|canadanne||09:46 pm - Who's got tickets?|
So... anyone going to London or Glasgow? I am doing London on 29th and 30th October. Never been to the O2 before - hope it's a better venue than Earls Court was!

|canadanne||11:44 pm - Latest TV & radio appearances|
If you missed U2 on The Graham Norton Show this evening, it's repeated on Monday night / early Tuesday morning from 00:20am to 01:05am. It's also up on iPlayer.
The Absolute Radio interview with Bono & Edge was (partially) broadcast this morning, and can be heard in this podcast at the 36 minute mark. It's well worth a listen, very funny and almost completely free of Bono's usual repetitive soundbites (though he does try to sneak in the milk bottle analogy again). There's meant to be a half-hour recording of the full interview coming soon, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet.
Yesterday, Bono & Edge were also interviewed by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music, which you can listen to here.
One more appearance has been announced - Zane Lowe will be talking to the band on his Radio 1 show (7-9pm) on Monday evening. Don't forget they are also playing Later With Jools Holland next week! Anyone else struggling to keep up with all this?!

|canadanne||10:34 pm - Radio promo|
Christian O'Connell interviewed Bono & Edge for his breakfast show on Absolute Radio. It will be broadcast this Friday!
If you missed this evening's live session on Radio 2, it should soon be available here. :)

|canadanne||06:28 pm - Another Absolute Radio interview?|
Hmm, I caught something on Absolute Radio earlier about an upcoming live interview with Bono and The Edge (on the breakfast show I think?), but I missed what day they said, and I can't find any mention of it online! Does anyone know?

Lots of promo appearances coming up on UK radio and TV:
Wednesday 15th October - U2 at Maida Vale, Radio 2
Jo Whiley hosts a very special evening in at Maida Vale with U2. They will be playing 3 live tracks from the new album & an old classic. Plus spinning some of their favourite tunes. (8pm to 10pm)
Friday 17th October - The Graham Norton Show, BBC1
Irish mega-band U2 also grace the sofa after performing new single The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone). (10:35pm to 11:20pm)

Friday 24th October - Later... With Jools Jolland, BBC2
Extended edition of Tuesday night's show. (11:35pm to 00:35am)
Surprised Graham Norton agreed to have them on his show - he's been slagging them off ever since the '90s! Will be interesting to see if he pretends to be impressed. :P
