U2 are flogging their former offices down in the docklands; I passed by this week and took a few snaps (above) but when I looked closer I think they’ve left an Emmy Award….Possibly the 2011 Sports Emmy. Typical. Careless rock stars.
U2’s concert at the 3Arena included – during the song ‘Raised By Wolves‘ – a memorial to the victims of the Dublin-Monaghan bombings, an allegedly ‘false flag’ event involving the British Army and the Ulster Volunteer Force that killed 33 people.
The death toll was the greatest loss of life on a single day of the ‘Troubles’. No one has ever been charged with the bombings.

RTÉ2 is delighted to announce that it will broadcast the Irish premiere of U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE – Live In Paris on Sunday 29th November at 7.00pm on RTÉ2, the day after the band’s run of hometown shows comes to a close.
U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE – Live In Paris captures the Irish band’s groundbreaking tour when it reaches the French capital this month.
Speaking about the film Bill Malone, Channel Controller for RTÉ2 said: “RTÉ2 is all about supporting Irish talent, Irish creativity and Irish music so it’s only fitting that we’ll show the Irish premiere of this fantastic concert by Ireland’s greatest music act and the biggest band in the world, U2”
happened to be on the u2 website actually for a completely different reason but out of curiosity had a look at the tour dates…was surprised to see a Belfast date listed but on a refresh the date vanished…then this (above) showed 5 mins later seems this is probably their planned Belfast & Dublin dates…Point Depot too ugh…
Pay yer taxes ye globalist lizard poxbottles (except Adam).
The demolition of the iconic Windmill Lane studio took place yesterday and plans have been made to develop residential, office and retail units due to the site being purchased by Hibernia REIT in May of last year. Artists who recorded in the Windmill Lane studio include Van Morrisson, The Rolling Stones and Sinead O’Connor but the studios were best known for recordings carried out by U2, especially the Joshua Tree album
