My earliest favorite band of the 80s (started a bit in the late 70s) and Sting ("Dream of the Blue Turtles" tour) was my first concert when I was a junior in high school.. I was on the floor and somehow jumped and touched his hand... he's not into crowd contact and gave me a dirty look and backed up!
U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, their early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have maintained a sound built on melodic instrumentals, highlighted by The Edge's timbrally varied guitar sounds and Bono's expressive vocals. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal themes and sociopolitical concerns.
