U2 Answers Fan Questions On SiriusXM Town Hall
August 3, 2015 at 11:07 AM (PT)
U2 recently sat down with their fans for an intimate Q&A session as part of SIRIUSXM's TOWN HALL series at the satellite radio's NEW YORK studios during their just-completed eight-night stint at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
BONO, THE EDGE, ADAM CLAYTON and LARRY MULLEN JR. answered questions from SIRIUSXM listeners about their celebrated career, everything from the very early days of the band, revealing bassist CLAYTON was their first manager and THE EDGE’s mother their first roadie, to the future of music streaming and distribution to their most recent album "Songs Of Innocence" and their current “iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE TOUR 2015.”
“One of the world’s biggest bands came to SIRIUSXM and delivered to our listeners and some very lucky subscribers an once-in-a-lifetime chance to be just inches away from their music heroes and ask them questions. And, at the end, as a surprise, the band invited the SIRIUSXM TOWN HALL guests to attend their sold-out show at MSG on July 30 -- it was truly a memorable and special event -- sure to make for an outstanding broadcast,” said SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN.
