Wednesday 17 March - U2 Go Home: Live From Slane Castle - IRELAND 2001
'Every show is memorable for us but these four particularly so… It's exciting to be on the road again… Embracing all the wonder of the virtual road… And especially exciting to be joined by such a brilliant line-up of fellow travellers in Dermot Kennedy, Fontaines D.C., Carla Morrison and Feu! Chatterton.'
Wednesday's St Patrick's Day broadcast of 'U2 Go Home: Live From Slane Castle' celebrates the band's 2001 return to the famous Irish concert site on the banks of the River Boyne. And in an exclusive YouTube performance, Dermot Kennedy will open the show with a solo performance recorded last week in the desert outside Los Angeles.
