U2 Launch "From the Ground Up"
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 11:43:50
"The story of the U2360° tour is as epic as the numbers, from the seven million people who bought tickets to the logistics of moving three identical sets around continents each one taking 150 trucks to transport. Above all, it was an epic experience led by the music and the show. This is the story of U2's biggest tour to date and biggest tour of all time."
With these words U2's manager Paul McGuinness introduces From the Ground Up, the inside account of the 360° Tour which takes readers behind the scenes from Bono's kitchen table where he first tries to imagine a new stage design to the final night of what became the biggest tour ever.
The lavish 260-page large-format hardback photo book, with text by Dylan Jones and photography by Ralph Larmann, is the definitive account in words and images of the epic two years that was U2360°.
And for U2.com subscribers From the Ground Up now comes with sound!
