Check out Adam Clayton's interview on St. Patrick's University's pop-up station: Walk in My Shoes Radio. Adam appears around the 1:08:50 mark in the 2 hour radio show and talks for about 10 minutes. The radio station in Dublin will only be in existence until this Friday, the 14th!

Clayton discussed his passion for running (as opposed to using treadmills), as well as his thoughts on mental wellness and his history with substances:

"There is nothing that I miss about drugs and alcohol that a sober life hasn't given me ten fold. I love my life now."

Regarding new album plans, Adam dropped a few hints at what is happening in the studio. He said:

"We've been working on a record and we've been humming and hawing on whether it's finished or not. We've decided it's not finished -- we're going to work up until Christmas. I wish we were a little bit more definite about our scheduling because people have been expecting it. But it'll be out next year -- maybe March/April. That's the plan, but I'm not confirming it."

Adam was also no fan of Donald Trump when he said:

"He seems to be a very strange man."

Watch these 2 short video clips of Adam talking with Mr. McDermott on RTÉ's 2FM with regard to the Walk in My Shoes charity in helping to raise mental health awareness in children at St. Patrick University Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.

U2 perform at the Dreamfest conference right outside San Francisco (part of Salesforce's annual charity benefit for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital). The performance is held outdoors and uses U2's old stage setup from 2006's Vertigo stadium legs (only used once in the U.S. at the final show in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 9, 2006). The band rehearsed twice prior to the show, including the night before. A rare full band version of "California (There Is No End to Love)" is performed for only the 7th time in its entirety. U2 played a portion of "Zooropa" right after "Beautiful Day" and dedicated "Every Breaking Wave" to Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, who died 5 years ago to the day. The biggest moment came when U2 went after GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in a searing version of "Bullet the Blue Sky". In specially looped videos of Donald Trump, Bono attacks him for trying to hijack the American Dream as a self-serving and destructive business man. This mockery by Bono resembles his "conversation" with George H. W. Bush as "MacPhisto" on U2's ZooTV Tour. Right after "One", U2's scheduled encore was nixed because Bono spoke about charity involving the Red campaign. Much like the Innocence + Experience Tour, U2 performed a similar encore of songs until the final encore of "40". That song ("40") was played in celebration of U2's recent 40th anniversary of being together as a band. Bono said: "It feels kind of like a 40th birthday song".
