U2, Ireland's sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Capital One Arena!
U2 was formed in Dublin (Ireland) in 1976 and consists of Bono (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and harmonica), The Edge (lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). Their musical style is best described as a blend of indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegaze), post punk (a broad type of rock music that emerged from the punk movement of the 1970s, in which artists departed from the traditional garage rock template of punk to pursue a variety of avant garde sensibilities), and their lyrics have a notable bent towards social, political, and personal subject matter. They've had a stellar career with 14 studio albums, 1 live album, 3 compilation albums, 8 extended plays, 67 singles, 67 music videos, 15 video albums, and they've sold over 170 million records worldwide. They've received many accolades including 22 Grammy Awards (more than any other rock band).
