U2 Played “When Love Comes to Town” for the First Time in 22 Years to Honor B.B. King    

It’s been more than two decades since U2 played “When Love Comes to Town,” a collaboration with B.B. King from their 1988 album Rattle and Hum, but this weekend the band brought it back in tribute to the blues legend, who died last Thursday. U2 hadn’t played the song since 1993, but King had still performed the song occasionally. When the band finished playing, Bono referenced King’s biggest hit, saying, “The thrill will never be gone.”

Here’s the video for the original version with King:
