U2-AOL deal still not done

Published on .

Rock group U2 and America Online have yet to finalize a sponsorship deal for U2's world tour in support of its forthcoming album ``Pop.'' Details of the tour, expected to be the biggest rock tour of 1997, are to be announced on Wednesday. A $15 million deal with AOL is under consideration, but Myer Berlow, AOL's senior VP-ad sales, said the pact hasn't been completed yet. U2 is said to want a major presence on the Internet during the course of the 18-month tour.
