The Edge and Bono revisited a familiar site when they dropped in on the new O2 Arena in Dublin over the weekend. The new arena was built on the site of the old Dublin venue, The Point. The Point was a simple venue that was converted from a railway depot. U2 fans will remember the venue from the Rattle and Hum movie. The band performed Desire and Van Diemen’s Land at The Point for the Rattle and Hum movie. They were the first band to play the venue.
In keeping up with tradition Bono and the Edge were technically the first to play the new O2 Arena Dublin reprising their past performances during Rattle and Hum. The performance certainly got many fans anxious about the new U2 album and 2009 U2 tour. No details for a tour have been released but speculation about U2 planning their tour is underway.
