Protest about U2 being cut off AGAIN on NBC's SNL!

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I wrote to NBC because the station has cut U2's performance of Ultraviolet at the end of SNL. I said that I would not watch NBC until they reschedule the performance.

Here is the link: 

I will not stand for it. The lads deserve a lot more respect!

Let them know that you will not stand for it either.

just too bad they couldn't have cut out one of the skits so the band could do their third song to the end. At least that mumbling travel lady that kept saying "just kidding"

It is a question of respect and I will never mind hearing a U2 song a thousand times!it happens all the time, not just to U2 so there is no disrespect to them.  count yourself lucky you got to see a portion of the song at all, they could have only shown the first two.

NY is a union run city....even U2's tech crew can't touch their own equipment, or let alone mix the band. In order to push their cases around, the local union crew has to be the one doing it. As for the NY NBC studio, same thing applies....and it's the NBC's producer that calls the shots on these calls. U2 is well aware of these things...and that's why they give a mini concert to the lucky few that's in the studio for the filming.

Do you mean that this time they played it in full?!? Fantastic! I hope someone will upload it on YT (or is it viewable on their website, too?)
