U2 To Release Collectable Atomic Bomb
October 18, 2004

Every day that we get closer to the release of U2's How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, some more news about the band's future plans comes out.  Billboard reports that a special collector's edition of the album will be released simultaneously with the regular version of the album on November 23.  The special edition will include a DVD of U2 in the studio as well as four songs performed acoustically.  It will all be packaged inside a 48-page hard-bound book.

As reported last week, U2 performed on the BBC's long-running music series Top of the Pops outdoors on Friday for hundreds of fans.  In addition to the single "Vertigo," the band played two other songs from the new album: "All Because of You" and "City of Blinding Lights."  U2 will embark on a massive world tour in 2005, however they will not be a part of the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. next June.  The NME reports that Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis has said U2 could not fit it into their touring schedule, but would like to play the festival someday.

Last but not least, it appears that U2 and Apple's partnership extends beyond the usage of "Vertigo" in the new iTunes commercials. Bono and The Edge will be appearing alongside Apple founder Steve Jobs at an invite-only event in San Jose, CA on the morning of Tuesday, October 26.  U2 fansite atu2.com speculates that a U2-themed iPod could be in the works, which may be pre-loaded with the band's entire catalog, though nothing is confirmed at this point.
