U2 is pulling out all the stops to hype its new CD, "No Line on the Horizon," which hits stores tomorrow. Bono and the boys played a surprise gig Friday on top of the BBC building in London, and tonight the lads take up residence on "The Late Show With David Letterman," where they'll be Dave's musical guest all week. (It's the first time a band has been given five nights on Letterman's show.) That's not all. According to the Hartford's Courant Eric Danton, the guerilla marketing campaign continues Friday, when Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. play what was supposed to be a "secret show" on the steps of Keating Hall at Fordham University. (Profs have been asked to cancel all their classes, but not told why.) So what, you say? Well, it's very hush-hush, but we hear that the Irish icons are looking to play a similarly stealth club show in Boston. No one will confirm it - or deny it, for that matter - but word is the mega-selling band, which had no difficulty selling out seven shows at the former Fleet Center in 2005, may return to its roots with a show March 11 at the Paradise. Why not the more spacious House of Blues? U2 is nothing if not nostalgic, and the band played its first headlining show in Boston at the Paradise in 1981. Of course, this would not be the band's only New England show promoting its 12th album. They're expected to play at Gillette Stadium in September.

No, I do not watch the news or read the local papers. I mostly listen to local and national NPR for news. Once in a while I catch the free Thursday papers: The Phoenix and The Dig.

So, does anyone have any information on tickets? I see that Fleetwood Mac is playing the Garden next Wednesday, the 11th, so that is the night U2 is playing.

Any information that anyone (who watches TV more than I do) has would be much appreciated!

Matty - there are ZERO tickets avail for this U2 show... all seats were given away by radio station contests, and are long gone. There are some funny craigslist pleas for tix though.

I *may* head into somerville that night anyway, as Enter the Haggis is playing Johnny D's - and I like me some canadian style celtic rock!

I shoulda called you last night... I ended up at Jeannie Johnsons and the Gate...

AH nice! How was your night in JP? I would have come out for a beer.

I doubt I will make it out any night this week. Long week at work.

Last Friday I made it out to the Milky Way. Great music from Zili Misik!

No plans yet for this coming Friday.

I had a blast in JP. I have no idea why the text is crazy like this. more on U2:

Somerville officials bracing for a crush of U2 fans are stressing that followers won’t find what they’re looking for if they come to Davis Square tomorrow (today) in search of tickets to the Irish megaband’s exclusive show.
“We expect massive crowds but there will be no tickets for sale in Davis Square or anywhere else,” said Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone. “This is strictly through invitation or radio stations.”
More than 50 Somerville cops will be on duty for the show at the 900-seat Somerville Theater and streets around the venue will be shut down. Officials are urging fans to use the MBTA Red Line and not to drive to Davis Square.

The event comes seven years after a similar exclusive show hit the historic theater featuring New Jersey superstar Bruce Springsteen. Curtatone, who said he received confirmation of the U2 gig over the weekend, said the city is getting used to hosting major events.
“We’ve had a lot of exciting events here,” he said. “It’s a great honor for Somerville and a major challenge. The atmosphere will be electric.”
The Somerville show is the last of three small venue appearances as part of a warm-up for a U.S. tour in support of U2’s latest smash album “No Line on the Horizon,” which is expected to debut at No. 1 on Billboard this week. The rockers first played Boston in 1980 at the Paradise as an opening act and vocalist Bono has said the Hub was the first American city to embrace the band.
Today, trucks of all types and sizes have dropped off lighting and sound equipment at the Davis Square theater’s back entrance. A roadie confirmed that U2 will be rocking Somerville.
“It’s not a secret anymore,” said U2 fan Nancy McNeil, 46, who drove down from North Reading today to catch the pre-show buzz. The funky venue, which also is home to the Museum of Bad Art, will now cram in 900 lucky U2 fans.
