Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam also took part in show’s tradition of a Top Ten list. Tonight’s list was “Things U2 Have Learned Over the Years”. The highlight was The Edge’s handling of one of his Top Ten items.

Edge’s line was “Cool Name: The Edge; Uncool Name: The Itch”. Instead, The Edge substituted uncool name “The Itch” for “Sting”.

U2 on Letterman for five nights

U2 will be David Letterman’s guests on the Late Show on Monday March 2nd and on the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after. It is the first time a musical guest has been booked on Letterman for a full week. Perhaps Letterman was so rattled by Joaquin Phoenix’ stint on the show this week, he is aiming for a little stability with U2.

The Late Show airs Monday, March 2-Friday, March 6 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
