U2 have been profoundly influenced by Martin Luther King Jr.’s inspiring messages and groundbreaking work, and they even dedicated their songs “Pride (In the Name of Love)” and “MLK” to the civil rights icon. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Bono will once again honour Dr. King by reading excerpts of the activist’s unforgettable speeches and playing “Pride (In the Name of Love)” and “MLK” on U2 X-Radio (Ch. 32).
Starting at 1 am on Monday, January 18th, hear Bono’s special tribute — titled Pride: In The Name of Love — on U2 X-Radio throughout the day. This 10-minute vignette will also be available to stream on the SiriusXM app.
In the meantime, relive U2’s stirring 1986 performance of “Pride (In the Name of Love)” from the Conspiracy of Hope concert in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
