Europe Live Music Pop & Pop-Rock U2

POP: (Video) U2 – With Or Without You (Live at The BBC) (2017)

Ireland, Europe | December 2017

In an exclusive performance at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London, Adam, Bono, Edge and Larry play one the classic With Or Without You accompanied by an orchestra for U2 At The BBC – a special programme for BBC One. (Youtube Description)

It all began in 1976 when Larry Mullen pinned a ‘musicians wanted’ ad to the notice board at Dublin’s Temple Mount School: Drummer seeks musicians to form band. ‘So on Saturday 25th September 1976, ‘ recalls Larry. ‘This odd group of people convened in my kitchen in Artane. And that’s where it started.’

Adam Clayton had discovered rock’n’roll as a thirteen year old, buying his first acoustic guitar and then talking his parents into buying him a bass guitar. ‘It just sounded good to me. Deep and fat and satisfying.’

From the beginning, U2 were marked out by their passion. “A band before we could play” was how Bono put it in early interviews. Edge remembers reading UK music papers NME and Sounds every week and then hearing about this ‘wild kid called Paul Hewson.’ More on their official website.
