Edge Expects New U2 Album to Sell At Least 20 Units

Last week U2log asked our friend Derek McAllister to check in on the “In the Time of Shaking” exhibition opening at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, where Edge introduced Yoko Ono to a gallery filled with socialites and media. Asked if he was happy with the new album to date, Edge told Derek, “It’s not just the finished article. But so far I think we will sell over 20 units of the album because the four of us are happy, the team in happy, the manager is happy, and some of our kids seem happy with the tunes on the new album.”

Bono Opens Art Exhibition

Last night in Dublin, Bono opened a new exhibition of Italian artist Francesco Clemente’s work at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Bono agreed to open the exhibition because he is a major fan of Clemente’s work, possessing several of the artist’s paintings in his home.

Attending the event were friends Gavin Friday, Guggi, and Paul McGuinness. Photos at ShowBiz Ireland and Recirca.com.
