U2 has done it all.
The foursome from Dublin, Ireland has sold more than 140 million albums.
They have won more Grammy awards (22) than any other band.
They have already been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Fame. They entered the hall in 2005, their first year of eligibility, and were inducted by Bruce Springsteen.
Rolling Stone magazine ranked them as the 22nd greatest artist of all time.
They have performed at Live Aid, the Super Bowl and released two full length feature films, including the first live-action film shot, produced, and screened exclusively with both 3-D and digital cinema technology.
At one time or another, the band, or one of its members, has campaigned for Amnesty International, the ONE Campaign, and Bono's DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade in Africa) campaign.
U2 is arguably the greatest band of their generation, and one of the best of all time.
U2 released their twelfth album, “No Line on the Horizon,” in March of 2009. To promote the album, the band had been booked to guest on the “Late Show with David Lettermen” for an entire week; the first time Lettermen had ever booked an act for five consecutive shows.
Bono has said that their U2 album that was released at the end of 2009 featured material recorded during the “No Line on the Horizon” sessions.
