"Maybe that is the step forward on this record, to be able to have the freedom to have humour sitting alongside songs that are deadly earnest, and the two actually balance out each other."

Update: Latest News on #U240Cleveland & #U240Dublin

u240-BOTH

The weekend of September 24-25 is getting closer and we have some news to pass along about #U240Cleveland and #U240Dublin, the two events we're putting on to celebrate U2's 40th anniversary.

#U240Cleveland

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has confirmed that tickets will cost $40 (how appropriate!) for the two-day event on Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25. The regular single-day entry price for the Hall is $23.50, so that's a 15% discount for U2 fans. The Hall also tells us that tickets should be available to buy through RockHall.com by the end of this week, and we'll post a link when that's ready for you.

As part of the admission price, you'll have access to the Hall's regular (and excellent) exhibits, many of which feature U2-related artifacts. There'll also be a big anniversary cake and a card for everyone to sign that will be sent to the band. We're still working with the Rock Hall to confirm all of the other plans for the weekend, and it may take a few more weeks, but here's an idea of what we collectively have in mind:

  • a film festival featuring several of U2's films and home video releases in the Rock Hall's state-of-the-art Foster Theater
  • panel discussions/interviews (potentially involving special guests) discussing U2's 40-year career, their music and impact, and more
  • an educational presentation highlighting U2's message and role in the Hall's existing Louder Than Words exhibit
  • a special exhibit featuring the U2 Tattoo Project (this one is already confirmed!)
  • more?

In addition, @U2 is organizing a separate event for U2 fans on Saturday night (Sept. 24). Sometime in the next couple days, we should have everything signed and paid for to confirm that we're renting out a movie theater in downtown Cleveland to show Rattle And Hum on the big screen! This will be a separately ticketed event -- not included in the Rock Hall admission price -- and we'll announce the ticket price (probably $10-$20) and how to buy tickets as soon as we can.

For all of the latest on this event, keep an eye on our #U240Cleveland event page.

#U240Dublin

Our Dublin party has long since sold out, but we also have some news to pass along for fans attending this event on Saturday, Sept. 24: The Joshua Tree is inviting fans to help choose the setlist for their performance! They've given us a list of 15 songs that U2 rarely plays in concert, and they've agreed to play the top four vote-getters. You can see that list of songs and cast your votes on our #U240Dublin event page.

We'll share new information about both events as soon as we can, so stay tuned to our home page and our social media accounts for the latest news. We can't wait to see you all in Dublin and Cleveland!
