12th January 2009

The BPI, the UK record labels’ body, today announced the exciting news
that the mighty U2, one of the world’s biggest bands, will perform
their brand new single ‘Get On Your Boots’ live at The BRIT Awards 2009
with MasterCard. This highly anticipated annual event takes place on
Wednesday 18 February at London’s Earls Court.

This year’s BRIT Awards, the premiere event in the British music
calendar, is shaping up to be one of the strongest yet, with U2
confirmed, Pet Shop Boys being honoured with the Outstanding
Contribution to Music Award and further intriguing live performances to
be announced over the coming weeks. The show will be a spectacular
night of great music, featuring and honouring the hottest music talent
and thrilling the eleven thousand audience at Earls Court, as well as
making it a must tune-in for the millions watching The BRITs live on

Ged Doherty, Chairman of The BRITs Committee said, “We’re thrilled to
be able to confirm that U2 have chosen The BRITs for their first global
TV performance on their new album. Their addition to the line-up for
this year’s show makes it possibly the best we have ever had. This
cements The BRITs as one of the biggest TV events in the world.”

Formed in 1976, U2 consists of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry
Mullen Jnr. Over their three-decade career the band have sold over 140
million albums worldwide – with multiple gold, platinum and diamond
certifications, and have amassed more awards than any other band. They
have been awarded seven coveted BRIT Awards including five acclaimed
Best International Group awards, Best Live Act and the Outstanding
Contribution to Music Award in 2001.

With several chart topping albums under their belt, U2 will release
their forthcoming album ‘No Line on the Horizon’ – tipped as their best
to date – this spring and join the prestigious line up at The BRIT
Awards 2009 with MasterCard ceremony at Earls Court, London on
Wednesday 18 February.

The BRITs Nominations Launch takes place at London’s Roundhouse on 20 January 2009.
