U2 at the Brit Awards

Today, U2 opened the Brit Awards. They performed just Get On Your Boots. Yesterday, the band had spent over an hour soundchecking it. Today, the performance was a bit more refined than at the Grammys ten days ago, but still with some roughness around the edges. It was presented similarly to the Grammys, with a pre-recorded intro combining "let me in the sound" with Bono singing the melody of the relevant national anthem - this time, of course, God Save The Queen rather than The Star Spangled Banner.At the same time, the Union Jack flashed on screen behind Bono before morphing into vivid colours as the song kicked in. Again, the lyrics were flashed on screen during the song. Bono stayed up on a podium in front of the screen for the first couple of verses and chorus before coming down to the front of the stage. Like at the Grammys, Larry joined in on vocals during the "let me in the sound" passage.

Join us again in three days as U2 play the Echo Awards in Berlin, then a couple of days later when they appear on French TV show Le Grand Journal. Later next week, they return to the UK, and not just for the Friday morning appearance on the Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1. The Guardian has reported that U2 will tape a performance on Thursday the 26th for broadcast the next day on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross. A number of interviews with the band are also being broadcast on various BBC channels next week - check out their U2 minisite for full details.
