You can read my piece in today’s paper about U2′s charity donation and what this tells us about their business affairs here. It’s very interesting to read the urbane and smart Paul McGuinness talking about the band’s profits from live shows as this is usually something never discussed by any members of Team U2. In fact, as you can see in the piece, the €5 million profits from the Irish shows allows us to take a wild guess at U2′s profits from their last tour. I’ve turned off comments here, but you can fume about the piece, U2′s tax baloney and the rest of it on the op-ed page piece.


Buddy, can you spare a million?
