U2 perform "Desire" in Las Vegas at the iHeartRadio Music Festival (9/23/16)


Top U2 News Stories

A FIRM owned by the members of U2 last year recorded profits of over €3.7m as it reaped the dividends of the band's blockbusting world tour and new music.

Independent.ie

New accounts filed by U2 Ltd show that the firm recorded the profits after sustaining a loss of €1m in 2014 - a positive swing of €4.7m.

The buoyancy of the firm's business is underlined, with its cash pile more than doubling during the year - going from €2.86m to €6.89m.

Last year, U2 grossed $152.2m in box office receipts as more than 1.28 million fans across the globe paid to see the band perform. Box office receipts are split between artist, promoter and venue owner.

The average gross from each U2 gig was $6.92m - easily the most lucrative average gross out of any of the performers touring last year. The band played 76 dates in 22 cities.

Remarks:

U2 perform at the Dreamfest conference right outside San Francisco (part of Salesforce's annual charity benefit for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital). The performance is held outdoors and uses U2's old stage setup from 2006's Vertigo stadium legs (only used once in the U.S. at the final show in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 9, 2006). The band rehearsed twice prior to the show, including the night before. A rare full band version of "California (There Is No End to Love)" is performed for only the 7th time in its entirety. U2 played a portion of "Zooropa" right after "Beautiful Day" and dedicated "Every Breaking Wave" to Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, who died 5 years ago to the day. The biggest moment came when U2 went after GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in a searing version of "Bullet the Blue Sky". In specially looped videos of Donald Trump, Bono attacks him for trying to hijack the American Dream as a self-serving and destructive business man. This mockery by Bono resembles his "conversation" with George H. W. Bush as "MacPhisto" on U2's ZooTV Tour. Right after "One", U2's scheduled encore was nixed because Bono spoke about charity involving the Red campaign. Much like the Innocence + Experience Tour, U2 performed a similar encore of songs until the final encore of "40". That song ("40") was played in celebration of U2's recent 40th anniversary of being together as a band. Bono said: "It feels kind of like a 40th birthday song".
