If people treat it like an academic conference, it shouldn't be. My fear is that it will turn into a PLEBA convention. I think there could be more serious criticism of U2's work, and it would be nice to see this conference as the first step in that direction, since a lot of bigger conferences will publish a volume of articles originally presented at the conference. The only critical book about U2 I've read so far was U2 & Philosophy, and as I said in the politest way possible in my review of it awhile back, all but about two articles of it was crap.

Just curious, but have you read "Race of Angels" by John Waters? If you haven't you should definitely check it out.

Yeah...i LOVE it there!!

they've got to correct their tour information though...on the tour, they state U2 recorded only 3 songs there...they actually recorded 5.

Don't worry though, I wasn't a douche about it Haha

I guess there were lots of threads about the old conference which is now a new conference with the same great spirit and lots of amazing papers planned with a wide array of presenters from all over the world.

The conference originally scheduled for last month in NYC has moved to NC this coming October. Advantages over the earlier version: cheaper conference to attend, cheaper hotel rooms, and a U2 show in the area the same weekend.

Read all about the new conference here:

There is nothing any more wrong with this conference about U2 than there was about the U2 events that used to be held in Canada every Fall ("Into the Heart" events) and the events that preceded the U2 exhibit in 2003 at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!


This will be three days of films about U2, panel discussions about U2, presentations by those at the top of the music industry who have known U2 through the years of their music career (Anthony de Curtis & Jim Henke), their young days in Dublin (Neil McCormick) and through Bono's activism (Agnes Nyamayarwo).



There will be an exhibit hall with vendors of different non-profits associated with U2 and vendors with merchandise to sell about U2.


There might even be a surprise or two at the Conference.



So, for the prices being considered now for the tix to get in & the influential people in
U2's lives that you get to meet, I think that the U2 Conference is WELL WORTH YOUR TIME.
