Remarks:

U2 performed tonight in Trafalgar Square in front of 7,000 people in conjunction with their appearance on the 2017 MTV EMA Awards. New single “Get Out of Your Own Way” was performed for the very first time live as well as twice, the second time for a live music video shoot. Prior to the first version of “Get Out of Your Own Way”, Bono read a piece of Czeslaw Milosz’s poem “Gift” (this performance of the song ended up being aired live during the MTV EMA Awards on Sunday). For the second version of “Get Out of Your Own Way”, protest signs were distributed to the audience members for the music video. Bono stated that the song was a “protest against yourself” but later joked that “if you want to protest us, that’s cool.” At the end of the song, Bono took a megaphone and shouted out Kendrick Lamar’s rap lyrics from the studio version of the song.
