No Line on the Horizon was released in March 2009, and I immediately fell in love it with as I had with All That You Can’t Leave Behind. U2 promoted their new release with five consecutive nights on the David Letterman Show and a mini concert and interview at Fordham University broadcasted on Good Morning America. My favorite songs off of No Line are Get on Your Boots, I’ll Go Crazy if I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight, Breathe, No Line on the Horizon, and Moment of Surrender. U2 went on the road to support No Line on the Horizon with the 360 Tour. For this tour, U2 went back to stadiums. It seemed my U2 obsession had returned, after a brief vacation during Vertigo, and here is what I had to say about it.
Wednesday March 18, 2009
The U2 obsession has started again. The new album No Line on the Horizon came out on March 3, and I got it March 4 – and have listened to nothing else since. It’s really great! And they are touring this Fall and next Summer. Tickets go on sale next week. I’m trying to see them in Chicago with Tasha, in Raleigh with Vicki, in Atlanta, and in Oklahoma with Tasha. I’ve booked hotels just in case.
