The Most Photographic Village Ever

We have given our image discussion group at a new name — The Village — and a new reason to join it: we’ve been adding a lot of photos to the pool for members’ review.

The Village is not only an archive of our and your U2 images, but also a place to discuss them. At The Village, you can find many of the photos that we do not publish with our event reports because of space issues. (At most events, we generally capture more than 200 photos, but publish less than a dozen with the reports.) Our photographer extraordinaire Ruth Barohn has recently added unpublished photos from the Brooklyn show and the K-Rock How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb listening party, contributing editor ~E has added her impressive collection of photos from the PopMart tour, and the other editors have uploaded many photos from their personal collections. Current members of The Village are doing their bit too and sharing their photos.

If you have a particularly spectacular photo of U2 that you would like to share with the U2 fan community or you want to see spectacular photos, register for a free account at and join The Village.

Not yet convinced you should join The Village? Below is just a sample of the photos you can see and discuss when you join.

Permanent Hiatus

Thank you for visiting today and your patronage over the last decade. The time has come for us to call it a day. So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye and thank you again.

PS, we may not be blogging here, but we're still somewhat active on Twitter and daily links should still appear on this page.

  • Column: off the record..., vol. 14-614 April 13, 2014
    Dear Diary, Just as people are debating U2’s relevancy in today’s music scene, I have been struggling with a similar issue as a fan. I’ve been around this block as a fan for a quarter-century now. I’ve gone through the typical motions of fandom: buying everything I could with any disposable income I had; […]
  • Like A Song: Grace April 9, 2014
    [Ed. note: This is the 84th in a series of personal essays by the @U2 staff about songs and/or albums that have had great meaning or impact in our lives.] Grace, she's got the walk I’ve always been ungraceful. Ballet lessons? After clomping around a dance floor at age 5, I abandoned attempts to be a swan-abee and took up piano instead. High heels?
  • Achtoon Baby: Li'l U2 in ... Bono Needs an Intervention April 9, 2014
    Prince? Bruce Springsteen? David Bowie (not pictured)? How and why are those three music legends getting featured here? Well, if you heard the recent gossip about Bono having a case of writer's block (see here), that should serve as your entry clue. @U2's Kelly Eddington trots out some of rock's royalty to help Bono through his struggles in th […]

  • Column: off the record..., vol. 14-613 April 6, 2014
    I learned something new last week. Well, I learn a lot of new things every week, but here's one from last week that's specifically relevant to this column: It's really hard to write one of those personality quizzes that are so popular now! […]
