Irish band October 30, 2021

Thought this was entertaining, and far from inaccurate too. An overview from El País of a certain Irish group and their career across the decades.

The unkindest cut?

U2′s latest release is We Are The People, the official theme song of the UEFA European Football Championship performed by Bono and The Edge together with dance music DJ and producer Martin Garrix. The song is so cheesy it’s beyond parody. If at the turn of the millennium Coldplay were hailed as the contender to take U2′s throne, here the theory that U2 are their own tribute band has been confirmed.

Ouch.

Speaking of U2 tribute bands, we’ve tickets to see Zooropa performing next month for the 30th anniversary of Achtung Baby. We saw them do a set in the Church on Mary St pre COVID and it was a great night out.

The question being when did U2 really start phoning it in? All That You Can’t Leave Behind was somewhat of a musical revival after Pop, but that was in 2000, and after that, there’s nothing terribly memorable (1,2,3, 14!).

The rot for me set in a lot earlier than that!
