With their 12th album, ‘No Line On The Horizon,’ due out March 3, the Bono-led supergroup U2 will perform five straight nights on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman,’ beginning March 2. This will be the first time that a musical guest will perform an entire week on the CBS late night broadcast.
The group is coming off a show-opening performance at the 51st Grammy Awards that was decidedly lackluster (typically good energy, underwhelmed by the song). The Boston Globe called it “OK,” but described Bono’s eyeliner as “exquisite.” Uh-oh, what’s that say when Bono’s makeup gets better reviews than the music?
U2 last appeared on the LATE SHOW on Oct. 29, 2001, where they performed and Bono was also interviewed on the broadcast. On June 10, 1997, Bono appeared with Larry Mullen Jr. to talk to Letterman on the program.
