Will there be a way to watch this in the US?  Either live or afterwards?
No idea. I probably can in the Netherlands. I know it for sure this Sunday. Then I can see the TV guide for next Tuesday

I watched it and it was fine. Some nice versions. I didn't think Bono's voice was in top form and I thought that version of All I Want is You should absolutely, 100% have been included in the show over some tired standards like Beautiful Day. Also, too many commercials leaving the interviews cut too substantially.

What was the list they played?

What was the list they played?

Opened with Beautiful Day, then Lights of Home, With or Without You, Get Out of Your Own Way, One and Love is Bigger.

Interspersed with about three brief interview segments and a tour of backstage at the JT Tour in Brazil. Of the 60 minutes, easily 14-15 were commercials.

If UK'ers are getting an extended version with no commercials, I want that one. Full orchestra at the BBC and you cut All I Want is  You? Poor choice.

Cool, I've always wanted to hear WOWY with an orchestra.  At this point I think it's safe to say, as has been mentioned elsewhere 563,789 times, the band is on a mission to make people think they only ever wrote 7 songs: WOWY, One, Streets, Vertigo, SBS, Still Haven't, and BD.

Really looking forward to this. I'm not sure what else will be in the 15 minute extended one on 28th. Would fully expect All I Want Is You to be played tonight. Of the newer songs was hoping for Little Things.

13 is also played. They could add that to the broadcast. I just should have had attended that show for real

Its true, U2 rarely if ever play interesting songs live on TV anymore. Have they done some research saying that non fans love Beautiful Day that much. Funny my falling in love with U2 moment was when they performed at the Brits in 2001. They played Beautiful Day then too! But it was Until The End Of The World which grabbed me.
