Don’t miss Bono’s special tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. on U2 X-Radio

U2 has been profoundly influenced by Martin Luther King Jr.’s inspiring messages and groundbreaking work, and the legendary band even dedicated its songs “Pride (In the Name of Love)” and “MLK” to the civil rights icon. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Bono will once again honor 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).

“Dr. King kept us tolerant in a time of terror,” Bono says during his 10-minute tribute. “Kept us faithful to peace and community. Made us believe in joy and justice. Showed us the way to a shared humanity. Dr. King’s voice is louder today than it has ever been. He is one of the true fathers of our American dream.”

Starting at 1am ET on January 18, hear Bono’s entire tribute — titled Pride: In The Name of Love — on U2 X-Radio throughout the day. After its debut, listeners can stream it anytime 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.
