U2 KROQ Show

Not sure where this belongs, and I'm trying to remain relatively free from spoilers so I haven't ventured into any threads, so here it goes.

KROQ is announcing a secret show tomorrow. It's all but confirmed to be U2 based on the promo. Apparently only way to get in is to win, which sucks as I never win radio contests. It's likely to be at the Roxy, Troubadour or Whiskey based on previous shows they've done.

Just a heads up for LA people.

U2 is playing in SJ tomorrow and Tuesday. Not sure what time this secret show is supposed to take place. But if it's in the evening, it won't be U2.

Perhaps it could be Green Day. They are doing a secret show in Berkeley tonight.

The show isn't happening on Monday, it's being announced on Monday. The promo they played on the radio was very clearly U2 music, tiny snippets of U2 music.

Oops, sorry, read that as the secret show would be happening tomorrow, not as it being announced tomorrow.

They promised KROQ they'd play for them when the album was released. They were supposed to headline KROQ's winter festival at the Forum, but obviously that was cancelled. Seems like this is just a matter of making good on their promise, and a little promotion never hurt anybody.

They have plenty of days off around the LA dates, so any number of them could be the show date. Hope this happens! I won't be able to go, but it's cool to do things for fans like this occasionally. Remind people U2 are still human beings.

Plus if they play The Roxy they can stack 4/5s of it with insiders/ industry types that don't want to put up with the shit at these area shows.

Most of the tickets are given away by call in contests. You need to listen daily and be the right number caller. There may also be a U2.com contest, but those are normally geographically restricted.

Any chance the show would be broadcast on KROQ?

If anyone wins and needs a +1, I'll trade a Redzone for Denver/Chicago or Boston for that spot
