love them, but they should release some stuff.. their last album is from 2003? 2004? can't remember..
they were touring in Brazil a couple years ago.. I went to 5 of 6.
spend my whole life thinking that I would never see them, so I had to enjoy it.
I even took the same flight with them... hahahhahaha. funny days.
Great band. I know them from the start with The Hurting which is a great debut album in 1983 but 1985 Songs from the Big Chair is a masterpiece. I went to see them on The Seeds of Love tour in 1990 in Rotterdam. Great concert. Maybe I will go to see them in Amsterdam or Antwerp next year.
"Larry was pretty much against it. He thought we were exploiting other people's misery for entertainment. Bono definitely felt that we were shining a light on something important."

did you know
"All Along the Watchtower" was recorded in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco in front of what many consider to be the ugliest sculpture in the city. Bono's spraypainted words required a formal apology from the band and were removed within days.
