U2 kick their promotion for No Line on the Horizon into high gear tonight with the first of five nights in a row on CBS's Late Show With David Letterman. Those performances will help U2 get ready for their world tour, which Bono announced on Friday will get under way in the early summer. He told the BBC that they had "something very special planned" and that they were looking at "a whole new way of trying to do shows outdoors and make them very intimate."
Bono also revealed that U2 want to have cheaper tickets prices on this tour because of the worldwide recession. He added, "We're also going to have some very expensive ticket prices because rich people have feelings too!" No Line on the Horizon is in stores tomorrow.
U2 are rumored to be wrapping up their week in New York with a performance on the Fordham University campus -- but it's for students only.
U2 did a rooftop show Friday night in London. They played four songs -- "Get on Your Boots," "Magnificent," "Vertigo" and "Beautiful Day" atop the B-B-C's office tower. It came at the end of the day of a number of BBC Radio appearances and attracted five-thousand people in the streets below.
