U2 3 NIGHTS LIVE

Now have to find what stations this show will be online for everyone to listen to. And record.


Shirley to present “U2 3 Nights Live”

Shirley will be presenting 2 of the 3 nights for a series of special shows for U2. The shows of the show are as follows;

9 March: live from Los Angeles, “An Inside Look At No Line On The Horizon”, hosted by Shirley Manson, the lead singer of Garbage.
10 March: live from Chicago, “Radio Takeover” featuring a DJ set by U2 and again hosted by Shirley Manson.
11 March: live from Boston, U2 will play live and answer audience questions. Host is yet to be announced.

U2 will be staying in the US to make three more special appearances from the 9th to the 11th of March. FMQB Productions and Interscope records are presenting a "radio extravaganza" called "U2 3 Nights Live" that will be broadcast via satellite on ABC Satellite Services and Westwood One. These three appearances will be:

9 March: live from Los Angeles, "An Inside Look At No Line On The Horizon", hosted by Shirley Manson, the lead singer of Garbage.

10 March: live from Chicago, "Radio Takeover" featuring a DJ set by U2 and again hosted by Shirley Manson.

11 March: live from Boston, U2 will play live and answer audience questions. Host is yet to be announced.

All three appearances will occur at 9-10pm US eastern time on their respective days. Chicago radio station 101.9 FM The Mix have announced a competition to see U2 live on the 10th - indicating U2's appearance may be more than just a DJ set. See here; opportunities to win tickets will be at 10:20am, 11:20am, and 1:20pm weekdays and this will apparently be the only way to see the band. Meanwhile, New York's 101.9 RXP has indicated listeners will have chances to see the gig on the 11th in Boston, while Boston radio stations are advising listeners to tune in on Monday for an announcement (e.g. 104.1 WBCN at 7:15am; 100.7 WZLX at 7:20am).

Exciting times are ahead. We will naturally bring you more news as soon as we have it. As an aside, the appearances on the 9th and 10th of March won't be the first time U2 have shared a stage with Shirley Manson. Garbage opened sone Elevation Tour concerts, and at the last show of the tour, Larry joined them during their set.
