Description

Everything about the band U2 is huge. From their music, to their tours, to their influence on global popular culture and politics. In the US they are cultural icons as well as multimillion album selling pop stars. Underpinning their popularity is the passion for touring. For the last 20 years they have hardly been off the road. It is the thing they love to do best. And it is the tour which drives their creativity and reflects the direction of the band. From the modest Tick Tock Tour of 1980, through the Joshua Tree, and on to the videomedia extravaganza of ZooTV in the early 90s and Popmart in the late 90s then the more intimate Elevation tour of the last two years, it is the tours which have set their agenda. For the first time the band has agreed to allow a book on this vital part of their creative energy. The photographs will be hand picked from their archive put together over 25 years. There will be a commentary by Diana Scimgeour, U2's official photographer, and first-person accounts from the band and associates. U2: The Art of Touring will be the music publishing event of 2003.
