U2 Takes Berlin

Looking to rekindle interest in a languishing album (ranked 117 on Amazon), U2 will do a free concert at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on Nov. 5.  The concert, which falls  a few days shy of the 20th anniversary of the fall of wall dividing East and West Berlin, coincides with the European MTV Awards.  The U2 set will be beamed to London's O2 Arena.  Several concerts have been staged at the site since the collapse of the Communist state, most famously the performance of The Wall by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.  10,000 tickets for the short set were gone in 3 hours.  Sunday's (11/25) U2 YouTube web cast from the Rose Bowl (story) has eclipsed the 10 million stream count.
