There are secrets to the Elevation Tour that not many know. We won't
claim to be the first to know, we won't tell you how we know, but we
will let you know:
1. Ya' know those 'WooooHooooo's
that Bono sings during the opening song, Elevation, well believe
it or not but those very energetic, get the crowd going vibes
2. Been curious to know how many chest hairs poor Bono has
ripped out each night he lets the crowd grope him as he leans
into the crowd? None, and he doesn't feel a thing because he's
BULLET PROOF VEST
origins of U2.coma
I can see the conversation now, four
Irish dudes sitting around in the studio:
"Fuck! The album is late. Fuck! We bought a Lasertag company in
Germany where toy guns are illegal! Fuck! What about this stupid
Internet thing? We're the last band on earth without a
site!" Adam takes a bong hit and says "Don't worry mates, me bro will do it".
Thanks to our friend Toot for this eloquent

Smile you're on ZooTV! That's right folks, in this absolute waste of space, we are turning the TV cameras around and watching the folks at U2 HQ in Dublin, Ireland. Ever wondered if the folks over there read
Feedback? Well we've got the answers for you. After long nights in the depths of Internet hell we
tunneled into the very realm of U2Feedback and pulled out two days of links which one particular person, at U2 HQ, read. We'll keep that person's identity anonymous, but enjoy their reading

stealin' it back...
We all know of the U2 Lyrics Archive (and if you don't - shame on you!). It contains lyrics to all the U2 songs, including those that have never been published (in print). Even in the U2LA some songs that have been transcribed by ear still are lacking a few words or verses (such as
"Always"). We thought perhaps U2.com may have put up the 'official' lyrics to the song, but we were quick to notice that they just copied and pasted the transcription from the U2LA, complete with question marks "(???)" on the line that the transcriber doesn't know! Seems the folks over at u2.com are stealin' it back from the fans. A bit tacky, you decide.
(update) Thanks to Majid
for pointing out to us that U2.com has apparently been visiting
our lil' lair and have now changed their lyrics page.
|Willie's Diary from U2.com -- the HIDDEN
(updated) O.K. O.K.!!! So it wasn't that much of a secret :-)
Big Deal! Bet you still hadn't seen it. Our informant seemed to
have misplaced his eye balls and forgot to notice the menu. In
the off chance that you missed it too, keep reading:
That's right, here at U2WDD.org, we are committed to digging up
the buried treasure. We have recently unearthed old diary
entries from Willie Williams - some that may give you quite a
laugh. So you want to know how to find all this? Okay,
go to "Willie's Diary" of the Elevation Tour section on U2.com. If you go to "Who's Willie?" at the top right and click on "Previous Entry", you'll find the actual previous entry --
the last entry on the POPMart tour. Keep going back, and you'll find
every entry for Willie's Diary for POPMart (with a couple missing pictures, replaced with a dummy pic of the New York
POPMart). It goes all the way back to April 3rd, 1997. We actually don't know why it's there -- they might be planning on announcing
it later, or it could be an intentional Easter egg. If
you'd rather take the easy route and start directly from the
beginning, Click Here.

Sells Lemon for £33,000,000
It is well known that U2
barely broke even on their last endeavor, POPMart. In an effort
to recoup losses, giant olives and lemons have went on the
auction block. We have an inside report from someone
'inside the lemon' that the band sold the sparkly lemon for just
over £33m. One flaw in this little sale... the new owner is
peeved, "I thought it really did fly!" said the
unnamed purchaser in an email interview. He followed that by
saying, "If I would have known it didn't fly, I would have
bid on Sparky's spoon collection. I think it went for only a bit
more." We really are truly sorry to hear about such a
misunderstanding... but hey... the For Sale sign did say 'AS-IS:
Sometimes takes big rock stars hostage. Does not produce juice.
Seeds non-removable.' Did you believe this story? If
so, send hate mail to MacPhisto,
you've been duped.
