U2Songs.com is currently reporting a rumor that U2 may be playing Saturday Night Live in December to promote the forthcoming Songs of Experience album. Although this rumor is far from confirmed (and likely won’t be confirmed by U2 or SNL for a few weeks), it is expected that U2 will play SNL’s December 2nd show.
U2 have played SNL in the past, but not since 2009 when they promoted their No Line on the Horizon album with performances of “Breathe” and “Moment of Surrender”.
It’s worth noting that if U2 plays SNL on December 2nd, it would nearly perfectly coincide with the currently rumored December 1 release of Songs of Experience. It’s expected that if they do indeed play SNL, they’ll be playing at least two songs off the new album, possibly “Get Out Of Your Own Way” and another song as “Get Out Of Your Own Way” is rumored to be the new single.
