U2 must be Dublin’s greatest export after Guinness. And they’re just as adored by fans and critics worldwide as the famous black stout is. A measure of U2’s popularity can be gained from the fact that sales of U2 tickets for the most recent tour raised more than $550 million, making it the highest grossing tour in history.
It’s hard to imagine that Bono and the boys have been creating bestselling albums and performing live for thirty-five years, achieving world domination with their music and winning every conceivable music award in the process.
The statistics speak for themselves: U2 have picked up 22 Grammys, 7 Brits and 14 Meteor Awards, with a Golden Globe and induction into the Music Hall of Fame thrown in for good measure. Songs such as “Pride (In the Name of Love)”, “With or Without You” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” have become legendary.
They have twelve albums behind them and have sold more than 150 million records, making them one of the most commercially successful groups in history. Are they any good live? Well, according to the critics:
“The band is in a class of its own” (Hollywood Reporter)
“Prepare to be wowed all over again”. (The Telegraph)
“U2 is unassailable” (Baltimore Sun)
You get the idea.
U2 are the masters of the modern musical universe, loved by fans of all ages, old and new. Each U2 tour is more spectacular and memorable than the last. U2 tickets are on sale again: what are you waiting for?
