Remember those classic albums by some of the biggest names in rock? Timeless albums such as Exile on Main Street (Rolling Stones), The Joshua Tree (U2), Full Moon Fever (Tom Petty), and plenty more have stuck in our heads as quintessential albums from our favorite artists.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know I’m being as predictable as a bad cop drama, but I thought today would be perfect to take us on a journey to remind ourselves and explore the great music that’s from Ireland. For a country with only 32,500 square miles, it’s wild so much creativity has come from one area. So tonight while you’re eating corned beef and cabbage and drinking a Guinness (or a Harp) flick on some of these bands and enhance your St. Paddy’s Day a couple of notches.
What better way to wrap up your St. Patrick’s weekend celebration than with an XRT Sunday Night Concert Special starring U2?
The very Joshua tree made famous by U2 with the band’s album of the same name has been damaged, presumably by an overzealous fan.
The controversy over U2’s Songs Of Innocence release has been well documented over the past few months. While many people had access to the album, it remained to be seen whether or not U2’s method of release would be successful.
U2 recently released the video for “Every Breaking Wave” directed by Belfast native Aoife McArdle and is inspired by her short film of the same name.
When purchasing tickets to see bands live in concert, an important deciding factor is often based on who the opening act will be. If you find that you are almost as excited about the opening act as you are for the headliner, chances are you won’t hesitate when it comes to throwing down the money for some tickets.
The Grammys are on CBS this Sunday and although it’s primarily an award ceremony, the show has featured some amazing performances over the years.
A U2 Friday Feature, XRT Style. Crank up your radio and tune in beginning with the XRT Morning Show.
After quickly selling out their first two shows and adding another two dates, U2 have announced that they’ll be sticking around Chicago for a little bit longer.
