Best Live Act

Q (UK) - - Backstage... -

FROM THE WINNER’S PODIUM:

Edge: “I’ve been do­ing shows with this man [ Adam] for 40 years now. And one of these days I swear we’ll get it right. So there I was a cou­ple of nights back, out on the ter­race, glass of rosé in my hand, beau­ti­ful ocean in front of me, and this Bob Dy­lan lyric came into my head. It’s from Idiot Wind, ‘When you reach the top, you re­alise that you’re re­ally at the bot­tom’. I thought, ‘That is such bollocks.’ I love it! I know how lucky I am, we don’t take it for granted in our band, we re­ally try to make sure ev­ery show is a great show, and we’re grate­ful to any­one who has ever bought a ticket or an al­bum. Thank you.” Adam Clay­ton: “I just wanted to add it was an amazing tour, an emo­tional roller-coaster due to the events in Paris last November, and it was great to be able to per­form with Ea­gles Of Death Metal on­stage be­fore the end of the year.” (Above) U2’s Edge and Adam Clay­ton.
