Bruce Springsteen with Bono in Dublin: To Be Released
Original Story by Aaron J. Sams (2016-05-30)
Yesterday, May 29, 2016, Bono joined Bruce Springsteen on stage at Croke Park in Dublin Ireland. The two sang “Because the Night”. Both The Edge and Larry Mullen were in attendance at the show but only Bono joined The Boss on stage. This was the second stop of The River Tour at Croke Park.

We don’t usually cover live appearances here at u2songs, so why now? Because Bruce Springsteen is partnered with a service to deliver professional recordings of Bruce Springsteen concerts in a variety of formats. The concerts for the entire tour are available in CD as well as compressed and lossless downloads. The concerts are not available immediately, they take a bit of time to show up on the site for purchase, but each arrives with unique artwork as well. Currently the most recent available concert on the site is one from April 23 in Brooklyn New York, meaning it will probably be about a month from now that the Dublin show will be available.
The shows from the Europe 2016 tour are available for pre-order. Use caution when ordering if it is the Bono appearance that you are looking for as there are two shows from Croke Park that will be available. Bono only appeared at the second show on May 29th.
The direct link to pre-order the show Bono was present at is here. At this time it is expected that Bono’s performance will be a part of this set, but at this time it is not confirmed that it will be. The shows are available in the following formats:
- MP3 ($9.95)
- Lossless (CD-Quality) FLAC or ALAC ($12.95)
- 24 Bit High Resolution FLAC or ALAC ($19.95)
- Collectible 3-CD Set ($23.00 plus shipping)
Again, the Bono appearance has not yet been confirmed to be released as part of this set, although it is expected that it will. We will update the article when it has been confirmed that “Because the Night” will be released with Bono on vocals.
Update: NME has incorrectly reported that these releases will only be available for one week and then will no longer be available. This is incorrect. The company doing these releases has confirmed for us that there is one concert being released per week, but once released they will be available with no limitations as long as they are working with Springsteen and he wants to keep them up.
Until then you can watch a full performance of “Because the Night” shared by user David Corway on YouTube:
