They showed me around, introduced me to their musician friends, and performed some of their greatest songs in a small theater. It's a great tour. Get in touch with them ― I'm told there are still availabilities. I'm the luckiest man on the planet. (There are no availabilities)."

The Edge adds, "We seem to thrive doing something that's never been done before."
