Get U2 Tickets!
If a person was going to go and get tickets to see any concert in their lifetime, U2 is the one to see. Their music is truly one-of-a-kind. When adding in the dynamic stage show, it makes for an incredible night. They are the penultimate rock band and a ticket stub from one of their shows is a piece of rock and roll history.
There is not much left to say that has not already been said about the Irish rock band U2. They were formed in Dublin, Ireland, in 1996 by Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. Their post-punk influences showed in their early music but as time went on, they have shown their unique ability to give the audience what they want. Their style, while basically remaining the same over the years, alters just enough to keep up with the times.
Larry Mullen was the originator of the idea to form a band and he posted a note on a school bulletin board at the age of 14 looking for members. According to him, once Bono entered the room, he knew he had no chance of being in charge. They began as a cover band called "Feedback" because it was one of the few technical terms they knew. After only a few short weeks, the "band" was short a few members. In 1977 they changed their name yet again, this time to "The Hype," and continued to play as a simple cover band.
In 1978, they appeared on a talent show in Limerick, Ireland, and won it handily. In addition the first place prize money, they were afforded the opportunity to record a demo album. They recorded their first demo in May of that year and it was showcased to CBS Ireland as part of their prize package. Their first actual release was limited to an Irish only audience but in 1979, they finally had their first gig out of Ireland and performed in London.
The following years saw their music alter in style from overtly spiritual to political overtones and everything in between. The band appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1987 and became only the fourth band in history to have accomplished this at that time. The band drew on influences from such artists as Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Van Morrison to help shape their musical styling. These influences have served the band well as in early 2011, its tour was named the highest grossing tour in history with earnings of over $558 million dollars.
