Watch Bono Perform New Version of “With or Without You” on Colbert

1 min read

Bono was the special guest on yesterday’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The U2 frontperson joined Colbert to promote his new memoir, Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story, which arrived on November 1. As the episode’s sole guest, he discussed a range of topics including the Beatles documentary Get Back, the future of America (a country he believes does not yet exist), and the attack on Paul Pelosi. “America’s on its way,” he concluded. “I’m just so excited to see where you take it.” To close the show, he played a new version of “With or Without You” featuring spoken-word segments from the memoir. Watch it all happen below.

U2’s last studio album, Songs of Experience, was released in 2017. In January, the band paid tribute to the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday with an acoustic version of their 1983 song “Sunday Bloody Sunday.” Bono later joined the Edge to perform a surprise set at a bomb shelter in Kyiv in a gesture of solidarity with the Ukrainian people.

See why U2’s 1991 album Achtung Baby was included on Pitchfork’s list of “The 150 Best Albums of the 1990s.”
