NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that one of the most significant rock bands of all time, U2, sat down for an intimate Q&A session with a select group of listeners for the SiriusXM "Town Hall" series at the SiriusXM studios in New York City.
Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. answered questions from SiriusXM listeners about their celebrated career, everything from the very early days of the band when bassist Adam Clayton was their manager and The Edge's mother was the first U2 roadie, to the future of music streaming and distribution to their most recent album Songs of Innocence and their current tour "iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015."
"On a night off during their 8-night, sold-out residency at Madison Square Garden, one of the world's biggest bands came to SiriusXM and delivered to our listeners and some very lucky subscribers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be just inches away from their music heroes and ask them questions. And, at the end, as a surprise, the band invited the SiriusXM Town Hall guests to attend their sold-out show at MSG on July 30—it was truly a memorable and special event—sure to make for an outstanding broadcast," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.
