No official report anywhere else.

Considering they are releasing another album at the end of the year and they have just broke every ticket sales record in Europe and America this past month it sounds dubious.


Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans

Perhaps if they did break up it would allow Edge to spend more time supporting New Orleans musicians get back up on their feet:

Music Rising is a campaign that was launched to rescue the musical culture of the Central Gulf region of the United States from the destruction caused by the catastrophic hurricanes of the summer of 2005 by replacing the musical instruments lost or destroyed in the deluge. It was created in November of 2005 by The Edge, Bob Ezrin and Henry Juszkiewicz with inaugural partners Gibson Musical Instruments, Guitar Center Music Foundation, MusiCares and Musicians Friend. Through these partners’ generous contributions of money and time – along with the contributions of many other wonderful individuals and organizations - Music Rising was able to provide replacement instruments to 2,700 professional musicians from the Central Gulf region many of whom had been displaced to over 34 States. That was Phase One.

On September 25th, 2006 Music Rising heralded the commencement of Phase Two with an historical performance by U2 and Green Day at the Superdome in New Orleans saluting Music Rising, the people of New Orleans and the New Orleans Saints who were returning to their home building for the first time since the devastation. Phase Two is dedicated to helping churches and schools who were affected by the hurricanes to rebuild their music programs by replacing the instruments that they lost in the devastation. Phase Two is being administered by The Gibson Foundation and enjoys the continuing support of The Guitar Center Foundation, Musicans Friend and now includes new partners The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, All Congregations Together and The Bush Clinton Katrina Fund.

When Music Rising first launched in November 2005 Gibson Guitar pledged one million dollars to be raised by the sale of a limited edition Gibson Les Paul Music Rising Guitar offered to the public through partner Guitar Center at its locations around the country. One year later, Gibson offered a limited edition Epiphone Music Rising guitar with all proceeds going directly to Music Rising to raise another million dollars.

For a community based response to supporting New Orleans music from the grassroots up, check out www.threadheadrecords.com - a non-profit record label which has offered recording opportunities for New Orleans artists who may have otherwise never had the chance to put their music out there.
