SiriusXM inks a new creative partnership with U2 to launch U2X Radio, which will include a dedicated SiriusXM channel with content available only to SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners. The announcement was made by U2, live from The Joshua Tree Tour stage at the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan, with a cut-in from frontman Bono to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM channel "Howard 100." A simultaneous stream by U2 on Facebook Live allowed fans around the world to hear the news as it happened.

U2X Radio will launch in 2020 with the band themselves taking to the airwaves and will feature music from U2's decades-long career, never before heard interviews & live concert recordings, favorites & surprises from the archive and band curated playlists sharing personal influences both new & old.

Bono said, "Generally when I open my mouth people prefer if I'm singing, but on U2X Radio, maybe they'll forgive me the odd interruption."

Adam Clayton added, "I'm not entirely sure what this is but what it isn't is an opportunity to hear some bass solos... U2 24/7. Welcome to the last 43 years of my life."

"U2 has unparalleled influence as musicians, social activists and global cultural icons. The band's ability to evolve has enabled it to create a large and diverse library of hit songs, as well as four-plus decades' worth of renowned live performances. U2X Radio and the offering on Pandora will provide listeners new access and insights into one of the world's most accomplished bands," said SiriusXM President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein.
