The one-hour show will be radio broadcast live across the U.S., and tickets will be available only through a contest at 92.3 K-Rock (WXRK) in NYC.

The group is reportedly planning to launch their 2001 world tour next March in Miami. The tour is expected to stop in arenas rather than the large stadiums the band has played on previous outings.

Meanwhile, they’ve been playing promotional one-offs to support their new album, All That You Can’t Leave Behind.

U2 played a short set on top of the Clarence Hotel in Dublin, Ireland, in September, and a similar open-air set from the balcony of MTV’s offices in New York City. They also made a live appearance at the Man Ray Club in Paris.

The band joins Madonna and Ricky Martin in the ranks of superstars playing free radio station promotion shows. Ms. Ciccone performed for “a few close friends” at the Roseland Ballroom on November 5, and has a similar show planned for the Brixton Academy in London November 28.
