Volvo Ocean Race: U2 heads and Bono's brother visit Green Dragon in Alicante
Friday, 10 October 2008




The Green Dragon boat in the Volvo Ocean Race Village, Alicante had a surprise visit from Bono’s brother, Norman Hewson yesterday. Norman, an avid sailor had travelled from Dublin to support the Green Dragon team, joining him onboard were the “U2 heads”.

The “U2 heads” which were used during the U2 Zooropa world tour are part of Tourism Ireland’s promotion of Ireland during the Volvo Ocean Race. Tourism Ireland as a partner sponsor for the Green Dragon has planned a major international marketing programme, to fully capitalise on the tourism business potential emanating from the Galway stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race and will invest significantly in exploiting global TV and media interest in the event.

The nine month event attracts huge publicity around the world and is an ideal opportunity to showcase Galway, the West of Ireland, watersports in Ireland, and more generally the many attractions that the island of Ireland has to offer as a holiday destination. The Volvo Ocean Race 2005-06 drew a massive global television audience of 1.8 billion viewers and the organisers are confident that this audience will grow further in 2008-2009.

The race commences this Saturday 11 October and will sail to Capetown, Kochi, Singapore, Qingdao, Rio de Janeiro and Boston before arriving in Galway on 23 May for a two week festival. The boats and their crew will have endured 8 months at sea and over 35,000 nautical miles in temperatures ranging from -5 to +50 degrees Celsius in a cramped carbon fibre boat. The sailors will have put themselves under the same level of mental and physical duress as a soldier on the front line of a war zone – at times 2,500 miles from the nearest landfall, contending with mountainous seas, 70 knot winds, and the constant pounding of the waves.

Galway will be well prepared and waiting for their arrival, willing to offer a Céad Mìe Fáilte to this major international sporting event. A three-acre village will be developed for the event which will be the biggest sporting event in Ireland since the Ryder Cup, with up to 140,000 visitors expected for the fleet arrival, in-port racing and two-week festival of culture and ‘craic’. It is estimated that it will generate €43 million for the local economy. Fáilte Ireland on behalf of the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism are the principal sponsors of the Galway stopover and supported the bid for The Volvo Ocean Race to come to Galway.

Angelina Jolie, Bono and Nelson Mandela feature in Vogue-style Bible
Angelina Jolie features in a new version of the Bible.

By Anita Singh, Showbusiness Editor
Last Updated: 7:05PM BST 09 Oct 2008

Dag Soderberg has decided to repackage the bible in the style of Vogue The glossy coffee table tome, titled Bible Illuminated: The Book, is a bold attempt to capture the attention of modern readers.

Instead of following the usual Bible format - lots of words but somewhat lacking in celebrity portraits - Swedish ad man Dag Soderberg has decided to repackage it in the style of Vogue.

Passages are written out in a magazine-style format and accompanied by striking images. Jolie's picture is included alongside Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and U2 frontman Bono, to illustrate the importance of doing good deeds. They were selected after the publishers asked the Swedish public which famous figures in modern times represented goodness and compassion.

Jolie is a UN Goodwill Ambassador and noted humanitarian, donating millions of dollars to the poor through the charitable foundation that she set up with partner Brad Pitt.

Other images include a shirtless male model striding through the waves and a black-and-white close-up of a couple about to kiss.

The New Testament version of the book is published in the US at the end of this month and there are plans for a UK release in the coming months.

According to its publishers, when The Book was released in Sweden it accounted for a 50 per cent rise in the country's Bible sales for 2007. It was initially sold in fashion boutiques, art galleries and design stores before reaching bookshops.

Soderberg insists he is not particularly religious, explaining that his motivation is to make the Bible more accessible.

"Most people have issues with the Bible. They have never gotten into it. They don't find it accessible. But it's our history, our heritage. And for most of us, we relate to it more than we think. Religious or not, it shapes much of our moral codes," he said.

His goal is "to make a version of the Bible that people want to pick up, instead of hide away or just place on a bookshelf."

U2's Bono and The Edge writing music for Spider-Man: The Musical
$40 million production to be Broadway's biggest

Joe Bosso, Fri 10 Oct, 1:56 pm BST


U2 are caught in Spidey's web


You'd think that Bono and The Edge, still finishing U2's new album, No Line On The Horizon, would have little time for outside projects. But the two are writing the score for the upcoming Broadway production of Spiderman: The Musical.

Although the lavish production, said to feature state-of-the-art lighting and sets, isn't due to open till sometime next year, it's already making history of sorts.

No line on the budget
At a reported cost of $40 million, the Spider-Man musical will be the most expensive in Broadway history - that's a weekly running tab of close to $1 millon. It is estimated that the show will have to run succesfully - now, get this - for 8,000 years to break even. (Uh, yeah, that'll happen.)

The show is being helmed by The Lion King's director Julie Taymor, no stranger to cost overruns and clashes with producers. A source says, "She doesn't care what it costs. Does not care at all. Her attitude is, it's for the art, and you don't question artists."

Okay, then. Well, at least the music should be good.This isn't the first comic book collabo for U2: They contributed Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me to the Batman Forever soundtrack.

In the meantime, U2 are still pounding away on No Line On The Horizon, which will cost considerably less than $40 million. And won't take nearly as long to break even
