U2 to play free show to mark fall of Berlin Wall

No clue if this has been posted already or if this is the right forum but WOW!

U2 to play free show to mark fall of Berlin Wall


BERLIN — Achtung, baby: U2 will play a free concert in Berlin to help the city celebrate 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Music network MTV said the Irish rockers will perform in front of the Brandenburg Gate on Nov. 5 during the MTV Europe Music Awards

The show will be beamed into the awards ceremony at Berlin's O2 World arena.

U2 manager Paul McGuinness said it would be exciting to be in Berlin, "20 years almost to the day since the wall came down."

The wall fell Nov. 9, 1989, ending almost 30 years of separation between east and west.

U2's 1991 album "Achtung Baby" was partly inspired by the band's stay in the city.

Tickets for the show are available through the U2.com > Welcome and MTV Europe Music Awards 2009 :: 05.11.09 :: Berlin Web sites from 0800 GMT (4 a.m. EDT) Wednesday.

i'm confused. are they playing a full show or just one song during the MTV Awards. hopefully this is just a short trip and the rumors that they will be in Vancouver finishing SOA are still true.

They will play for around 20 mins. Part of it will be beamed into the awards ceremony at the O2.

Great momentum, almost 20 years after the wall fell down. And great momentum to stimulate the germans in buying tickets for Hannover,Munich,Frankfurt...jesus, seems that those germans don't know what is real music... :-)
