music and more. Read/listen to our entire collection of original May content here:

New staffer Jacki Saunders wrote her debut article, tackling a serious subject with her U2 Lists piece, "10 U2 Songs About Mental Illness."

We also had a meaningful guest contribution from AJ Hartnett, titled "Miracle Drug: Harnessing U2's Healing Power During Cancer Treatment."

Sherry Lawrence and Tim Neufeld resurrected our Like a Song series, with their separate takes on "A Sort of Homecoming."

Our youngest staffer, Sienna James, shared her perspective of what it's like to be a teenage U2 fan.

Eric Gifford, Mason Merritt and Collin Souter collaborated on "The Reel Thing: U2's History on Film."

We had OTR columns from Sherry Lawrence (preparing for the tour), Sherry Lawrence (reviewing the first show of the tour) and Sherry Lawrence (identifying trends on the tour so far). Thanks for the triple-duty, Sherry!

Continuing our coverage celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree, we produced the following features:

  • Scott Calhoun shared a throwback interview about the album with Dave Fanning.
  • Tassoula E. Kokkoris wrote about the literary connection to "Red Hill Mining Town."
  • Karen Lindell introduced us to one of the stars of the live "One Tree Hill" video on the current tour.
  • Sherry Lawrence compiled highlights from vintage Joshua Tree articles from 1987.

You can also find photos from the shows via our Flickr account and videos via our YouTube page.
