poetry rocks

July 1, 2017

In case you missed this bit of good news, U2 is projecting poetry on the big screen during The Joshua Tree 2017 tour. The lineup of poets and poems varies from location to location. See a partial list here. According to the Toronto Sun, “The band has licensed two poems by Canadian parliamentary poet laureate George Elliott Clarke to appear as projections before every show.” If you want to see (and hear) some poetry, the Tour wraps up this round of U.S. appearances tonight in a sold-out show in Cleveland, Ohio, resumes next Saturday in London, and returns to the U.S. in September.
