VIDEO: U2 ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE ON SUNDAY

posted by @lisaontheradio -


U2 went acoustic on a rooftop for an appearance Sunday on the Brazilian TV show Fant├ístico.

You can find their performance of "Ordinary Love," the band's Oscar-nominated song from the 2013 movie Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom, on YouTube. Surprisingly, they didn't perform anything from the upcoming Songs of Experience.

Bono and Adam Clayton also sat for an interview for the show, discussing Songs of Experience and their current Joshua Tree tour. Bono explained that the new album is a response to "both a political apocalypse and a personal one... You'll see when it comes out that a lot of the songs are letters, both to our audience and to my sons and daughters, [and] there's a letter to America called "American Soul." And Bono says they will never play The Joshua Tree album in its entirety again after this tour ends.

They also fielded some political and cultural questions about both Brazil and the U.S. 

Bono was asked if he would sit down with President Donald Trump to push the causes he believes in the way he had with former President George W. Bush. He replied that "we might have to draw the line with Donald Trump." 

He noted that he had thought they could work with Bush -- and they did -- but he doesn't "believe a word that comes out of [Trump's] mouth" and took it personally how Trump has spoken about dealing with protesters.
