I was just going to post this.

I am very hopeful that with the full strings section they will do a modified "St. Peters Strings" version of Lights of Home.  That would be...extremely welcome.

A few weeks ago. During the time of the Abbey Road recordings. Looks good.

Does anyone know if this is a hour long or half hour long special?

It's an hour, so use a 90 minute tape to be safe.

Full orchestra at their disposal.. any predictions on the set?
Possibilities that seem obvious.. string version of lights of home. HMKMKMTM. Summer of love. One. MS. Can't think of that many string heavy songs and doubt they will play all of the above... they will want to plug the singles from SOE. Maybe some reworked versions of the classics to include strings?

The poster of it isn't sure, though. Some songs has been changed a few days ago

If anyone wants a warm up before the 19th, I came upon this on Amazon video while searching their catalog to see what U2 goodness they may have.

This is "U2 at the BBC" from 2009 in support of NLOTH.  It is a different format and produced show then the current version of "... at the BBC," it is a decent  hour worth of performances and interviews.  I, for one, had never seen any of this.  Worth a watch!

(Free if you are an Amazon Prime member... other wise I guess one would have to pay to rent it.)

Thanks. 1 hour show with tour footage so I reckon we get to see half dozen of those.

Will there be a way to watch this in the US?  Either live or afterwards?
