Dig our digital Fall Arts Guide

u2A couple times a year, a bunch of Sun arts writers and editors put their heads together and come up with a pretty comprehensive events guide.

The latest one is the Baltimore Sun Fall Arts Guide.

Dig it

I wrote a little bit about the Sept. 29 U2 concert at FedEx Field, which promises to be quite the show.

Heading out to see the U2 shows in Chicago next weekend. Going to be an awesome time!!

Is it just me or has U2 been playing the same song 1992? I'm not saying it's a bad song, I'm just saying ... Hey it's the end of the movie, where is "It's a Beautiful Day"?

They're kind of like the Rolling Stones now.

Yeah, I would say they are my generation's Rolling Stones. New mediocre album every four years, massive tour behind it playing the oldies. Still, they put on a great (if short) show every night. More of a business-model for the industry now then a cutting edge act. Still, what band now wouldn't want to reap that levelof success 30 years in?

Bono has been called the songbird of our generation.

"They're kind of like the Rolling Stones now."
Almost, they still need to put out a live album after every tour and release a plethora of interchangable hit compilation albums before every tour with no new album to support and most gift giving holidays.

Oh!...and Bono needs to campaign to get knighted like Mick did!

Hmmm..... so Baltimore Beer Week, ten days of celebrating the art of zymurgy, doesn't count, eh? Or maybe you could shoe-horn it in?
