using quick search

U2start features a powerful quick search which you can find in the top menu bar. It takes a few keywords and returns shows, songs and forum topics. It's crucial to use the search wisely to retrieve the results you want. Below is a short list with tips to improve your search results:

  • Be specific: Pass as much keywords to return specific results.
  • Avoid common words: Searching on common words is useless. You will get too many results.

You want to go to the 1997 Leeds show? Just type '1997 Leeds' and the correct show will be returned. This works for all known U2-shows! When you start your query with 'lyrics' you can find songs easily. Example: 'lyrics sisters brothers' will return Sunday Bloody Sunday, One and Instant Karma.
