According to fansite atu2.com, the band’s high profile manager Paul McGuinness confirmed the news in the latest edition of Rolling Stone, and apparently already has his eye on more profits for the money-making monster of a rock group.
“There will be multiple formats,” he said. “If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value.”
After their massive 360 world tour recently became the highest grossing tour of all time, U2 will take their high-production show to the Glastonbury festival tomorrow night (June 24th), when they headline the event’s Pyramid Stage a year after being forced to withdraw due to an injury sustained by frontman Bono.
The band’s 1993 follow up ‘Zooropa‘ will also be released as part of a special box-set.
