U2 has signed a deal with Live Nation for them to help the band with promotion of concerts and merchandise. It will not affect the band leaving their current label Universal Music Group. This is the same company that pop music queen Madonna will be working for as soon as she leaves Warner Music Group.
Since the band’s last couple of albums “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” and “Atomic Bomb” didn’t sell very big, I can understand why U2 would go for this.
U2 has always been a favorite band of mine since I was a child and still love them today. “Atomic Bomb” was an ok record, I love “Can’t Leave Behind” way more.
I hope their next album will be a great one, they’re currently in the studio recording it.
