The resources under this menu are offered to help you conduct your study of U2. While not an exhaustive listing, these materials provide reliable, well-researched and accessible information, ranging from items appropriate to the young student through the high school and collegiate levels, to the professional music critic or academic scholar.
This site does not list U2’s extensive catalog of work, nor is it affiliated with U2’s official site.
I will be updating this site from time to time as new materials become available and are selected to include here. If you know of a item you would recommend as a resource for studying U2, please let me know about it through the contact form.
Please see below for more information about our resources. Best wishes for your discoveries.
