RealNetworks and Tiscali to webcast live, free concert

Irish," on Wednesday, October 10, at 9 p.m. (EST).

Tour. The band has already performed more than 100
shows to more than two million fans around the globe
this year. The live webcast is available to fans worldwide
free of charge.

"In a time when the entire world has been saddened by
the recent events in New York City and Washington, DC,
U2, RealNetworks and Tiscali all felt that offering U2's
concert free to the public was the right thing to do," stated
Erik Flannigan, vice president ofMusic Services for
RealNetworks. "At the same time, by offering exclusive
aspects of the concert--such as the 360-degree spin cam,
back-stage interviews and on-demand broadband
feeds--to our established 400,000 GoldPass subscribers,
we are laying the groundwork for the great and exclusive
content that RealOne members will be able to expect,
when our RealOne Service is launched to the public later
this fall... and GoldPass members are transitioned to
RealOne members."

On the night of the webcast, RealNetworks will bring the
concert to U.S. fans online via and European listeners will be able to access

of" footage of the concert, and backstage interviews with
the band and crew.
