It's on U2.com now:

U2 will play at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles next month.


The 51st annual Grammy Awards take place on February 8th and there's plenty of other great acts lined up including Kid Rock, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Rihanna, Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney, Radiohead and Jay-Z.

It will air on CBS from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). More here.

The band have already confirmed they'll be performing the new single ‘Get On Your Boots’ at the UK's BRIT Awards at London's Earls Court, ten days later on Wednesday 18 February. And a few days after that they'll be in Berlin to play at Germany's ECHO Awards

If the #116 was right on airplay then downloads must really count for a large percentage of the position on the hot 100.

Number 37 is a great debut. I don't think anyone should say a top 40 hit is dissapointing at all.

I think #37, even if the song drops some from here on, is a solid debut.

First, it gives U2 another Top 40 hit in the U.S. It should be pointed out that "Pride", "Even Better Than...", "Who's Gonna Ride..." and "Vertigo" also only charted in the 30's. Songs like "Last Night on Earth", "Sometimes...", "Stuck...", "All I Want Is You", "When Love Comes To Town", "Lemon", "Gloria", "The Fly", "Stay" and "New Year's Day" didn't even make it to the Top 40.

Furthermore, The Killers' latest, "Human", has spent 17 weeks on the Hot 100. Its highest position was only #32. So if the band that wants to replace U2 has a song whose peak is just five spots higher, I think this says it all. Rock music is still fighting an uphill battle. Some songs from Fallout Boy or Coldplay will break through, but even those songs often have some serious "help" (for example, one Top 10 hit from Fallout Boy was also used in a commercial).

Had U2 done another "Vertigo" type of song - one with a big catchy hook that was also featured in a popular commercial - they too probably would have charted in the top 10 (by selling many more downloads). But which is ultimately better - a song that charts in the Top 40 based on the U2 name alone, or one that's a huge hit because of commercials? I really like "Vertigo", but if U2 need to make songs like "My Life Would Suck Without You" in order to be #1, I'll happily take #37.

Any song that cracks the Top 40 in the U.S., is #1 on the Triple A charts and #8 on the Modern Rock charts and even hits #19 on the dance charts (and we haven't even had a remix yet - so this same song is #1 on the alternative charts and #19 on the dance charts!!), is NOT a flop.

Granted, maybe this is the song's peak. So be it. Some of U2's biggest and best loved songs either weren't released as singles ("Bad" and "Until the End...") or never made the Top 40.

But I guess, if you're Perez Hilton, it's #1 or nothing.

I was pretty surprised to see it at 37. Vertigo only made it to 31, and it had all the promotion from the Ipod commercial. Pretty cool!

Well, a frillion more people bought Clarkson's song than GOYB. I think it's just a sales comparison.

True, but Kelly has had alot more promotion for the single than U2. Aside from us diehards, many don't have a clue about a new U2 song. Its starting to get out there to people tho. Feb is going to the be the hit it hard month for the band. I'd expect a SNL appearance and others to help push the song. Plus the offical download for the single is out in a couple weeks. Right now Boots is doing pretty good.

37... that's surprisingly high, considering that Vertigo peaked at 31. Events of the next week will probably drag it forward.
