'This Is'

21 Jun 201370
At the Olympia Theatre in Dublin a wonderful crowd of Irish musicians celebrated the songs of Aslan and paid tribute to Christy Dignam.

All the way from Electric Lady Studios in New York City U2 took part with a performance of Aslan's 'This Is'. As MC Guggi put it afterwards, 'That wasn't too shabby'.

Ok, one more time my Gods are incredible in this awesome song. I like the lyrics, voice, music. Any chance of having this in a special download for fans or an album? Amazing all of you!

Love It!
So many things to love about this video. The band sounds great. Bono's voice is in great form. Dallas on acoustic guitar (what???) and they took the time out to help someone in need. This is why these guys are still around 30+ year later! Hopefully this song will show up on some compilation.

Finglas on top of the world
Being from Finglas and being a huge fan of U2 and Aslan (Finglas claims Bono and Aslan) I found this performance very moving. The lads didnt just go through the motions, there is real feeling and emotion and passion in the performance, particularly Bono's vocal. It would be a wonderful tribute to Christy to reale this with all proceeds going to help Christy and other cancer suffers. Well done lads, as we say in Dublin 'Yis done him proud'

Quality.
What a great performance. Bring on the new album, if they're gonna sound this good!

This is wonderful!
U2 created a great cover version of this song and it´s a pleasure to hear them play so powerfully. Once again, Bono shows such a wide variety of vocal possibilities by moving from deep tone colours to falsetto.

This is... AMAZING
Wow this cover is great keep up the good work!

I HOPE THIS IS THE NEW SOUND!
It sounds awesome! Bono's voice sounds so crisp and actually, he sounds young! He must have stopped smoking...LOL!
Scooter H
Wonderful
Beautifully done! Can't wait for more new U2! Who was that on the acoustic guitar at the beginning of the song?
LetMeInTheSound7
Incredible!
When I first saw this video (with no caption) I thought it was a new song! Regardless, it's perfectly written and sounds amazing!
