Disney announces new U2 documentary

By | Published on Monday 16 January 2023


Disney+ has announced a new U2 documentary in which viewers will see broadcaster David Letterman travel to Dublin for the first time to hang out with Bono and The Edge. And why not? Letterman will experience the Irish capital and “join the two U2 musicians for a concert performance unlike any they’ve done before”.

Says Ayo Davis, President of Disney Branded Television: “Bono and The Edge are the force behind one of the most prolific and influential acts in the history of rock and roll, and we are honoured to bring this truly intimate look at their beginnings, friendship, and creative process to a global audience on Disney+”.

Meanwhile, Letterman adds in a statement: “Recently, I won a radio contest. Winner gets to visit Dublin with Bono and The Edge (radio contest part not true, but I feel like a winner). They showed me around, introduced me to their musician friends, and performed some of their greatest songs in a small theatre. It’s a great tour. Get in touch with them – I’m told there are still availabilities. I’m the luckiest man on the planet. (There are no availabilities)”.

‘Bono & The Edge: A Sort Of Homecoming, With Dave Letterman’ will premiere on the Disney+ platform on 17 Mar, which is also St Patricks Day and the release date for U2’s recently announced ‘Songs Of Surrender’ album on which they rework 40 tracks from their oeuvre.
