U2 set for BBC special

U2 are the latest music stars to receive their own Bbc TV special.
The Irish rockers will perform some of their greatest hits as well as new tunes from their upcoming album Songs of Experience at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios for the special, plus an interview with Cat Deeley.
The special will also include a look behind-the-scenes of their concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil last month (Oct17), the end of their Joshua Tree Tour 2017 during which the band allowed TV cameras backstage and gave Deeley a tour.
“U2: Biggest band in the world. Stadium Rock Gods… and all round good eggs!” she said in a statement. “I had the privilege of joining them on tour in Sao Paulo and now they’re coming back to the UK for an intimate show at Abbey Road Studios. I’ll be catching up with the band and there will be performances of brand new tracks and U2 classics. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and I can’t wait!”
Guy Freeman, Editor, Special Events and Formats at BBC Studios added, “I’m delighted that U2 have agreed not only to give us such an exclusively intimate performance, but also to share with Cat and viewers some of the more fun aspects of being part of the world’s biggest rock band.”
The special will air on BBC One in December, and will follow in the footsteps of Adele, Michael Buble, Harry Styles and Sam Smith, who have all landed At the BBC specials.
The news comes shortly after the band, who will release Songs of Experience on 1 December, scored the Global Icon Award at the MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday and performed a free warm-up gig in London’s Trafalgar Square.
