  U2 is the latest act to receive a dedicated channel on SiriusXM.

 

The satellite radio provider will turn specialty Channel 30 to The U2 Experience from noon June 1 through June 30.

 

In addition to showcasing U2’s music, the channel will also feature interviews with Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. and the band’s long-time sound engineer Joe O’Herilhy.

 

On June 11, U2 will perform a one-off, invitation-only show (for SiriusXM listeners) at Harlem’s Apollo Theater, its most intimate performance in nearly 20 years.

 

The concert will air on The U2 Experience, and also be simulcast on Howard Stern’s Howard 101 channel.

 

U2 will play an intimate-ish show next week, when on Monday they visit Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth for their first Atlanta-area performance since 2009.
