Bono Fears U2 Becoming Irrelevant

(Gibson) Bono has once again expressed concerns about U2's future, saying the band must "make hits" if they are to survive. Speaking to London's The Sun, the singer said the group has struggled in recent years to create successful singles. His comments come on the heels of a statement made to Rolling Stone that he "wasn't sure the future hasn't dried up" for the band.

"Get on Your Boots," the highest-charting single from U2's last album, failed to crack the Top 10, while other singles culled from the album languished outside the Top 20.

"We've been on the verge of irrelevance for the last 20 years," Bono told The Sun. "But this moment, now, for me, feels like really close to the edge of relevance. We can be successful and we can play the big music and the big places." more on this story
