Countdown to No Line

22 Feb 2009
It's a big, big week for U2.... and here's some of the highlights.

After the Echo show in Berlin last night the band went out for dinner with Michael Mittermeier, film director Wim Wenders and musician Herbert Gronemeyer.

Today the band arrived in Paris ahead of some French promotional work, including a live performance for Le Grand Journal on Canal Plus on Monday night.

They then head for London where there's lots going on in the next few days. If you're in the UK open your calendars.

First up Monday when new tracks from the album will be aired on Jo Whiley's Radio 1 show (10am-12.45pm) and on Edith Bowman's show (1-4pm).

On Tuesday tune in to Zane Lowe (7pm) when his guests include Bono and Edge.

Then switch off the radio and turn on the TV - at 10pm BBC2's The Culture Show has a special focus the new album - and later in the week, on Friday, there's an extended version of the show, with even more U2, starting at 11.30pm.

Friday also sees a special Radio 1 'Live Lounge' with U2 broadcasting from the BBC Theatre at Broadcasting House. Tune in between 10am and 12.45pm.

That same afternoon check out Chris Evans's drivetime show on Radio 2 - the band are in the studio with him.

And then finish the week with the TV again - they'll be performing two songs on the Jonathan Ross show which goes out on BBC1 at 10.30pm (That's just before the extended edition of The Culture Show (id we mention that ?) at 11.30pm - over on BBC2.

Got all that ?

Like we said - it's a big week!
