U2's The Edge Says 'Elevation' A Rock Song, But U2's Not A Rock Band

Posted on Thursday, June 07 @ 01:31:05 CEST by Macphisto

(Launch.com) -- (6/6/01, 3 p.m. ET) -- Since late March, U2 has been trooping around North America on its Elevation world tour. Now the song "Elevation," a rocking track from the group's latest album, All That You Can't Leave Behind, is getting its chance to shine as the Irish quartet's latest single. U2 is in the midst of a four-night stand at Boston's FleetCenter. Tonight (June 6) the band will be featured performing the song live from the FleetCenter during halftime of the game one telecast of the NBA Finals (news - web sites)

(Guitarist and singer the Edge tells LAUNCH that he's pleased to see some attention being afforded to the track. "That's probably the closest thing to a rock-and-roll song we've come up with for a while. I mean, people always talk about rock 'n' roll and U2, and I suppose in the very general sense we are a rock 'n' roll band. But actually, you know, if you think about what rock 'n' roll is about, we're not really part of that scene at all and never have been. I don't know what we are--maybe a, just a very loud folk group," he says. "'Elevation' is kind of the closest we will probably come to rock-and-roll. It just had an energy and a kind of vitality from the word 'go' that made everybody very excited."

(U2 has two weeks left on the North American leg of the tour before starting a European swing in early July. The group is expected to return to the U.S. for more dates in the fall.
