U2 teamed up with Apple for an alleged 100million dollar deal that would see the band give away their new album “Songs of Innocence” for free on every Apple device including iPhone 6 – via iCloud, until mid-October. This is great news for fans of the band but a lot of people have been having issues and getting extremely sick over it. Perhaps they’re making more money than anyone else? Plus they will have a massive tour to promote the album that is guaranteed to put them at the half a billion figure.
U2 made £450 million ($730 million) from the 360° tour that spanned the world.
Below is the kind of nutty, pathetic, pressed messages that people are sending out.
Jimmy Iovine, iTunes, U2, you're a bunch of megalomaniacs. FUCK YOU!

Sharon used to manage various music bands including her husband and had a seat on the X-Factor in 2013 but still I don’t see why U2 giving away their album should affect her life? She has all the money in the world, she had a husband who is a rock legend…but I digress. It is clear Sharon is drumming up interest for her TV show The Talk that just started its new season.
I think U2 should take the high road where far few dare to go. Don’t forget Guy Oseary came up with the deal who is also U2/Madonna’s manager. Now just let the haters hate because they couldn’t figure out a deal to get that much money!
