'I realise this is not fashionable but, good grief, U2 are absolutely brilliant' - everyone was loving U2 on BBC last night
U2 went down a storm on the BBC last night, despite a few niggles from viewers about Cat Deeley fronting the show.
Bono and the boys featured on U2 at the BBC, a series which has already showcased the work of Adele, Michael Buble and Sam Smith among others.
With a mix of music and interviews, it gave fans an intimate insight into the band as they are now, and their latest album Songs of Experience.
There was a massive response to the show on Twitter with the vast majority of people praising the band's sound and longevity and some were positive despite themselves it seemed!
The only gripes were Cat's presenting skills and the fact the programme was 'too short' and should have been 'two hours long'...
I realise this is not fashionable but, good grief, U2 are absolutely brilliant on this telly programme #U2attheBBC— Mat Davies (@RafaDavies) December 19, 2017
Absolute masterclass from U2 on BBC now. Sounding better than ever. And still bloody cool. Proper rock stars. #U2attheBBC— Vicki O (@Vixstero) December 19, 2017

Incredible band, a back catalogue of songs second to none.
Still producing albums that go to No1 all over the world.
Still sell out stadiums all over world.
Fuck the haters .
Insane that an Irish band from the north side of Dublin became and remain the biggest band in the world. 40 years on and still better than anything else out there #U2atthebbc— Rob (@RobSmyth89) December 19, 2017
