U2 at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Tonight, U2 appeared at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Early in the show, Bono appeared in a pre-recorded video discussing and giving credit to the success of Beyonce Knowles. U2 were nominated as the top Duo/Group, but lost out to the Black Eyed Peas.

Later, will.i.am introduced a special tribute to U2, which featured footage from the 360° Tour. Overlaying the video footage, the band members, Paul McGuinness, and various tour personnel explained the tour's conception, while statistics about the tour and several of the concert locations flashed along the bottom of the screen. Following the video, U2 were presented with a special award as the Top Touring Artist and thanked the production crew for their work over the last two years. On a humourous note, The Edge was censored when he took his turn at the microphone.

The band did not perform any songs as part of this appearance.
