In conversation with... December

Every fan has their own special story, and we are happy to share these with you all. Today, we continue our series of conversations with the Scottish band December, a group who jumped into the U2 community's collective consciousness last year with the release of their charity single Alison Stewart. Since then they have teased the community about their forthcoming cover of A Sort of Homecoming, which is released today (and we have the video for it embedded below). To mark the occasion, we took the opportunity to talk with them about how U2 inspired them to form a band, why they wrote Alison Stewart, and their own particular U2 memories.

In conversation with... Aaron Sams

Today we would like to debut a new feature article series that will run in the break between tour legs. In this series, In conversation with..., we will talk with various members of the U2 fan community and ask them about their history with the band. What made you a fan? What moment did you realize that this was THE song, THE band for you? What has your highlight following U2 been, and when did you realize you were part of something special?

Every fan has their story, and we are happy to share these stories with you all. Our debut interview is with Aaron Sams, creator of the well-known and respected fansite U2wanderer.org, now at its new home U2songs.com. We spoke with him about becoming a fan, collecting memorabilia, and his favourite moments following the band.

Bono back to busking on Christmas Eve

Tonight Bono returned to the annual tradition of busking on Grafton Street on Christmas Eve, an event he has taken part in every year since 2009 (except for 2014 when he was forced to miss it due to hs cycling injuries). His last appearance at this event was in 2013 when he participated in two songs. Tonight he joined fellow Irish musicians Glen Hansard, Hozier, Danny O'Reilly, and members of The Script (among others) for three songs. The first song he took part in was When Love Comes to Town, the second performance of the song this month; an exceptionally rare occurrence. This was followed by Every Breaking Wave. The final song Bono joined in was a cover of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the first time this song appears in our database.

This is the first time Bono has done two original U2 songs at the same annual busking event; One was previously done in 2009 and 2010, and Desire in 2012. In addition, a Christmas song covered by U2, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) was previously done in 2011 and 2012. The group continued to sing after Bono took his leave. Some video of the performance can be seen here.

The full set with Bono was:

  1. When Love Comes To Town
  2. Every Breaking Wave
  3. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
All details for this show including reviews and photos can be found here.

U2Gigs Podcast Episode VI: Return of Experience

It's the end of the tour and the end of the podcast as Matkin and Ax finish their recap of the Innocence + Experience tour. The finale begins with a look at some of their personal highlights, and moves on to a discussion about the events in Stockholm and Paris that led to the White Out Belfast fan campaign. Talk moves on to whether some songs are just too difficult for U2 to perform live, whether this is the last we will see of some Songs of Innocence songs, and wraps up with a summary of what you can expect from us while U2 is on break.

You can download the episode from iTunes here, or listen online here.

If you're wondering where episodes I-III are, episode I was our 360 recap. Episodes II and III got corrupted and had to be purged. Kind of like the Star Wars prequels! Zing!

U2Gigs Podcast Episode V: The Snippets Strike Back

Matkin and Ax continue their recap of the Innocence + Experience tour by looking at how U2 paid tribute to BB King and Dennis Sheehan, who both passed away while U2 were on the road. After this farewell they move on to talk of those pesky snippets, why the website lists Zooropa as a full song, and historical judgement calls. Could some tweaks to the database in the future solve the problem? Also why does U2Gigs list Shine Like Stars but not Do You Hear Us Coming? The episode ends off with a look at what happened to U2's idea of rotating setlists.

You can download part two of our recap from iTunes here, or listen directly here.
