BB King to team up with U2 again at Glastonbury

BB King is performing on the West Holts Stage on the Friday night underneath headliner Jimmy Cliff. When Love Comes to Town is inevitable on the Pyramid with u2 I guess

Wow last I saw he was looking weak and in a wheelchair. Staggering how hardworking he still is.

Let's hope BB King's Band shows up to provide some brass for Angel of Harlem as well.

I hate to say it, but I have to agree. WLCTT was good during the JT/R&H years, but now it just wouldn't "fit" with our current version of U2. Plus, Bono's voice is too high a register now to do the song justice.

I agree, I never liked that collaboration all that much. Bono should just tell BB that he will join him for his set, but not the other way around.

BTW, crazy that Bono is only a couple years younger than BB was when R&H was filmed ("Here he is, fifty-two ear--year old, an' look what he's tryin' to do!").

But wouldn't that mean dropping Elevation from the set. :o
