An “official” U2 book entitled “Show”, detailing the workings of live touring with U2 is currently in production. The writer, Diana Scrimgeour, is a friend of show director Willie Williams and video artist Cathy Owens. Amazon.de are already listing the book, with the following synopsis: “The book is designed by the band’s designers and the photographs will be hand picked from their archive put together over 20 years. There will be a commentary by Diana Scimgeour, U2’s official photographer.”
update: U2tour.de has details from the author herself. The full title will be “U2 Show”, the release date for the large format, hardback publication is set for September 16 2004.
“U2 Show” will be based on interviews with people who have worked with the band over the years, in the studio and on tour. Most photography will come from U2’s archives, a lot of which has never been published before.
