Bono & the Edge: A Sort of Homecoming With Dave Letterman is hitting Disney+ on March 17, and the full trailer for the special is finally out.

The full trailer expands on the initial teaser trailer first released in January. In the new trailer, the absence of bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. is explained. Bono says, “While Larry was injured and Adam was off making an art film, Edge and I asked David Letterman to Dublin to talk about our songs.”

The trailer shows Bono, The Edge and Letterman out and about in Dublin. Additionally, the Disney+ special also features the U2 singer and guitarist in an intimate in-the-round setting for a performance.

In a press release statement, Letterman quips, “Recently, I won a radio contest. Winner gets to visit Dublin with Bono and The Edge (radio contest part not true, but I feel like a winner). 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).”

“We wanted to strip away the artifice that inevitably emerges when you’ve been around this long,” says Bono in the trailer. The Edge adds, “We seem to thrive doing something that’s never been done before.”
