U2 will perform on the first episode of the new series of TFI Friday.
The show airs this Friday at 8pm on Channel 4, with the band performing two tracks live on set. Steve Coogan, Saoirse Ronan, Take That and Slaves will also appear.
Host Chris Evans said: “It wouldn’t be the first episode of TFI without one of the biggest bands in the world, if not the biggest.
“We’re over the moon that we’ve got U2 on the show, they’re coming in specially, flying straight from a show in Antwerp and straight back to Cologne, making the time just for us, and we certainly plan to make the most of it.”
The new 10-part run of TFI Friday was commissioned by Channel 4’s commissioning editor for live & events, Tom Beck.
