India on U2’s mind!


By Hindustan Times

The world’s biggest rock band has India on its radar. Grammy award winning band U2, which recently completed an international tour, is now considering a performance in India.

“I’m so looking forward to doing that, it’s just a matter of when we can do it,” the band’s guitarist David Evans,
better known as The Edge, told HT City at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The Edge and U2 frontman Bono, were at TIFF for the opening of their documentary, From The Sky Down. “I don’t have an answer to that right now,” says The Edge, when asked about when they’re likely to be here.

But, just the news that plans are underway is enough to have their India fans excited. “OMG! I wouldn’t miss it for the world,” says Saurabh Kejriwal, 27. “I’m going to get my drumsticks signed by their drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. no matter how,” says Vasu Singhal, 19.
