U2 to Play Free Concert Commemorating Fall of Berlin Wall

Following their free concert performance streamed on YouTube this past Sunday, Irish rockers U2 (guitar tab) will now play a free concert in Berlin to help the city celebrate 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Not surprisingly, the show sold out immediately.

According to the band's web site, they will perform in front of the Brandenburg Gate on November 5, as part of the 16th MTV Europe Music Awards, and that performance will be beamed by satellite into Berlin's O2 World arena, where the awards ceremony will be held that night.

The Berlin wall fell November 9, 1989, ending almost 30 years of separation between east and west.
