U2 & Letterman 5 Nights ! !
« on: February 12, 2009, 12:10:19 PM »
So, as a Long-Time David Letterman fan/follower ( Seen every show, except a few that I had VCR/record malfunction)

Just heard that March 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th,

U2 is to perform each night that week ! ! ! ! !

Outrageous ! ! ! !

This can only be GOOD, should be GREAT, a Mix of my 2 favorite forms of Entertainment ;D

OH, only if RUSH would do this ! !
Funny 2 of my favorite bands are SO different in this area......
U2 - Very Popular & Exposed to public ( Grammys , News, TV, MTV, More News, Ect )
Rush - Very Unknown, Never on TV/MTV/NEWs/Public exposure ( most hear "Rush" they think Rush Limbaugh ! not even his real name ! )

I normally watch Letterman until the Top 10 list and change it to Leno.  Now that U2 will be on there I'll get to watch the whole show.

How do you know they won't play any new songs? For all we know they will probably play a new song off the album each night.

Also did anybody see the Joaquin Phoenix pseudo-Andy Kaufman interview on Letterman?

It was hilarious. Probably one of the most awkward interviews ever.

That was a preset gimmick, But as you said  H i l a r i o u s........
I generally gauge how "funny" things are if I eek out a burst of laughter, the JP bit got me laughing for sure, If you look closely you can see Joaquin trying not to laugh, I saw a couple uncontrollable smiles from beneath what might have been a fake beard & hair. Was an excellent bit/Interview !

The "news" I heard about U2 unprecedented 5 night gig is to "promote" the new album
I'm Expecting 5 "new" songs & a BUNCH of interaction throughout the week with the band
And probably ALL U2 songs during the breaks & hoping for different stage's,
say like:
On stage normal spot with only U2
on stage normal spot with "Paul & Late Night Orchestra"
On the Roof or marquee
In the street ( closing down the Street ! )
Joining the "Late Night Orchestra " at various times.
some Interview time too........

Rush - cool! One of my earliest musical memories was my older brothers playing Rush in the next room! Even now if I hear that Tom Sawyer song it gives me chills, so great...I grew up just down the road from where Rush comes from!

i think 5 new songs will be premiered worldwide before the David Letterman 5-day-show. so each day we will hear new song. :)

please.....record each episode and please post because i won't be able to watch it the same time as you guys would. it'll be after 2 weeks to be shown here in my place. :(
