We’re back with another episode of the illustrious U2log podcast!

In this episode we catch up after a long hiatus from recording and find that Chris and Christopher are a little rusty in the ways of the podcast. But we did manage to chat a bit about the European tour wrapping up, the North American tour kicking off, Christopher’s plans to attend a concert, U2’s appearance on Saturday Night Live and Gavin Friday’s birthday bash (that’s the section to listen for the sound of Chris getting fired by Caroline — it’s Gavin’s 50th birthday naturally).
U2 played four songs on the Megan Fox hosted Saturday Night Live season premiere last night, three of which were broadcast: Breathe, Moment of Surrender and Ultraviolet. The fourth song, With or Without you, was played after the credits – high five to the band for not mollycoddling the viewers at home. Moment of Surrender was a little shorter than normal and spiced up with some New York/SNL-inspired free form rap.

Hal Willner, who will be working with the band again next week at Gavin Friday’s birthday gig at Carnegie Hall, is SNL’s music director.
