In support of the 30 Anniversary and subsequent tour of The Joshua Tree, U2 was on Jimmy Kimmel last night (5/23) and performed an amazing version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
“We want to play for you now a gospel song with a restless spirit,” Bono said in introducing the performance, which included the accompaniment of a choir planted in the audience. If this isn’t healing music, I don’t know what is.
They spoke to Jimmy about the Manchester tragedy as well. "They hate music. They hate women. They even hate little girls,” Bono said. “They hate everything that we love. And the worst of humanity was on view in Manchester last night. But so was the best, as people took perfect strangers into their houses and queued up for blood banks. Manchester has an undefeatable spirit, I can assure you.”
U2 will be at FedEx Field June 20th with the Lumineers. They will play the Joshua Tree album in its entirety.
