U2 eXPERIENCE Live in Berlin.

692 123816 640

In 2018 the band took 'Songs of Experience' on the road across North America and Europe.

It was a tour that was widely praised but in the midst of the growing refugee crisis and the rise of extremist politics in Europe, the final night in particular, at Berlin's Mercedez-Benz Arena last November, was lauded as a show for this moment in time.

As Bono's devilish alter-ego Macphisto, puts it: "Remember, Berlin, whenever you see a journalist being crushed, or children being separated from their parents, whenever the lost or the lonely are washed up on borders that are closed... you will find me.'

With a new year beginning, the band have curated a special 75 minute edition of the two hour long performance, which will air as a concert special on broadcast networks as 2020 arrives.  At the end of a tumultous and divisive year in many countries, the word from early screenings is that this is a show to bring people together.  And in the UK, for the first time ever for a concert film, Sky Arts and Sky One will air the show at the same time, a double-channel take over.  

As well as 'New Year's Day', 'City of Blinding Lights', 'Pride (In The Name of Love)' and 'One', the show features a series of stand out tracks featured from Songs of Experience including You're The Best Thing About Me.' , 'Summer of Love', 'Get Out Of Your Own Way',  'Love Is Bigger Than Anything In It's Way' and '(13) There Is A Light'...

Here's a list of the countries, dates and timings that we have so far.

UPDATE :  US viewers can catch the show on DirecTV just after midnight on New Year's Day. (Check listings for details.)

If you hear of other broadcasts in other territories, please add them in the comments below. 

By the way, while this is the 75 minute cut, early in 2020 we'll have news on the release of the entire show... watch this space.
