U2 loud for Spain
U2 have been fined for practicing too loud in Spain.
The 'Get On Your Boots' rockers reportedly breached noise levels, during rehearsals for their present 360 Degree world tour, angering locals and incurring a fine of 18,000 Euros.
A statement released by local authorities, said the band were fined for: "Rehearsing until midnight, two hours over the scheduled time, and at sound levels above those set by authorities."
The rockers were practicing in a local football stadium in June last year when the noise complaints were made.
The group were also fined over noise levels after a concert at Croke Park in their native Ireland last year attracted complaints from local residents and handed a bill for 36,000 Euros.
Meanwhile, the group played their first ever concert in Russia last night (25.08.10), performing in the country's capital, Moscow, to a crowd including ex-president Mikhail Gorbachev.
The group's set included a performance of Bob Dylan track 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' with Russian singer Yuri Shevchuck.
While in the Russian capital lead singer Bono reportedly met with president Dmitry Medvedev, while guitarist The Edge spent some time with Russian astronauts.Posted on 26 Aug 2010 10:00 to category : Music News
