Each city on the trek will see U2 performing to sold-out crowds for at least two nights, while New York City takes the cake with a staggering number of six consecutive sold-out gigs.

Biography

 

u2 bioFounded in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland, U2 is a band that rose from post-punk club gigs to stratospheric heights of the world’s most successful rock band. Still a group of high school students, vocalist Bono, guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. laid foundation to what would result in their 1980 debut release “Boy.”

Nearly from the very get-go, the four-piece established a mixture of melody-driven alt rock vibe, combining it with mystic spiritual imagery and deep lyrics focusing on personal struggles, as well as social and politic issues.

The band’s first major jump occurred in 1983 with their third studio release, “War.” As the critics noted, the record saw U2 turning “pacifism itself into a crusade,” marking their first overtly political release. Both in terms of music quality and lyrical depth, songs like “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “New Year’s Day” established the group as a force not to be reckoned with.

Tackling touchy sociopolitical issues at the time, U2 went against the grain on all fronts, implementing crunchy guitar riffs to contradict the mellow synthpop vibe dominating the music charts at the time.

The success continued the following year with “The Unforgettable Fire,” whereas in 1987, a quantum leap had occurred. The band’s fifth studio album, “The Joshua Tree,” saw its release on March 9, instantly propelling straight to No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and ultimately selling 25 million copies around the globe. Hit singles “With or Without You,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where the Streets Have No Name” are inarguably staple songs of the rock genre, and have ensured Bono and co. a spot among the greats.

But the group didn’t stop there, not by a long shot. 1988’s “Rattle and Drum” became the band’s second consecutive No. 1 record in the US, but the end of the ’90s, the members began feeling uncomfortable within the stylistic and musical boundaries they’ve created. Kicking off the new decade, a bold move had taken place with 1991’s “Achtung Baby.” Darker and more sinister, the album saw the band shifting towards raw vibe, reinventing themselves and once again reaching No. 1 spot worldwide.

For the next two decades, U2 dominated both on the charts and in the arenas. They had seven No. 1 albums, five of which were released consecutively, as well as a plethora of sold-out shows and arena tours.

In 2014, they struck the controversy chord yet again with iTunes-released “Songs of Innocence.” Automatically added to every iTunes user’s account, it sparked a touchy debate regarding the value of music and the means of release these days.

Throughout the journey, Bono showed a remarkable business-savvy spirit, and is widely known as the owner of a $1-billion stake of social networking giant Facebook.

But it should never be forgotten that quality music is the root of the musical behemoth called U2. And in Bono’s words, “if I’m close to the music, and you are close to the music, we are close to each other.”
