On the way to the venue, it hits you that you’re going to see one of the greatest bands of all-time. You enter the arena, find your seat, and anxiously wait. Then, when the Irish quartet takes the stage, the crowd roars so loud that you feel it in your gut.
Next, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers play the opening chord to the first of the many hits they’re going to perform that night. That’s when it occurs to you that life doesn’t get much better than being at a U2 concert.
U2 is responsible for the highest grossing, and sixth-highest grossing tours of all-time. In fact, they’ve had one of the highest grossing tours in each of the last four decades.
U2 was founded in 1976. They are comprised of lead vocalist Bono, lead guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton, and drummer Larry Mullen Jr.
The band’s magnum opus is Joshua Tree (1987). Other big albums they’ve released are Rattle and Hum (1988), Zooropa (1993), and How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004).
Some of U2’s biggest hits are “Pride (In the Name of Love),” “With or Without You,” “I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For,” “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “Mysterious Ways” “One,” “Beautiful Day,” and “City of Blinding Lights.”
