Usually support bands have a one-in-fifty chance of being anything other than desperately average. When you're in U2's league though, you don't need to bother with the unknown bands, you can go straight to the top.
As part of their upcoming 360 Degrees tour in North America, U2 have signed up three massive names in music to set the mood for them. Lenny Kravitz, The Fray, and best of all, Interpol will be accompanying the Irish rockers at different stages of the tour.
