Walls Come Tumbling Down

The Claw Stage Set

U2 are to play a free gig in front of the Brandenburg Gate at the Berlin Wall, Germany on November 5.

Playing as part of the ‘Fall of The Wall’ celebrations in the city, commemorating 20 years since the Berlin Wall came down, U2 will perform as part of this year’s MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) which take place in Berlin on the same day.

U2‘s manager Paul McGuinness says on the U2 website: “It’ll be an exciting spot to be in, 20 years almost to the day since the wall came down. Should be fun.”

“They’ve played some interesting places in the past but this’ll certainly be the most ambitious – and most poignant – one to date.”

To register for a pair of free tickets and for more information see the band’s official website here: U2.com

“Walls Come Tumbling Down” – The Style Council

You don’t have to take this crap
You don’t have to sit back and relax
You can actually try changing it
I know we’ve always been taught to rely
Upon those in authority –
But you never know until you try
How things just might be –
If we came together so strongly

Are you gonna try to make this work
Or spend your days down in the dirt
You see things can change –
YES an’ walls can come tumbling down!

Governments crack and systems fall
’cause Unity is powerful –
Lights go out – walls come tumbling down!

The competition is a colour TV
We’re on still pause with the video machine
That keep you slave to the H.P.

Until the Unity is threatend by
Those who have and who have not –
Those who are with and those who are without
And dangle jobs like a donkey’s carrot –
Until you don’t know where you are

Are you gonna realize
The class war’s real and not mythologized
And like Jericho – You see walls can come tumbling down!

Are you gonna be threatend by
The public enemies No. 10 –
Those who play the power game
They take the profits – you take the blame –
When they tell you there’s no rise in pay

Are you gonna try an’ make this work
Or spend your days down in the dirt –
You see things CAN change –
YES an’ walls can come tumbling down!
