EXCLUSIVE: U2 partying at The Violet Hour!
U2 hosted a super-private after-party at The Violet Hour on Tuesday.
The Violet Hour publicist just posted this to Facebook:
Ellen Malloy: "U2 after party at Violet Hour...Chicago launch party...details to come. Special invite only. Super exclusivito!!!"
312DD had been hearing buzz from inside the bar earlier about the event happening immediately following the Q&A event at Smart Bar on Tuesday, so apparently this is the real deal.
UPDATE: More from uber-publicist Malloy:
"U2 hosted an exclusive launch party for their new album at the Violet Hour. After a rocking DJ session at Metro, the band headed over to the Violet Hour for an exclusive record-industry event hosted by Interscope Records. The Violet Hour special menu for the evening comprised of Dublin Old Fashioneds (made with Powers Irish Whiskey) and special drinks named after songs on the new record, ('Juliet & Romeo' Moment of 'Surrender' and 'The Magnificent' champagne cocktail). Also served fantastic highlights from the Violet Hour menu.
"Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage, was in attendance, along with her long bright red hair. The band came in through the back door at about 10 for a quick party before jetting off to Boston for the next gig."
