ATTN: British fans...theres a U2 weekend on Channel 4 from tomorrow till Sunday!!!

Hi all!

Thought Id let you know that there will be a U2 weekend on Channel 4.....starting with Slane show being shown tomorrow from 00.35am till 1.40am and then again for PopMart Mexico on Saturday 9th November at midnight till 1.05am and finally the Zoo TV show from Sydney on Sunday 10th November from 00.45am till 1.50am!

Below is copied from Channel 4 website:


U2 WEEKEND LISTINGS


Channel 4 are hosting a special U2 weekend on Friday November 8th with three of their most prolific live perfromances. Slane Castle, Mexico City and Sydney play venue hosts to these three monumental concerts, all on Channel 4 from Friday through Sunday. Below you'll find the all dates, times and details you need...

FRIDAY 08th NOVEMBER

12.35am U2 WEEKEND: LIVE AT SLANE CASTLE

Kicking off Channel 4's U2 Weekend is this very special U2 performance, recorded last year at Slane Castle, County Meath. The band became the first in history to play a second date at the castle, the first time being back in 1981 when they supported Thin Lizzy. All 80,000 tickets sold out in 94 minutes as fans rushed to see one of the best live bands in the world perform as part of their 'Elevation 2001 Tour'. Showing for the first time in the UK, Channel 4 gives viewers the opportunity to see the band perform many of their classic tracks including Beautiful Day, New Years Day, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Angel of Harlem and One. U2 Weekend continues tomorrow and Sunday with PopMart Live recorded in Mexico City and Zoo TV Live from Sydney.

SATURDAY 09th NOVEMBER

12:00am U2 WEEKEND: POPMART LIVE FROM MEXICO CITY

In 1997 U2 released their album Pop , and with it staged their biggest and most ambitious stage show to date, the Popmart tour. Despite using a 55 foot tall, 170 foot wide video screen, giant lemons and elaborate effects the band managed to maintain their emotionally compelling message to stadium-size audiences. This live performance sees the band play a career-spanning set which includes classics such as Discotheque , Until the End of the World , Mysterious Ways and Desire.

SUNDAY 10th NOVEMBER

12:45am U2 WEEKEND: ZOO TV LIVE FROM SYDNEY

With the arrival of U2's groundbreaking album Achtung Baby came a new kind of live show. The Zoo TV Live experience was widely lauded as the Sgt Pepper of rock tours, using the latest in live technology and circumnavigating the globe twice in almost two years. This live performance, recorded in Sydney in December 1993, captures the band during this new stage of innovation, as they unleash their latest material to an audience of 45,000, playing tracks such as Zoo Station , The Fly , Even Better Than the Real Thing , Love Is Blindness and Lemon.
