U2 to reissue their 1991 album 'Achtung Baby'?

Singer-songwriter John Vanderslice claims he overheard the remastering session

On March 27, 1992, Bono took his clothes off in the middle of a crowded restaurant in London. He was drinking heavily, but according to his publicist, he was actually being interviewed by a journalist who was so bland and unimaginative that Bono thought it would be a good idea to strip.
U2 could be set to reissue a new version of their 1991 album 'Achtung Baby'.

According to singer-songwriter John Vanderslice, the Irish group's seventh studio effort was being remastered in the next room to his in a Los Angeles studio.

"They're remastering 'Achtung Baby' in next room," he said on his Twitter page - Twittter.com/JohnVanderslice, before later asking his followers. "Any suggestions for witty opening salvos to drop on U2 crew when I barge in on 'Achtung Baby' remastering session?"

Confirmation on the reissue has yet to be announced, but a 2011 remastered edition of the LP would coincide with the 20th anniversary of it's release in November 1991.

As previously reported, U2 are currently on tour in Europe, where they have showcased a number of new songs, including tracks called 'North Star' and 'Glastonbury'.
