The show was which aired on Sirius XM in America was described by Variety as:

“None of the dazzling special effects that have become a hallmark of their big-room shows; just lights, a stage, and one of the greatest live rock bands in history at full throttle, roaring through songs from their nearly 40-year catalogue.”

This weekend marked the 20th anniversary of U2’s hit song ‘Beautiful Day’ winning three awards at the Grammys.

It won, ‘Record of the Year’, ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal’.

The late 90s were a difficult time for Bono and U2. The band’s elaborate PopMart tour disappointed many and record sales were poor in comparison to their earlier releases.

The release of ‘Beautiful Day’ and the album ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’ sparked the band’s renaissance in the early 2000s that was followed up with the release of ‘How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb’ in 2004.
