U2 performed their new single ‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’ live on US TV’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon last night (Thursday, September 7).

This week saw U2 return with new single ‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’ from forthcoming album ‘Songs Of Experience’, which will be released on December 1.

As well as delivering the live TV debut of their new single, U2 also performed ‘Joshua Tree’ track ‘Bullet The Blue Sky’. Watch both performances below.

Speaking in an interview with host Jimmy Fallon on the show, Bono described their new single as “punk-Motown” and “punk Supremes”, adding: “It’s defiant joy, we call it, It’s a love song to my Mrs, and in these difficult times it’s important to tell your loved ones how you feel.”

The Edge added: “I think, maybe even more important than ever in these times, it’s important to have that joy because that’s the best response.”

U2’s new album is the follow-up and companion release to 2014’s ‘Songs Of Innocence‘. Despite recent reports, Royal Blood won’t appear on the record.

The band have been teasing fans of its release by sending them mysterious letters in the post, before unveiling surprise comeback track ‘The Blackout’ in August.

Speaking to the New York Times about the band’s new record, The Edge said they wanted the album “to be played by people in a bar in 25 years”.

Brighton Centre
Kings Rd
Brighton,  BN1 2GR Map

VegfestUK returns to the South Coast after 9 fabulous years at one of the nation’s biggest concentrations of vegan food and products in Brighton. In 2018, there will be a slight makeover of featured areas to go along with the usual vibrant mix of stalls and culinary delights, and we are so excited to introduce a whole new world of vegan delights to everybody looking for more vegan options at our first event of 2018 at Brighton.

NEW featured areas will include The Veganuary reunion party on the Sunday, with Veganuary participants, staff, ambassadors, friends of the campaign involved – the party will be open to attendees of Brighton Vegfest too.

Returning to the Saturday part of the show is The FxEctive Factor competition with a range of talented vegan musicians and activists pitting their wits against each other in the spirit of showcasing the unique talents we’ve got in the UK vegan community right now.

Also making their debuts at VegfestUK Brighton 2018 are a trio of newly themed talks rooms, namely The Vegan Academy, with a diverse range of topics on veganism for everyone at various stages of their journeys towards veganism, followed by a couple of talks rooms on the benefits of Plant-Based Diets, one focused on Optimum Performance and the other focused on Optimum Health.

The Vegan Comedy Festival, which was introduced back in 2015 when VegfestUK made its first return to the modern, sleek and spacious Brighton Centre, will once again be a 2-day festival featuring some of the most original vegan comedians in the country.

Other exciting areas not to be missed include the Cookery Demos, the Mature Zone, the Kids Area, the Stage, plus more TBA.

Of course, don’t miss the huge collection of around 230 stalls packed full of some of the best vegan products in the market, on top of 19 caterers serving a mouthwatering vegan menu at what is expected to be a very busy show.

Advance tickets will cost £7 per day and £10 for the whole weekend, plus booking fees, whilst tickets on the door will cost £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Kids under 16 get free entry as long as they are accompanied by adults. Advance tickets will be available to buy in January 2018.
