Bono and The Edge called into the Hamish & Andy show on Sydney’s 2DayFM radio on Wednesday (Sept 1st) promoting their upcoming Australian tour. The Edge can’t make his mind up re: big or small, Bono has a yin for brown bread, Edge was on his knees, his brother got electrocuted… or did he? Hilarity ensued.
U2’s Sheffield concert at Don Valley Stadium will be broadcast live on various radio stations around the UK and online at QThemusic.com, and – for subscribers – at U2.com. There will a pre-show interview with the band, a reveal of a Top 10 U2 chart (the band’s best loved songs as voted for by listeners) and live reports from the gig. Starts at 7pm GMT.
The band will be performing three tracks for a Radio 1 Live Lounge session in Jo Whiley’s daytime show from 10.00am. Later today on BBC Radio 2, Chris Evans will play host to U2 on his drivetime show at 5.00pm, interviewing all four members of U2 about the secrets of their success, from their formation in Dublin in 1976, to nine number one albums in the UK and 22 Grammy Awards.
A number of lucky Radio 1 listeners will be able to watch the band live at the BBC Radio Theatre. U2log.com hopes to be able to bring you a special report from inside the theatre.
Update: The band played Get On Your Boots, Beautiful Day und Breathe on the Jo Whiley show. They also recorded Magnificent for another show. See also U2tour.de twitpics.
