Late Night FDL: Sunday Bloody Sunday
U2 played for a small crowd at The Roxy…
U2 played a free show for 500 fans at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday and videos from the show have been posted online. The rare club date landed in the middle of the group’s 5-night residency at The Forum as part of their “Innocence + Experience” tour.
The 12-song set featured a mix of classic tracks and four tunes from the band’s 1980 debut, “Boy.” Tickets were distributed free by radio station KROQ; U2 were scheduled to perform at the station’s “Almost Acoustic Christmas” last fall but had to cancel following Bono’s bicycle accident in New York.
Among the celebrities spotted at the show, according to various media reports, were Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Smith, and more.
Tomorrow nite I’ll back in the saddle…!
