U2.COM : 'DON'T LET IT GO OUT...'

'Don't let it go out...'
Premiering on Facebook, today the band release a new video for 'Song For Someone',  directed by acclaimed illustrator and photographer Matt Mahurin.
Reuniting U2's music and Mahurin's distinctive style - the two worked together on 1993's 'Love Is Blindness' - 'Song For Someone' is a visual meditation on one of the standout tracks from Songs Of Innocence. 
Rendered in a beautiful black and white palette and featuring a performance from Bono filmed earlier this year in Malibu, Mahurin's vision for 'Song For Someone' draws sharp parallels between song, inspiration and other forces of nature.
'Collaboration is a great part of the creative process,' said Matt, talking about working with the band again. 'And it has been a true joy to once again jump aboard the band's mission of music, mercy and mayhem.'
Mahurin's evocative take on 'Song For Someone' contrasts with Vincent Haycock's short film, starring Woody and Zoe Harrelson, which debuted July 9 on SundanceTV.
'Song For Someone' has been a highlight of the  iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour, which resumes September 4 in Turin, Italy.

comment: Satellite Of Love covered by U2 for the first time since 10 December 1993, in tribute to Lou Reed. Like on ZooTV, it featured some recorded vocals from Reed and footage of him on the big screens. Mother And Child Reunion was performed with a guest appearance by Paul Simon. Before Elevation, Bono brought on stage the woman who called 911 after his bicycle accident in November 2014 and one of the firefighters who responded. The printed setlist gave I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For as the last song but One was performed instead.

Watch U2 Play 'Two Hearts Beat as One' Live for First Time in 26 Years!!!

Ever since they soundchecked it in Chicago a month ago, U2 fans have been waiting for the moment when they'd finally break out "Two Hearts Beat as One," a War classic they hadn't played since Dublin's Point Debut in December 1989. On Monday night, it finally happened early into their sixth consecutive Madison Square Garden gig. "We're a band from the North Side of Dublin called the U2," Bono said as Adam Clayton played the opening bass notes of the song. "This is a song we haven't played in a quarter of a century."

The U2 diehards have been clamoring for the song for some time, something Bono seemed aware of. "Oh yeah," he said when they wrapped it up. "Ya happy?" Later in the show, they made a Chilean fan named Ignacio happy when they invited him onstage to play guitar on "Angel of Harlem" and then gave him the instrument to take home.
The show also featured a return of the Songs of Innocence track "The Troubles," which had only been played at three other shows on this tour. The printed setlist called for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" as the closer, but the band opted for "One" instead. Like many previous shows, Bono attempted to have the audience sing most of the song, but the crowd ignored Bono's pleas to not clap and threw off the rhythm. "I'm not a fussy rock star," Bono said. "Just picky." After starting the song over twice, the MSG audience adhered to the singer's request and belted out the beginning of the song a cappella.
The band has looked back as much as forward on the tour, with previous shows featuring the resurrection of "October" and "Gloria," two 1980s tracks which also hadn't been played for some time. U2 return to Madison Square Garden Thursday and Friday for the final two shows of their MSG run.

comment: First performance of Two Hearts Beat As One since 27 December 1989. Angel Of Harlem was performed with a fan, Ignacio from Chile, who was allowed to keep the guitar he played. October was on the printed setlist after Angel Of Harlem but was not performed. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For was on the printed setlist as the last song of the night but U2 played One instead. It had to be restarted after Bono's initial attempts to direct the crowd in a singalong fell out of rhythm.
