Irish Idols

American Idol may not be the biggest show here in the UK, but Stateside it;s massive. Regularly raking in 30million viewers. The final of the current series comes to a close tomorrow (May 25) and arguably the biggest touring band in the World, U2 are to make an appearance on it.

Details of what the Irish band will do are unclear (perform a couple of songs, maybe?) but we know that only Bono & The Edge will be taking part. Talking to Billboard U2’s manger Paul McGuinness didn’t give much away apart from confirmation that they are to perform, are currently in rehearsals and will be joined by cast members from Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark – the new musical which U2 scored.

U2 headline Glastonbury Festival on the weekend of 24-26 June.
