more changes for U2 as 2013 comes to an end

The past two months have been quite busy in the U2 world, after not much going on since the 360 Tour ended over two years ago. First, we got the news that U2’s fifth member Paul McGuinness will no longer be their manager – U2 will now be managed by Live Nation, more specifically Guy…
