'Summer I was fearless
Now I speak into an answer phone
Like every falling leaf on the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone...'


Powerful performance of Every Breaking Wave for the 2014 MTV EMA in Glasgow last night.

As they report on the EMA site, 'Bono took to the stage with the band’s guitarist, The Edge, who played piano during the performance shortly after the show’s host, Nicki Minaj, accepted the award for Best Hip-Hop.
 'The band silenced the SSE Hydro with Bono showing off his incredible vocal ability dressed in a black leather jacket, jeans and wearing his signature sunglasses.'

New heights!
Beautiful song now fully realised - wow what a performance last night. I found it tremendously encouraging as it is the first time I have felt a recent song deliver the fully transformational journey that Streets and Bad did in the past. Great to hear Bono singing with open abandon, conviction and heart on sleeve again. I realise that is a strong statement but this song performed that way is just sublime. A real emotional gut twister with a proper climax delivered with an instrumental restraint and subtlety that can only come from age and experience. Very well done U2.

Better and Better!!
Bono's voice gets better and better, that is how it is done live and stripped back not a band on earth can match the pure magic when U2 play. Great song one of the best and can't wait to hear it live.

I miss the punkrockers
I really thougt, this album - and the liveshows that followed would be about guitars and punk. Instead it has been acoustic shows with piano and opera!? I'm not happy

Such a beautifully moving version this song could go on to be a real showstopper when played live in Arena's I would personally like them to keep the small orchestra for a new take on certain classic's!!!

Stellar performance with so much emotion. The song and the live performances are definitely sweeping me off my feet. Each one seems to get more emotional and more powerful. I cannot wait to see this live. Yet another song that will bring tears to my eyes when I am immersed in the concerts. Great job, guys!

I was lucky enough to have been there with a fellow zootop last night and the boys' performance was just incredible. The crowd were silenced in awe! I'm sure they won over many alleged non-fans in the audience!
