Irish supergroup U2 are planning to take time out of the Australian leg of their Vertigo World Tour next year (06), to climb Sydney's famous Harbour Bridge.

The Beautiful Day rockers will don grey jumpsuits to blend in with the famous monument as they climb the bridge with the assistance of harnesses in March (06).

However, instead of the usual tourist trip up and down the steel bridge, the band's management are currently in talks with BridgeClimb owners to spice up the attraction.
