Rearview: The week in review (12/15/08 - 12/19/08

This week, U2 threw its colleagues at Live Nation a curve when it unexpectedly -- well, in this economy, it shouldn't really come as too big a surprise -- set about cashing in the 1.6 million shares it received as part of a 360 deal it signed with the entertainment conglomerate. According to a report filed by the Wall Street Journal, the current stock value is only at a fraction of what the band is guaranteed through its agreement, which means the company will now have to make up for the other $19 million in losses it will incur as a result. D'oh! Needless to say, things were decidedly less grim here at Backbeat headquarters (well, aside from the fact that we still owe clubs editor Jon Solomon twenty bucks, but that's a whole other Oprah). Anyhow, here's links to everthing we wrote about in the blog this week in case you missed it. -- Dave Herrera
