I have been so swamped lately I haven't been able to keep up with the will he/won't he rumors about James Hetfield & Metallica, or the many other rumors about Janes Addiction or even Motley Crue, but the newest rumor to cross my desk deserves comment. Yes I think it is possible and likely probable that SXSW will see a drive-by visit from some or all of U2. They are currently on a whirlwind press junket of the United States, and in fact appear to be playing some small unannounced club dates testing what appears to be a mini-style SXSW set (5 songs or so) and are popping up in very unexpected places. I have had a couple birds tell me it's in the works, but no hard confirmation yet. I have all my sensors out and let you know when something substantial trips one. Until then, see you next week at SXSW!
