U2 Slapped With Noise Fine

Violation of a city noise ordinance in Barcelona, Spain while rehearsing for a June, 2009 concert has cost U2 18,000 Euros, or about $22,000 - chump change to them.  The violation citing came in response to complaints by residents within ear shot of the late night session the band staged in Camp Nou, the Barcelona soccer stadium.  The band ran-up a larger fine in its own home town the following month, but not for the volume of its music.  Dublin officials fined a promoter $60,000 for noise associated with assembly and break-down of the massive Claw stage after neighbors got so riled up over four days of noise that they protested by blocking equipment trucks as they attempted to leave the venue (story).
