U2 Perform 9 Song Set For MTV's Pre-EMA Party

@U2, November 11, 2017

U2 performed to 7,000 people in London's Trafalgar Square as part of MTV Europe's Pre-EMA Party to celebrate the awards ceremony on Sunday night. The 2017 Global Icon Award winners treated the crowd to a 45-minute greatest hits style set with two new Songs Of Experience tracks in the middle: "Get Out Of Your Own Way" and "You're The Best Thing About Me." The set ended with a reprise of "Get Out Of Your Own Way" complete with a variety of protest signs given to the audience for the MTV cameras to film. Some signs included ZooTV phrases like "Everything You Know Is Wrong," "Call Your Mother," and "Every Artist Is A Cannibal."

The set began with "Sunday Bloody Sunday." During it, Bono said, "What do we got for Manchester? What do you got for Mogadishu? What do you got for Myanmar? A message of hope...a message of hope." Earlier today, U2 released a statement regarding Myanmar's refugee crisis with the Rohingya people and Aung San Suu Kyi's silence on it; encouraging fans to support  Amnesty International's action to stop the ethnic cleansing in the region.

Portions of tonight's Pre-EMA party will be part of the MTV EMA broadcast tomorrow, Nov. 12. The awards show will broadcast live at 8pm (local) in London and across Europe. It will air in the US and Canada live on MTV starting at 3pm Eastern.
