U2 at the end of the world is the strange, intimate, and very funny story of the biggest rock band's biggest tour, a two-year extravaganza that took U2 around the planet and dropped them at a cultural intersection where the most powerful people in art, politics, film, fashion, business and rock & roll all throw their arms around each other and pose for photographs. Here is U2 conferring with Bill Clinton and Bill Burroughs, recording with Frank Sinatra and Sinead O'Connor, partying with Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington, counselling Axl Rose and Eddie Vedder, philosophising with Salman Rushdie and Wim Wanders, jamming with Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, collaborating with William Gibson and Mel Gibson. Here is U2 trying to get a Red Cross flight into Sarajevo, visiting Tokyo strip clubs, joining a Greenpeace action on the Irish Sea, being mobbed in Mexico, bar-hopping in Australia, making movie deals in Hollywood, attacking neo-Nazis in Berlin, and attending the inauguration of the US President. Here is U2 at home writing songs, in the studio recording, and on the set making movies. Here is the most honest portrait ever of the most popular rock band of the 1980s and 1990s, by the author to whom U2 have given complete access with no restrictions or controls. And here is a story about a strange moment at the end of the twentieth century when all the old worlds - cultural, political, technological were disappearing and no-one knew what the new world would be, a moment when heroes, con men and saints were thrown together in a global celebrity culture that made no distinction between the trivial and the profound. Here is how the end of history looks from inside the private jet of the biggest rock group on the planet. Here is U2 at the end of the world.

Descripción Bantam Press, UK, 1995. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Good. 9.4 x 6.4 x 1.9 inches. Book Description The most intimate and appreciative biography of the mega rock band U2 to date--by the author to whom the band gave complete access. When U2 took the stage for their three-year Zoo TV world tour in 1991, Bill Flanagan was there--in the bus, on the plane, in the recording studio and well after hours with the biggest rock band in the world. A tour that began to support the hugely successful Achtung Baby record and ended with a second, even more successful record, Zooropa, took U2 to the far reaches of the world, playing to over a hundred sold-out arenas in over forty cities. U2 At The End Of The World takes you on the world tour and drops you off at the cultural intersection where rock stars meet politicians; where writers, directors, and models all wind up backstage with U2. You're there when the band meets Bill Clinton in a Chicago hotel room; when Salman Rushdie comes out of hiding to join the band onstage at Wembley Arena in London; when Frank Sinatra and Bono record their famous duet, "I've Got You Under My Skin." And finally, when the band performs their last Zoo TV concert in Tokyo in 1993 and nearly collapses from physical and mental exhaustion, you are there with them waiting for the end of the world. Augmented with sleek photos by renowned photographer Anton Corbijn, U2 At The End Of The World is the most definitive book on the band to date. From the Trade Paperback edition.
