U2 perform five nights in a row on ‘Letterman’

Because Bono and company don’t understand the concept of overkill, U2 will follow up its high profile gigs at the presidential inauguration and the Grammys with an unprecedented five nights of performances on the Late Show With David Letterman March 2-6. The gig coincides with the the release of the band’s 114th album No Line On The Horizon.
