Wasn't that already done by Billy Joel?? I think it's supposed to be closed by the time they tour if it isn't already.

McGuinness loves it as it's a paid service and U2 loves it because it gets music out to all their fans.

Yeah this seems to be a trend, XM is having Coldplay month starting July 15th.

Oh, sorry, I'm just not tht into sports and I live in Florida so neither place has any connection for me. I suppose it's possible that they could do something then as a promo appearance like the lead ups to the last two releases and it is New York so I quess you can't rule it out.

Sirius Satellite Radio is probably a US only service, never heard of it here.

It's going to be old school & old media promotion:
Metal lunch boxes
Toys in cereal boxes
Surprises in Cracker Jack
First 1,000 to enter Yankee Stadium get a Bono bobblehead.

That sort of stuff.

Perhaps they should advertise on TV
Or put up moving billboards in New York City/Tokyo
Or drive in a limo shouting out in a megaphone that the album is coming out soon.
Maybe even buy an airship and fly it over cities and stadiums with flashy lights.
How about bungee jumping off the Empire State Building/Eiffel Tower etc.

There is a lot of creative things they can do

- album: Guitar Hero
- live: Point Depot then O2

As long as the album's great, which hasn't happened in over a decade, I don't mind them appearing on SNL and all those shows. I'd prefer if Bono acted more real though; enough with the antics and shoving shoes in the camera, though, I guess, he always did that kind of stuff. He does move differently, though, since the new millennium, more like a rapper or something. The swagger has changed.
