About inTO the Heart:
inTO the Heart is a festival conceived by local Greater Toronto Area U2 fan members of the U2GTA fan club as an opportunity for fans from around the globe to meet together and celebrate not only the music, but also the spirit, passion and vibe of U2. Entering its third year, ITH is for anyone whether they've been following U2 since the early 80's or are merely a casual U2 listener. Thanks to hundreds of fans from 3 continents, our inaugural festival in 2003 was a success beyond our expectations. Inspired to push the limits of our partying potential, ITH 2004 was bigger and better and came as we hungered for a pre-tour U2 fix. Now fresh from back-to-back sold-out stadium shows in Europe, U2 will make Toronto Vertigo Tour Central as they kick of the second North American leg with not one, not two or threeÂ but four eagerly awaited shows in support of their latest release How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.
