Hulu has announced that the docu-special, “Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, with Dave Letterman,” will release on Hulu on Thursday, May 11, 2023. The special is also available to stream on Disney+.
U2’s Bono and the Edge invite Dave Letterman to Dublin for a live performance of their greatest songs, stripped back and reimagined. Directed by Morgan Neville, this docu-special is part concert movie, part travel adventure, and tells the story of one of the most remarkable friendships and creative partnerships in the history of rock and roll.
In the docu-special, from Disney Branded Television, Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville captures Dave Letterman on his first visit to Dublin to hang out with Bono and The Edge in their hometown, experience Dublin, and join the two U2 musicians for a concert performance unlike any they’ve done before.
From Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries, Neville’s Tremolo Productions, and Dave Letterman’s Worldwide Pants, “Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, with Dave Letterman” is part concert movie, part travel adventure plus a whole lot of Bono and The Edge, with Dave’s humor throughout.
As well as the concert performance itself, the docu-special will focus on the extraordinary relationship between Bono and The Edge and how it has developed across 45-plus years of close friendship to become one of the most remarkable songwriting partnerships in the history of rock ‘n’ roll, plus document Dublin through Dave’s eyes as he experiences Bono and The Edge’s home city for the first time.
