February 2023 has a few cool things happen and some bizarre aerial shenanigans as well. It turns out that old saying is true; life can be stranger than fiction. Case in point, U2 is back.
In a week that has seen Foo Fighters, OK … (UFOs) flying over the country that are being brought down, and an out of this world ad for the MSG Sphere at the Venetian, one can argue U2 has our attention.
At this year’s Super Bowl, we got the much-anticipated announcement by way of a very-very cool and slick add we expected. This was of course, part of the annual tradition of dynamic Super Bowl commercials.
U2 will be launching the new MSG Sphere entertainment venue this fall in Sin City. It’s been under construction for a while and now we know who will christen the venue.
It’s been a minute since U2 has played live, four years to be exact. And now it is time to see “U2: UV Achtung Baby Live at the Sphere.” The inaugural shows will take place over multiple nights and the Irish lads will focus on their 1991 mega-album, “Achtung Baby.” That album had so many era-defining hits: “The Fly,” “One,” “Mysterious Ways,” and “Even Better Than the Real Thing.”
The only hiccup is drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. is healing from surgery, so Bram van den Berg will fill in behind the drum kit. Aside that, the band is solid with Bono on vocals, The Edge will shred on lead guitar, Adam Clayton will jolt our senses on bass.
Get ready for an out of this world experience with U2 at The Sphere!
Look for details about the shows at the verified Live Nation website. In the meantime, check out their latest, “Songs of Surrender” to get your U2 fix.
