Multi-platinum selling Irish rockers U2 have been dominating the music scene since 1980, establishing themselves as one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Their powerful, post-punk driven songs, which tend to shed light upon pressing political and religious issues, have echoed throughout sold-out arenas across the world. Though the band had been making waves since the early 80s, it wasn’t until their 1987 release The Joshua Tree that the band reached superstar status. The album, which was regarded as a masterpiece, boasts iconic songs “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” “With or Without You,” and “In God’s Country” and has sold 25 million albums worldwide. Later releases like Achtung Baby and How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” have also received praise and critical acclaim. Marketing moguls, the band made headlines in 2014 with the largest album release of all time when they made their Songs of Innocence available to 500 million Apple users at no cost.
Songs of Experience is projected for release later this year. Be sure to catch the band on their 30-year anniversary Joshua Tree tour alongside Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
