When one of the biggest bands on the planet launches a mysterious countdown to a 'special announcement', you can't help but wonder what big news they have up their sleeve.
We ourselves were speculating that U2 might be announcing a tour for 2024, confirmation of their rumoured Las Vegas residency or even a release date for
