Hello Hello!!


March 31st, 2008

U2 signed with Live Nation @ 12:59 am

carobanano:
U2 just joined ranks with Madonna....Read more about the deal here: http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/arts/entertainment-livenation-u2.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

Anybody know what kind of impact this will have on fans?


P.S. And while I'm posting here, can I vent my frustration about not being anywhere near a movie theater that shows U23D? (You'd think there would be more love for South America, given that they filmed it here....) Anyone else in the same boat?

What is this live nation thing? I looked it up but I didn't understand why it's such a big deal...

Maybe there aren't many cinemas that can air 3d stuff around here...
But I just saw on TV an ad for that hannah montana 3d movie... Maybe the distribution companies are stupid... I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case here anyway...

So basically Live Nation is handling touring/merchandise/website stuff for U2. Who did that before? Universal?

The article said, "Several of the company's executives had managed U2's tours for more than 20 years." I would venture a guess and say a different group of people seperate from Universal (or Island) were brought in to handle touring, merch, etc., and it sounds as if they were/are affliated with Live Nation already. I have a feeling U2 would want to work with those people again, rather than have Universal step in and handle it. The Live Nation crew have the experience; Universal is trying to diversify to make more money now that CDs don't sell much anymore.

He was talking more about releasing records, which U2 is still doing with Universal.

I think this is a good thing, considering the massive FAIL that was the last tour's fan club/ticket sales debacle.
