Product Description:

The story of a world-renowned band's never-ending energy, drive and commitment to social causes-and of a charismatic showman's efforts to influence politics to change world policies and bring an end to poverty, hunger and social injustice, U2: A Rock Crusade comes to DVD May 12 from Infinity Entertainment Group.
More than 33 years and 170 million album sales later and with more Grammy Awards than any other group in history, it's hard to believe U2 began as a teen-aged “kitchen band” in Ireland in 1976. As well known for philanthropy as music, lead singer Bono is a tireless worker for social and economic change in Third World countries.
Part of what also makes U2 so special is the band's original lineup remains in tact: Paul (Bono) Hewson, Larry Mullen Jr., Dave (The Edge) Evans and Adam Clayton are family. If one member is unable to play, the band postpones a concert rather than substitute their “brother.” Another reason they have captured the imagination of music lovers around the globe is their dedication and special relationship with fans.
“To use your star power for people who have no power at all has to be a good thing,” says Bono, whose passion for philanthropy began at age 19 when he saw a comedy charity show hosted by John Cleese. Since then, he has been named Time magazine's 2005 Person of the Year and become the only person in history nominated for Academy, Golden Globe and Grammy awards, as well as the Nobel Peace Prize.
