By Gordon Deegan, Irish Examiner

Accumulated losses at U2's main Irish firm increased by over €2m last year to nearly €10.5m.

New figures for the band's Not Us Ltd show that the firm plunged further into the red, with accumulated losses going from €8.35m to €10.49m in the 12 months to the end of December last.

The firm is being supported by Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr, and Adam Clayton, who provided a directors' loan of €2.25m last year. A note attached to the accounts states that the directors' loan attracts an annual interest rate of 3% per annum.

The figures, recently lodged with the Companies Office, show that the cash pile at the band's firm last year dropped from €545,706 to €160,196.

Remarks:

It's the final concert of the U2 360 Tour as well as the first time U2 has ever played a show in New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada. "The Ballad Of Springhill" (aka: Springhill Mining Disaster) is performed for 30-40 seconds soon after "I Still Haven't Found..." and it is the first time U2 has played any portion of this song live since 1987. The band debuts "40" for the first time on the tour and it is the final song of the concert (in Pittsburgh only a snippet of "40" was performed at the end). It is the first time U2 has ever debuted an original song in the final show of a tour. Just prior to playing this song, U2 sprayed fans with a bottle of champagne, and at the end, each band member walked off the stage with Larry Mullen the last to leave. U2's most profitable tour (7.3 million tickets sold grossing over $736 million dollars) comes to a graceful conclusion.
