U2 Washington DC Tickets
U2 is one of the most successful pop rock bands in the world. Originally hailing from Ireland, the four-piece started making music in the early 1980s. Their ethereal sound and hyperbolic lyrics instantly gained the band a fan base which has been growing to this day. U2 has released fourteen studio albums by 2017, the latest one being “Songs of Experience”. U2 is towards the closing of their two-year-long “Joshua Tree Tour” at present and is prepared to begin touring in support of its latest album in 2018. Amongst many other venues in the U.S, the band is visiting the Capital One Arena. U2 Washington DC tickets for this event are now available for purchase.
The Power of U2
Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol, Oasis and Maroon 5 are just some of the bands that consider U2 a huge inspiration. Clearly, the Irish powerhouse has made an impression in the music industry. Band Lead Bono has introduced the idea of ‘anthemic hits’ which many songwriters following him have taken notice of. Gary Barlow and Noel Gallagher quote Bono’s songwriting as instrumental in their own writing experience.
When U2 first arrived in the music scene with “Boy” (1980), there was nothing like them. The band created their own artistic space and genre, eventually not just leaving their mark on, but taking over the music map. They were a refreshing break from the Barbie-pop which had otherwise taken over the 80s. By the 90s, U2 was (understandably) a big deal and their popularity only increased over the years. Their music was some of the earliest to incorporate electronic sounds, as the band would combine ethereal rock with expansive electronic music. Their hits such as “With or Without You”, “Vertigo”, “In a Little While” and “One” have awed and moved generations of music listeners, something the band is successful at to date.
