U2 at Elvis Costello's Spectacle

@u2.com is reporting that Bono and Edge taped an edition of Spectacle, a music programme hosted by Elvis Costello, yesterday in Toronto. The programme is a mixture of interviews and live performances. There is no date yet for the programme to air, but it will be on the Sundance channel.

Elvis Costello performed some U2 songs with his band:

"Please"
"Dirty Day"
"Mysterious Ways"

Bono and Edge performed the following songs:

"Stay" (Bono and Edge alone)
"Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad" (Bono, with Elvis' rhythm section)
"Alison" (Elvis and his band with Bono and Edge)
"Stuck In A Moment" (whole ensemble)
"Pump It Up/Get On Your Boots" (whole ensemble)



Wow, sounds fantastic

Already a thread on this over on the tour forum. This is only the second time Two Shots has been played live, so that's pretty cool.

I thought this forum needs a thread, too, since it's not really related to the tour

I'm also very excited about Two shots.

I hope this encourages U2 to bring out Dirty Day again.

THAT'D BE SO DAMN GOOD.

Anyway, I hope to hear this at some point.

Maybe this will remind Bono and Edge that Dirty Day and Please exist.

Axver, I checked on U2gigs.com and saw some errors for the October 26, 2000 show. At this KROQ performance/interview, which I attended, during the interview portion, Bono did a short, impromptu version of Two Shots Of Happy which is not listed. Also during the interview, either Kevin or Bean made mention of Johnny Cash's recently released cover of One which prompted Bono to sing a portion of it mimicking Cash's voice.

And there's been a thread in the Lemonade Stand about the Elvis Costello show 'Spectacle' for quite some time now

Thanks ... will have to give it a listen to see if it's long enough to justify a full listing, especially the One portion. Either way, will add a note to the comments.

Don't know when it will air, but you can always check the Sundance Channel's website for dates & times.

Can't wait to see this, Elvis Costello would have done a great job at the U2 songs!

OMG OMG OMG!

I have never been so glad in my life that I get the Sundance Channel. I am swooning at that set list.

I watched the first few episodes of Spectacle and thought they were pretty entertaining. I kind of got out of the habit of watching it though.

I am really looking forward to this, too. Hopefully it doesn't take long to show up on CTV.

I sure hope so, it's a shame that Costello does play those songs and U2 just refuse to do it.
