U2 knows the economy’s in the dumpster, so the Irish band is really working the U.S. promotions of its new CD “No Line On The Horizon.”
For starters, U2 launched a five-night band residency on the late night David Letterman show. The band’s new music is edgy, sharp — and it rocks. Forget about switching dials to catch the other late night music this week, you’ll want to check out and see what U2 has to offer.
Then, Bono announced that his band will be looking at ways to keep ticket prices reasonable for U2’s upcoming U.S. tour.
And it all comes home to Denver: Local radio station 99.5 — The Mountain — just announced that it will be offering three live broadcasts of U2 in three U.S. cities — on its Denver airwaves.
Monday, March 9 locals can tune in to hear U2 live from LA, Tuesday March 10, the Irish rockers will be live from Chicago, and Wednesday the band will be heard live from Boston.
All Boulder and Denver listeners have to do is tune in to 99.5 at 7 p.m. each night to hear the three unique broadcasts. The station can also be heard on-line.
No word on a Denver U2 show. Let’s hope this isn’t another band that’s passing on playing Colorado!
