Northern Exposure

U2 are set to perform at what’s being billed as the biggest outdoor music event ever to take place in Belfast. “Music Alive,” a free, festival-style concert organized by the BBC, is scheduled for May 2004 on the grounds of City Hall.

According to a report in Sunday Life, the concert will be broadcast live across the world and include performances by The Corrs and Rod Stewart, among other artists.

  1. I doubt it. For the last ten years, countless time I have been heared about U2 headlining these free
    concerts. All trying to be like Live Aid. I have yet to see anyone of them actually take place. Well maybe NetAid, but that was just Bono doing a crap version of One by himself, not worth sitting thru all the other bad acts.

  3. Oh yeah, the Tibetan freedom concert. It was such a memorable performance I totally forgot about it 🙂

  5. It would appear that U2 has reached the “overexposure point” where people no longer hope news tied to U2 is true, rather they say “prove it/I’ll believe it when I see it”

    methinks it’s time to for the boys (b-man in particular) to away for a year & half & dream it all up again.

  7. Look at the link. It talks about U2 playing in Dublin and being filmed for a live link up. This is more realistic, U2 would Never Never be on a list below Rod Stewart. Rod Who I hear you say!!! New Album will be out and tour will have begun.

  9. performing with Rod Stewart is not half as bad as a duet with J-LO!! If that duet comes out I will seriously consider ending my 20 year infatuation with U2. Bono performing live with Celine Dion almost did it.

  11. I wish I could just “decide” not to like a band anymore. But their songs will always mean the world to me.

  13. Argh… Shut up about the J-Lo thing already… I am so flipping tired of hearing aboutit. And for the millionth time, the Celine Dion thing was an April Fool’s joke. It never actually happened. I don’t understand… if you’re so pissed off with what U2 is doing, then why don’t you just stop listening and stop posting here? I’ve heard of criticism, but some people never stop complaining… does a duet with J-Lo somehow diminish the meaning of songs like “Pride” or “Where The Streets Have No Name”? The J-Lo thing is for charity, and I have a really sneaking suspicion that it won’t effect their new album in the slightest either… get over it!

    Sorry for my mini-rant, but this kind of stuff annoys me. People making comments when they’re not actually informed.

  15. Well I’m agreeing completely with DudeLove 721 on his little rant. As far as the Dublin concert goes, if they were going to do a free concert why wouldn’t be in their home town?

  17. I live in Belfast, and the CityHall is th worst place to hold a concert. There is no space. If it was true, the location is enough to spoil it. Also, the Sunday Life in Northern Ireland is full of complete lies.

  21. i agree with the 1st comment. it was a crap version of ‘one’ in netaid. bono’s voice was cracked, and i’d rather hear bush says ‘…weapon of mass destruction…’, which is never been found in iraq and not been used in this war, and which i hate to hear from yr great president’s mouth but you american people are crazy about. however, bono’s voice is so great right now, his singing in oscar, never been better.

  23. I heard that ther’ll be a free gig over in Belgium, with U2 co-headlining Eddy Wally. Marina, Marina, Marina…

  25. Correction, should have been: Cherie, cherie, dans mij mij de tango d’amore…
    (by the legendary E.Wally). Now that would be a stunning duet for Bono.Soon at the Werchter festival.

  27. U2 is only overexposed in the minds of the fans who look up U2-related news daily, not the general population. It’s been a pretty quiet time, otherwise.

  31. Yes, that is how we Dutch do things: we shut the door on discussions we don’t like and then we start a war.
