U2 on Saturday Night Live - Repeat

Comedy Central is showing the episode with U2/Val Kilmer this Sunday 12/15 at 6:30PM ET/ 5:30PM CT.

I really liked their performance on this show, Beautiful Day & Elevation.

Wow, great news! I missed the show the first time around. I was wondering when it would be repeated.

The trouble is, CC usually edits the SNL reruns from 90 min down to an hour. I saw the U2 episode before on CC and one of the songs, I think Elevation, gets cut out.

I hadn't seen this episode before, so I'm definitely planning on watching it on Sunday.

I know sometimes the musicial guests get involved in the skits-did U2 get involved in any of the skits on this episode?

I find it hard to believe that this appearance on SNL was their first one ever.

So it's so old it made it to Comedy central? Hard to believe it's been so long. Great performance.

Yeah, the episode is condensed, and Elevation gets cut out ("come on baby...light my fire!"). Beautiful Day is great of course, but Elevation was just smokin!

They cut out Elevation? What a bunch of nuts! That was a classic musical performance on SNL- I don't think anyone's ever jumped off the stage and run around in the audience before. And it was pretty funny...and the station is Comedy Central...doesn't that make sense? Maybe NBC will play it in the next couple of weeks since it was a December episode.

Um...okay.

I turned on Comedy Central at 5:30 pm...and it wasn't on.

Man, first the "A Night With" show doesn't air and now this.

And I would blame it on my T.V. thing screwing up when it tells what's showing (since it's done that before), but everything else I've seen has said this one was gonna air, too, so...

Grrr.

I don't know what happened out here on the left coast, but it wasn't on when they said it would be on. We got a Luke Perry-hosted episode instead.

Although on the plus side, I got to see the "Sassy!" sketch again. I miss Phil Hartman.

No, they didn't take part in any of the sketches. And yes, Elevation SMOKED. It was the anniversary of John Lennon's murder, and when our hero walked into the audience singing "all you need is love" during the song, the crowd went absolutely nuts. It's the best SNL musical performance I've ever seen.

Dude!

That sounds incredibly cool!

Why the hell would Comedy Central want to cut that performance out?

Actually, Bono didn't go into the crowd singing all you need is love - he sang a bit of Instant Karma ("we all shine on, like the moon, the stars and the sun"). He did sing a few lines from All You Need Is Love at the end of Beautiful Day, though.

And yes, Elevation SMOKED - that alone was easily the best SNL musical performance I've seen. I still get a surge of adrenaline every time I listen to Bono take it to another level.

I couldn't find the tape to check my facts (and faulty memory), thanks for setting me straight. Seeing that performance turned my seven year old nephew into a real fan!

*listening to the mp3 now out of nostalgia...*

I could be totally off, but maybe they cut it because of copyright issues? He just totally busted out with a John Lennon song and tacked on "Come on baby...light my fire." He's well-known for borrowing other people's lyrics, but maybe Comedy Central didn't want to deal with it.



The performance turned my brother into a real fan...he stopped telling me three times a day that they rhymed words in Elevation for the sake of rhyming. He was like, "Oh, they rock and that song is really cool," and I was like, "Duh."
