Move over Lennon, here comes U2.

U2 exhibit next feature on rock hall's list

The Associated Press
9/17/02 4:17 PM

CLEVELAND (AP) -- John Lennon is a tough act to follow, but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is counting on U2 to come through.

The Irish rock band will be the subject of a featured exhibit to open in January or February, one month after the rock hall's John Lennon exhibit closes in December, ending a 26-month run, chief curator Jim Henke said.

Henke said it's uncertain whether U2 singer Bono or other band members will be on hand for start of the exhibit. But he said there will be plenty for U2 fans to see.

"We have about 25 pieces of clothing, going back to outfits from the Red Rocks show (in 1983) to costumes from their most recent tours," Henke said. "We have some instruments, too, and we're hoping to get some of Bono's handwritten lyrics."

But the giant lemon -- a prop from U2's "Popmart" roadshow -- won't be part of the exhibit.

"It's too big," Henke said.

Four outlandishly decorated automobiles from U2's "Zoo TV" tour have been on display in the museum lobby since the rock hall opened in 1995.

Band members expressed interest in lending memorabilia during a visit to the rock hall last year, when they performed at Gund Arena. U2 will be eligible for induction in 2004.
