Published Feb 13, 2009Maybe U2 are making some sort of meta commentary about their overblown celebrity status. Or maybe they just really love to make a big deal about things. Whatever the case, the Associated Press has announced that U2 will spend the entire first week of March as the musical guest on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman.
The week-long stint will take place from March 2 to March 6, which is the same week that their new album No Line on the Horizon comes out of hiding to reinvent rock'n'roll. This marks the first time a band has ever taken a week-long residence on Letterman's show, though Neil Young had a similar stint on Conan when his Prairie Wind album came out.
It's amazing that they can do all this and still find time to teach Spiderman how to sing.
