Almost as exciting as the Rolling Stones documentary film news is the information that U2 have announced a new tour which will be their most spectacular to date, to be called "The Corporate Rock Multi-Media Tour". The band will close the world-tour with 77 sell-out shows in Madison Square Gardens, compered by a laughing Bill Clinton, whose heavy-weight political presence will add even more cutting-edge rock credibility to the band's already immense cutting-edge rock credibility. Bono and his ego will travel to the shows in separate vehicles "for security reasons," revealed a figure well-placed within the band's coterie.
Their new single, Politicians Are Great Guys Once You Get To Really Know Them, comes out on July 4th, when the band play an intimate gig, beamed across America, before an audience of close friends in the White House. Excitingly, music legend Christina Aguileira shares singing duties on the single, while consumers who purchase U2's newest product will also be treated to the revamping of an old favourite, "All-American Irishman", containing a spoken-word intro "rap" by British PM Gordon Brown.
