U2 are to go on line, at last. Speaking to
ShowBiz Ireland recently Paul McGuiness,
U2's manager confirmed www.U2.com is soon to
become a reality for their new album. "We now want
to go on-line with U2.com and it's just something
we haven't got around to yet. Well, at least until
band's new venture will be a site to behold the Rock
superstars. Speaking this week U2 member The Edge
revealed the band didn't bother with their own site
until now because their fans had beaten them to it.
He said "There was so much high-quality information
on the internet that we didn't feel there was any
need for us to add to that unless we could do something
different. But now we feel we're in a position where
we can fund a site we believe will be significantly
different to the stuff that's out there already."
The Edge insisted the group would not try to shut
down rival U2 sites but incorporate them into their
official one. "We're hoping to make connections to
the great sites that have sprung up over the years
that are to do with U2" he said "There are so many
of them and they are put together by U2 fans mostly.
We're interested in the ones that are put together
by the enthusiasts and there are a lot of those. I
don't think we serve U2 or U2 fans by trying to eliminate
the other sites." He said. "Variety is a big part
of it and there's room for all kinds of things dedicated
to the band from the bizarre to the ridiculous to
the ones we're trying to put together."
Edge said that U2 always had an interest in the Internet
and new technology and have been part owners of a
software company since the early 90's. The business
has just launched new advanced Internet technology
called Burst Web and is showcasing it with
a Webcast of U2's Popmart concert from Mexico
city for the next three weeks.
stunning concert can be seen at www.u2.burst.com.
While the new U2 web-site is expected to come online
by September, the band members are concentrating on
completing their latest album.
edge described the work in progress as "a band-centred
record". He said "I think it's gonna be a record people
play a lot. I think its material at its very core,
it's really about the four members of the band playing
together so it's going to work very well live."
