To celebrate the release of our new U2 Special Issue of Hot Press, we're offering you the chance to win a stunning U2 painting print by Glenn Matthews – worth over €100!
Artist Glenn Matthews is well known for his paintings of music, sport and movie icons. Having grown up in Carryduff, Belfast he moved to Dublin to chase a girl! He then to Spain for 10 years, where he owned his own bar and played drums in a blues band. Glenn returned to Ireland in 2011, and picked up the paint brush once more. Notable pieces include a tribute to Rory Gallagher, which originally featured on the cover of The French Connection.
With two anniversaries rolled into one, 2020 is an important moment for U2 – marking 40 years since their extraordinary debut album Boy, and 20 years since their marvellously resonant All That You Can’t Leave Behind. The records were world’s apart, surely. Not so fast, says Pat Carty, in a powerful piece that leads our Hot Press U2: 80-00-20 special – hitting shelves this week, and available to order now!
Plus, you'll find interviews with producer Steve Lillywhite and longtime U2 graphic designer Shaughn McGrath – who also designed An Post's new set of U2 stamps! The musicians of Ireland also have their say about the band frequently dubbed the greatest rock band in the world. Make no mistake – it’s a cracker of a read for U2 fans!
We have three prints up for grabs, with one print going specifically to people who buy the new U2 special issue of Hot Press – in a separate, exclusive competition here. So, increase your chances of winning, by picking up the new issue in shops now, or ordering online, and entering now! If you don't get a chance to order the issue, you can still enter here to have a chance of winning one of the remaining prints.
