u2 played the song magnificent on letterman on tuesday (and bono + eyeliner on the cover of rolling stone)
as atu2 points out, inside the march 19 issue of rolling stone, it says that u2 will put out another album in 2010 and that it will, according to the bono "be quieter than No Line in many ways, it's that ghost album of hymns and Sufi singing. We're making a kind of heartbreaker, a meditative, reflexive piece of work, but not indulgent."

u2 played magnificent last night on letterman. bono gave a happy birthday shout out to sam o'sullivan and dave told adam "i can feel that right in my chest. tremendous!" (me, too).
bono is now posting video diaries on u2.com - here's part 1, what i like to call a report from the bottom half of bono's face.
paul mcguinness talks to hot press about the tour. (6 weeks in europe to start, then 6 weeks in north america. football stadiums only in the u.s. - no baseball stadiums).
u2.com posted this not really that helpful info about friday morning: The band will be performing live on ABC's 'Good Morning America' this Friday morning at 8am. No word on the location but word is that it's definitely 8am. More if we get it. good morning america's website says: Please note no public tickets are available to this show. Per the band, the performance is open only to students at a private university in New York City.
