South America Coming Up

15 Mar 201187
Next up for U2360° Chile, Argentina and Brazil as the band return to South America for the first time in five years.

Edge and Bono have been speaking to Chilean TV ahead of the opening night in the country next week. A show 'is not like going to the office for us, it's either going to be a wedding or a funeral...'

And to Argentinian TV: 'A U2 show is a carnival, it's a revival, it's a political rally, it's a rave, it's a rock'n'roll show...'

It was the Vertigo Tour in 2006 when the band were last in South America and in Buenos Aires that the groundbreaking live set U23D was shot.

Last time the band were in Chile, then President-elect, Michelle Bachelet, the country's first woman leader, was backstage at the Estadio Nacional to present Amnesty International's 'Ambassadors of Conscience' award to the band and Paul McGuinness.

In Brazil Edge, Larry and Bono showed up for Carnival in Salvador and City of Blinding Lights was in the set list.

It's always special to visit South America. Are you coming to the shows? Tell us what you're looking forward to.

2 shows in Sao Paulo
We'll be going from Maine to Brazil for the first two shows in Sao Paulo. Ideal climate in Brazil compared to the northern US should make this vacation one to remember, plus seeing u2 twice makes it all that one could ask for. Can't wait to get there, three weeks away from today. Life is good, eh?
Not like going to the office
Thank you so much for these amazing interviews! When Bono and The Edge speak in public they are always such sincere, kind, humorous and polite gentlemen. I love listening to all their incredible explanations about the 360 stage, the beautiful chemistry between the bandmembers, the involvement in social activism and the uniqueness of U2 including the references to fine arts. Bono;s way to develop the concept of the Claw with such simple things like forks proves his great creativity. This innovative stage truly allows fans to feel close to the band and it makes a huge place shrink. When I hear Bono talk about the "open-heart surgery to sing and write those songs" I am deeply moved by his inner need to put his whole emotion, passion, soul and love in the music. His absolute dedication to those songs creates a sort of intensity and magic that changes the atmosphere in every venue. The music of U2 is not just about virtuosic musicianship and technical abilities, because the bottom line of all songs is love and humanity. Yes, attending a U2 concert is not like going to the office!
GO AHEAD Open up your hearts...
...'cause I'm almost an expert at mending. It's all in being tactile--though a little chocolate incentive never hurts. Hope you all enjoy a wonderful stay in this area of the world and wish you more smiles than you can handle.
looking forward ...
Brazil can barely wait for it!! COUNTDOWN ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gonna see ALL THE SHOWS in South America
God must love me very much! I´m going to see all the shows in South America. I´m brazilian and I will go to Santiago, Chile, tomorrow afternoon. The after the show I´m going to Argentina see the three gigs and come back do Sao Paulo... to the line. Last time I spent 7 days in line to see then! This time I´m going to line wednesday. Well, me story is a little big longer. To do this, to see U2's tour in South America, I had to quit my job. Can you believe it? Niether can I, but I did it! Last two U2's shows (in 2006, Sao Paulo) were the best days of my life, so I had to feel this once more in my life. As some says, there things that money just can't buy. Feeling that ice cold inside you is one of them. Anyway, hope everybody in South America enjoy U2 the same way I do, 'cause the only greatest happiness you can find is in Jesus! If anyone wants to see photos or something, look for Guilherme Baida on facebook. God bless you all!
Can't wait any longer....!!!
