Do you think they will be in all day on Radio 1 or just for the live lounge?

This was the first thing I thought of as well. I hope it's something cool. Isn't the song that artists cover on the Live Lounge usually a track that is successful on the charts at the moment? Whatever it is, it'll probably be something that will be out of U2's comfort zone. Should be fun.

bet this means they will be on Jonathan Ross as well on Friday 27th as the studios are very close to each other as they are both BBC

First ticket-related stress on the horizon!

Anybody have any idea roughly how many tickets are made available for this sort of thing? I had a quick look but couldn't see any numbers

Is there a live stream of this show on the BBC site?

I will take this day (U2 day ) off, because I don't think I can handle all the excitement AND my work.

Yeah, that's what I thought, thanks. This will probably change a little bit in two weeks but here's the Radio 1 A-list playlist right now:

Quote:
* Lily Allen - The Fear

* Beyonce - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)

* Chase & Status feat Kano - Against All Odds

* Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You

* Alesha Dixon - Breathe Slow

* Eminem, Dr Dre & 50 Cent - Crack a Bottle

* The Killers - Spaceman

* Lady Gaga Feat Colby O'Donis - Just Dance

* MGMT - Time To Pretend

* N-Dubz - Strong Again

* Pink - Sober

* The Prodigy - Omen

* Pussycat Dolls feat Missy Elliot - Whatcha Think About That

* Shontelle - T-Shirt

* Britney Spears - Circus

* Take That - Up All Night

* Tinchy Stryder Feat Taio Cruz - Take Me Back

* The Ting Tings - We Walk

* U2 - Get On Your Boots
They should totally fucking cover "My Life Would Suck Without You"

Shit would be so hot.

The BBC site says that a number of listeners will be able to watch the session live -more details to come on Jo Whiley's show on the 23 Feb.
I thought Jonathan Ross's show was normally filmed on a Thursday but maybe they'll do that one as well. What do you think the chances are they'll do a mini concert outside the BBC like Coldplay did last summer?

This is brilliant news. If an artist plays an interesting cover it gets tons of exposure and potential credibility. Really hope they do Jonathan Ross as well.

I remember U2 doing one outside the BBC centre for HTDAAB plus they played a few tracks from ATYCLB live in the studio when that album came out.

Anyone remember?

I could see them covering Beyonce to be honest. Jay-Z and Beyonce are good friends of Bono
