To mark the release of Songs of Surrender on March 17, Disney+ will premiere the documentary, Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, with Dave Letterman.
In the feature-length music docu-special, Academy award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville captures Dave Letterman on his first visit to Dublin to hang out with U2‘s Bono and The Edge in their hometown, experience Dublin, and join the two musicians for a concert performance.
The docufilm is “part concert movie, part travel adventure plus a whole lot of Bono and The Edge, with Dave’s humor throughout,” according to U2.
As well as the concert performance itself, the docu-special will focus on the relationship between Bono and The Edge and how it has developed across 45-plus years of close friendship.
“I fell in love with U2 and David Letterman at roughly the same time, somewhere around my sophomore year of high school,” said Neville. “That somehow decades later we would all come together in Ireland to make this show was an unlikely dream somehow come to life.”
“I had this incredible dream that I was in the magical city of Dublin with Bono, The Edge and David Letterman. And if it wasn’t for the fact that Morgan beautifully captured it all on film, I still wouldn’t believe it actually happened,” added producer Justin Wilkes.
The film was shot on location in New York, Los Angeles and Dublin, Ireland.
