Currently one of the biggest bands on the planet, U2 was formed in Dublin in 1976. Their political and social sensibilities have informed much of their work, with frontman Bono one of the most recognised lead-singers in the world.
U2, comprising of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, have never been afraid of reinventing themselves. Their long-haired rabble-rousing days of the 1980s saw the release of iconic songs such as Sunday Bloody Sunday and Pride (In The Name Of Love).
Many fans consider The Joshua Tree as their seminal work, before the bluesy-swagger of Rattle and Hum. However, perhaps their most notable transformation was from a rock band into a dirty, industrial, electro-rock band, for the Achtung, Baby! album.
The U2 juggernaut is still rolling, aided and abetted by Bono’s extraordinary vocals and The Edge’s minimalist, jangling guitar work. True pioneers, they show no sign of slowing. See our collection of pictures and posters of one of the biggest bands ever to grace a stadium stage.
