We're finally back and in this episode we're celebrating POP's 25th anniversary. If U2 won't do it, we will. Karen from Connecticut is joining us. Karen is a longtime U2 fan and shares some great stories, including the story of the day she saw U2 perform and hold a press conference at K-Mart in 1997. We also look back on 2021 and ahead to the upcoming years; sharing the latest on U2's upcoming albums, Bono's book, the Netflix series and much more.
Looking forward to listening to this podcast this weekend. Thanks Remy
what they said
"We had to build that stage in six minutes. I was on radio-controlled earphones and microphone. One error and you're off air. It was terrifying but all you can see is my usual expression when I'm terrified - a big smirk. But it was a great moment. That whole tour, we kind of fell in love with America again and they fell in love with us."
- Bono on playing the Superbowl half-time show in 2011
