SANTA MONICA, CA. (Top40 Charts/ Interscope Records) - In celebration of the release of No Line On The Horizon, Interscope recording artist U2 will participate in an unprecedented radio broadcast event produced by FMQB Productions, U2 3 Nights Live which places the band in three cities for three mutually exclusive radio broadcasts for three consecutive nights.
Beginning in Los Angeles on Monday, March 9th, the broadcast will feature an inside look at the making of No Line On The Horizon. The band will play selections from the album and discuss the recording process, concepts and ideas behind the new album. The LA event will be hosted by Shirley Manson, the lead vocalist of Garbage and co-star of the Fox series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
On Tuesday, March 10th, the band travels to Chicago for part two of the broadcast series. Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen, Jr. and Adam Clayton will host a radio takeover hour, along with Ms. Manson, as the band will broadcast a one hour live show as guest deejays.
The final night of the radio extravaganza will find the band at a historic theater in Boston for a live performance and audience Q&A in a very intimate setting on Wednesday, March 11th.
All three shows have a broadcast start time of 9:00 p.m., EST.
