U2 New Album New Concert Tour 2014

U2 Concert Tour 2014

U2 Concert

After 12 albums and millions of fans, Irish rock band U2 remains to be a favorite among rock, alternative rock, and post-punk music fans. Band members The Edge (keyboards, guitar,and vocals), Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion), Bono (vocals and guitar), and Adam Clayton (bass guitar) remain to be popular figures among adoring fans all over the world. Since the band’s formation in 1976, U2 has been going strong and, if the rumors and speculations were true, they would even be releasing their 14th album next year.

U2’s 13th Album

This band from Dublin, Ireland is among the all-time best-selling music artists, having sold a whopping over 150 million records worldwide and having won 22 Grammy Awards, earning them a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With U2’s popularity and well-deserved fame, fans worldwide are all eager for another album (the last one, “No Line on the Horizon”, was released back in 2009 and topped The Billboard 200) and speculations of a new release have sparked excited chatter among fans and critics alike.

According to Billboard, U2 is getting ready for their 13th album, to be released, tentatively, on April 2014. To up the excitement, the big announcement is rumored to be made in a Super Bowl commercial. Nothing like Super Bowl to get everyone talking. After all, advertising time during an American Football much would cost around $3.8million dollars for half-a-minute of airtime. As far as everyone waiting for a new U2 album is concerned, this expense explains why the band members are looking for a brand partner to announce their latest album with.

More Rumors

After the chart-topping “No Line on the Horizon”, U2 is rumored to be preparing for a follow-up with no other than Coldplay’s Chris Martin. (Chris Martin was spotted exiting the band’s New York recording studio earlier this year. To follow a fan’s logic: Aside from a collaboration, what is there to think?)Coldplay will also be releasing a new album in may.
Behind the Big Announcement

Producer Danger Mouse (yes, the same person who worked with Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells and 2004 Jay-Z/Beatles mash-up) has been helming the set. Recording is purportedly being done at New York’s Electric Lady Studios, with the band having been sighted there in May. Danger Mouse has been working with U2 since 2010 and the expectations are really high.

Reports also claim that Madonna manager Guy Oseary has been driving the brand partnerships for U2’s new album and has been reaching out to potential sponsors. Oseary has not made any comment to inquiries so far but everyone is hyped, especially amid reports that Live Nation is negotiating a deal in an attempt to buy the management companies behind U2 and Madonna.

The album is expected to be finished by the end of the year and will be a merge of all the bands previous musical styles, as hinted by bassist Adam in an interview with Irish radio station 98FM.

In the meantime, U2 has a 10-inch single to be released for Record Store Day “Back to Black Friday” which will feature “Breathe” and “Ordinary Love” from “No Line on the Horizon”.

U2 2014 Concert Tour

U2 is going to be going on a World Wide Concert Tour starting in 2014 and speculation is that although they could easily fill arenas that hold over 100,000 such as the Rose Bowl in Pasadena where they have sold out before they will be playing multiple nights at venues such as the Los Angeles U2 played the Staples Center, Untied Center in Chicago and Madison Square Garden in New York. As with the trend of alot of acts now a days the Irish Rockers could offer multiple packages for their fans.

How To Get U2 Tickets at Face Value

While everyone knows that U2 Tickets as well as most tickets go on sale through ticketmaster, livenation or AXIS but did you know that one of the best ways for your chance to get U2 Tickets at face value is from the band itself? Yes the official U2 website U2.com offers news, videos, merchandise and more but it also offers exclusive deals as well as presale information on U2′s 2014 concert tour. They can have special on sales of tickets, vip tickets and meet and greet tickets for their fan club members and while yes we will stock tickets for the U2 Concert in Los Angeles and all other cities the ability to get tickets at face value from the band is a great first option. Usually U2 Fan Club concert tickets are pick up at will call the night of their concert so make sure you read all the information because it can get tricky if your are buying U2 Tickets for a friend or family member and want to try and switch out the name for the will call. If you are getting U2 Vip Tickets or U2 Meet and Greet Tickets its the same thing you will have to pick up the tickets at will call with your guest and walk straight into the concert from the holding area so make sure that you are the one who is going in. I have seen numerous people get to a concert with their friends or family only to run into major problems because they were just trying to pick up the tickets and not go themselves.

U2 Tickets Meet and Greet

Although U2 hasnt done a meet and greet tickets package before but it seems now this is where the real money is for acts. Justin Bieber, Lady GAGA, Katy Perry and even Depeche Mode all offered Meet and Greet Tickets for their concerts which usually include a photo op with the band, special merchandise, seats right next to the stage and other hospitality areas away from the normal fans as well as an extremly high face value. Lady GAGA’s meet and greet package is over $3,000 per ticket face value. U2 Meet and Greet tickets could conceivably start at over $5000 per ticket.

U2 VIP Tickets

U2 VIP TICKETS

VIP Tickets

Depending on the bands concert stage set up U2 VIP Tickets seems the most likely to happen. In previous tours they have had a pit in front of the stage set up or a long catwalk extending deep into the crowd. This would allow them to offer more U2 VIP Tickets at a higher face value. If they do a pit set up the VIP Tickets could include a enclosed area around the stage, special U2 tickets, program and maybe some merchandise. U2 VIP Tickets would have a much lower face value then Meet and Greet tickets and could run anywhere from $175 a ticket on up to $1500 a ticket face value.

U2 2014

U2 Fans no matter what will have a lot to look forward to in 2014 new songs released, new album and yes a 2014 U2 Concert Tour! By:Chris Michaels

5 Highest Grossing Concert Tours

Here are the top five touring acts of 2010. While they are all big names, you may be a bit surprised at some of the names on it.

5. The Black Eyed Peas- $81.6 million
It seems that everything that the Black Eyed Peas touches in recent years has turned to gold. Or Platinum, whatever. The Black Eyed Peas World Tour in 2010 sold out all 82 dates that they had. And everyone had a “Goodnight” (oooh hooo).

4. Lady Gaga- $116.2 million
It can be argued that Gaga is the biggest star in the muscle universe today. Her 2010 Fame Monster World Tour (which is actually still going on as we speak) sold out 101 of 122 shows last year. Of course, a lot of the $116 million that she received when back into production costs (Gaga is never understated), she’s still doing pretty good for herself.

3. AC/DC- $122.6 million
One of the most iconic hard rock bands of the last half centuries, AC/DC’s 2010 stadium dates found the band playing to over 1.15 million people in 28 shows. With a number “Black Ice” hitting number one recently, it can be argued that AC/DC is as popular, if not popular, then it as ever been.

2. U2- $131.5 million
To be honest, the only reason why U2 isn’t number one on this list is because they had to cancel a full North American tour thanks to Bono’s back issues. In fact, U2 was able to make all their money with only 22 dates (and 22 sell outs). Expect the band to take up the top spot in 2011 with their rescheduled North American tour.

1. Bon Jovi- $146.5 million
While they may not be the flashiest or the most beloved band in rock, Bon Jovi is quite possibly the most consistent. Regardless of whether they release a new album or not, they hit the road almost every year. And their fans keeping buying tickets, with 69 sell outs in 69 dates. Though the band is going to take the next couple of years off, they will hit the road again.
