Just in time for St.Patric’s Day, Disney+ has released the first official trailer for the highly anticipated docu-special, “Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, with Dave Letterman.”
Set to be released on March 17th, it will follow one of Ireland’s most beloved musical exports as they seek to find their way back to a new sound.
The film comes from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville and captures the legendary late-night host David Letterman on his first visit to Dublin – viewing the city from U2’s Bono & The Edge eyes.
Equal parts travel film and part concert movie, the film will explore the city that shaped the two musicians at its centre, and exhibit the music that they’ve created over their long careers.

It will also explore the relationship at the core of U2 and the friendship between Bono & The Edge.
Throughout the docu-special, we will see Dave act as an honoured guest at an intimate concert performance, while also embarking on his own exploration of the city visiting places like the legendary Forty Foot – not to mention severing as inspiration for a brand new U2 song written by The Edge & Bono.
The new trailer also shows glimpses of the historic Irish city, with Bono speaking in voice-over, describing the vitality of the city, and how both music and storytelling are essential to the city’s identity.
The central question of the film is then raised by The Edge. Where do you go when you’ve already stretched the bounds of accomplishment?
“Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming with Dave Letterman” is set to premiere globally on Disney+ on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day.
This will also coincide with U2’s highly anticipated album “Songs Of Surrender” ― a collection of 40 seminal U2 songs from across the band’s catalogue, re-recorded and reimagined.
