U2’s BBC rooftop gig
Awesome. U2 live for free!!
Having picked up news yesterday that U2 were going to be doing a live gig on the BBC roof (as part of today’s BBC U2 day), there was great excitement in our household. So a handful of us on the staff were able to go onto the All Souls roof and probably had the best seats in the house/world.
The performed 4 songs:
From No Line on the Horizon:
- Get on your boots
More recent faves:
- Vertigo (well they had to, really, didn’t they)
- Beautiful Day
Regent St was stacked full of crowds – the police closed it off while they performed. But despite starting much later than we’d been told, it was very good humoured and positive. What a buzz!
