Elvis and his band, the Imposters, give a rousing musical welcome to Bono and The Edge in the chat show that has the feel of a live gig. There’s a lot of back-slapping but Bono does reveal what he learnt from Paul McCartney and there’s some cracking music, building up to a show-stopping cut-up of Pump It Up and Get On Your Boots.


The musician interviews Bono and the Edge of U2, who discuss the formation of their band, their experiences of working with producer Brian Eno and an ill-advised attempt to replicate the Beatles' recording methods. They also perform tracks from their back catalogue, including Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of, and collaborate with the host on a unique mash-up of Pump It Up and Get On Your Boots.
