'Every breaking wave on the shore
Tells the next one there’ll be one more
And every gambler knows that to lose
Is what you’re really there for...'

Through October and November, the band were touring radio and TV studios in Europe, performing stripped back versions of songs from the new album.

None went down better than Every Breaking Wave, accompanied by a string quintet. This is what it was like in Glasgow  at the MTV European Music Awards.



(The band were also at the MTV Awards in 2009, in Berlin, performing with Jay-Z (special to subscribers) and back in 2001, in New York, when they paid tribute to The Ramones.)

I'm gettin tired of this "acoustic" song
But I must accept that this version was stunning. You stole some tears from my eyes that night, guys...
