Top U2 News Stories

Bono and The Edge surprised commuters in Berlin, Germany performing a 15 minute set that included "Get Out of Your Own Way", "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "One" in the "Deutsche Oper (Berlin U-Bahn)" subway station on Wednesday. We found the best video clip online for you to watch and enjoy.

U2 debuted "American Soul" for the very first time in front of a live audience last night in New York City. The band performed "Get Out of Your Own Way" as well. Watch the complete performances below:

The rock icons come to grips with the future - with flashes of their past - on 'Songs of Experience'

**** 1/2 (four and a half stars out of 5)

By David Fricke, Rolling Stone

It is nearly business as usual. "Nothing to stop this being the best day ever," Bono declares in "Love Is All We Have Left," at the start of U2's sequel to 2014's Songs of Innocence. But the singer's delivery is striking in its restraint: like cautious prayer or a fragile wish, suspended over the rippled-sea strum of the Edge's guitar and Adam Clayton's bass-guitar gravity. Bono quickly straps on his bravado in "Lights of Home": "One more push and I'll be born again," he crows, framed by the Edge's skidding-blues licks and drummer Larry Mullen Jr.'s rock-grip twist on hip-hop stride.

You hear near-fatal reckoning too. "I shouldn't be here 'cause I should be dead," Bono admits in that song's first line, alluding to his recent "brush with mortality" (as the Edge put it in a recent interview). If Songs of Innocence was rock's most persistently hopeful band looking back in wonder at its punk-rock origins and unlimited dreaming in late-Seventies Dublin, Songs of Experience is U2 in late-middle age coming to grips with an inevitable reality: They no longer have all the time in the world.

Remarks:

U2 performed tonight in Trafalgar Square in front of 7,000 people in conjunction with their appearance on the 2017 MTV EMA Awards. New single "Get Out of Your Own Way" was performed for the very first time live as well as twice, the second time for a live music video shoot. Prior to the first version of "Get Out of Your Own Way", Bono read a piece of Czeslaw Milosz's poem "Gift" (this performance of the song ended up being aired live during the MTV EMA Awards on Sunday). For the second version of "Get Out of Your Own Way", protest signs were distributed to the audience members for the music video. Bono stated that the song was a "protest against yourself" but later joked that "if you want to protest us, that's cool." At the end of the song, Bono took a megaphone and shouted out Kendrick Lamar's rap lyrics from the studio version of the song.
