U2.COM : All The Way From Sao Paulo

At the end of July last year, after 110 shows, the U2360° spaceship took off for the final time.

Nothing captures the vibe like the limited edition live set U22, with 22 songs from three years of shows.

But what was it like to be there on the night, from the second the band walked onstage as  'Real Thing' kicked off to the closing benediction of 'Moment of Surrender' ?

Maybe you were there and you'll never forget... maybe you wouldn't mind a reminder. 

To mark the first anniversary of the end of U2360°, this Saturday, exclusively for our subscribers, we'll be rebroadcasting the third show in Sao Paulo from April 2011.

The rebroadcast will begin at 8pm (Brazil time) on Saturday 28th July and in order to accommodate people in different time-zones, we'll play it again at 8pm (Sydney time) on Sunday July 29th and 8pm (London time) on Sunday July 29th). (Check The World Clock to see what time works best where you are in the world.)

And if you're not a subscriber to and you'd like to listen in, check out the details of a subscription. You get to download 12 tracks from U22 immediately, we put the limited edition package in the mail to you... and your plans for this weekend are sorted!

Bono Attends The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil

U2 front man Bono attended the 7 pm performance of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil at The Mirage in Las Vegas tonight, Sunday, July 8, 2012. The musician was accompanied by his wife Ali along with family and friends. During the performance, the group sipped on vodka tonics as well as one of the show’s signature cocktails called, “Here Comes the Sun".
This was Bono’s first time seeing LOVE but is a huge Beatles fan and was seen singing and dancing along to many of the acts including “Drive my Car” and “Within You Without You.” His favorite part of the show was a scene from “A Day in the Life” when one of the show’s Volkswagen prop cars breaks apart revealing the artists underneath which he said was, “absolutely amazing.”

 While backstage after the show, Bono posed for pictures with the excited cast and playfully asked when Cirque was going to make a show based on the music of U2.
Bono and family were in town to celebrate their daughter Eve’s 21st birthday.
