About this Book
The official, fully endorsed, inside story of the biggest rock tour of all time: U2’s 360º.
The stats are truly epic: $700m in receipts; three sets costing $10m each of which take 150 trucks to transport; an audience of 7 million people — a single performance in Pasadena, California, setting the world record for a single rock concert at 97,014 attendees.
With exclusive contributions from the band, manager Paul McGuiness, world renowned set designer Willie Williams (who also designs sets for George Michael, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rolling Stones and many more) and exclusive photographs from tour photographer Ralf Larmann. The book will be written by Dylan Jones who has been given complete access, including behind the scenes at Glastonbury 2011.
