New U2 song appears online – video

Watch footage of the track on NME.COM

Footage of U2 rehearsing a new song has surfaced online – and you can watch it on NME.COM.

The short film was captured by fans who are camped out near the gates of the Stadio Olimpico di Torino in Italy, where the group are rehearsing ahead of their first gig of 2010 on Friday (August 6).

The show will be the band’s first since Bono underwent back surgery, which forced them to cancel a number of US shows and their headline slot at Glastonbury.

As reports, Bono and co have also been heard playing a number of other songs including ‘Get On Your Boots’, ‘Magnificent’ and ‘Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me’, the band’s 1995 single from the Batman Forever soundtrack. The latter song did not appear on any of the band’s setlists during the first part of the tour last year.

As previously reported, U2 have announced details of their rescheduled US tour, which now begins in May 2011.
