Over a career that now spans nearly four decades, U2 has produced one hit album after another and created the template for the giant global stadium tour that other bands now use. From their roots in post-punk, the band has grown and incorporated musical styles from synth pop to gospel, while always making socially and politically aware music that hits a nerve with fans. Written by a leading music journalist,U2 Experience documents all of the band's mammoth achievements. The first interactive book to celebrate the legendary Irish rock group, it contains 20 items of removable facsimile memorabilia —including posters, tickets, flyers, and contracts—as well as numerous rare photographs.
