Spectacle With Elvis Costello
'SPECTACLE: ELVIS COSTELLO WITH ' features one-on-one conversations with legendary performers and notable newcomers and the guest don't just talk, they also sing.'

Bono and Edge are guests for the first episode in the second series tonight which 'allows some of the most interesting and influential artists and personalities a rare opportunity to reflect on their work and jam with Elvis'.

Sounds good... particularly as we hear that Bono and Edge get to join Elvis and The Imposters to perform 'Alison' and 'Pump It Up'.

Programme details.

Happy, indeed
Every time I watch U2, whether live or on TV, performing or in interview, I have a big smile on my face. It's elusive to me to understand exactly why this is. Obviously great music, but also a humility that is reassuring and a sense of them being fun people to hang out with over a pint. Genuine might be the word I seek. Maybe someday I'll get the chance, but for now, I just keep buying concert tickets (360 tour 4 times, am I pathetic?) and hoping that I'll run into them in a local bar after the show where we can chit chat like they did with Elvis and bask in the afterglow of a great show and extend that smile on my face for a couple hours longer. Also a big Frank fan and love the song Bono, wish you two could have sung it together while he was still with us.

Great Episode
This was a great show with humerous stories. It was worth watching and Stay (faraway, so close)was a very beautiful outstanding performance.

The essence of U2
The U2 backstory never grows old - from uncertain beginnings to enduring greatness, all the while infused with humility and humor. The spark of the divine continues to shine on and through U2. Four shots of happy.

Loved seeing/hearing Elvis and the boys put new spins on U2 songs. The passion, the passion... The respect each artist gave the other was so evident. Bravo!

Loved it! - a U2 song I've never heard b
"Two Shots of Happy, one Shot of Sad", a song written for Sinatra. I think Sinatra never did this one because he didn't think he could pull it off like Bono. Pure speculation, and just my thoughts personally.

Great Show!
It was great to hear and see something different and new!! Thanks Elvis, bono and the Edge!!

Enjoyable Interview
I caught the show on demand and it was really great show and it's always fun to see the band in an interview situation, they're always entertaining. I particularly enjoyed Bono singing "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad"...fantastic!

Caught it Before Bed...
I was just getting ready for bed when my parents called into the bathroom "Bono and The Edge are on TV!" I jumped up, still with toothpast in my mouth, and watched the show. It sounded very much like a classic U2 interview. Talking about writing songs, Edge and Bono expressed their funny way of writing them, the disorginization of it all. Sounded like Bono in Conversation. But my main complaint with the show is about the songs. Elvis totally ruined 'Stuck in a Moment' with his vocals, and 'Stay' was only performed accoustically. I liked the album's version better. The only song that was really quite good was "One shot of Happy'. But then they totally blew the credits with the blend of 'Pump it Up' and "Get on Your Boots'. Sorry, but the show just wasn't all that good.

Just Clipped It
Couldn't catch a view live but just viewed a clip or two on the web of the chat... Yummy Irish/Welsh draw... YES U2 is a universal party fav for all occasions : ).

Saw it on Cox on Demand
and it was worth checking out. Enjoyed the "covers" by Elvis Costello's band. Really liked the acoustic number and Bono's tribute to Sinatra. Thanks for a great show in Vancouver from your San Diego fans.

Stay, Two Shots of Happy!!!
Great show, with a great host, and guests. Thanks for playing 2 of my all time favorites, and rarities, "Stay" and "Two Shots of Happy, one Shot of Sad", along with some other nice surprises.
