U2 Preps 'Walk On' For Three Potential Grammys

Posted on Friday, February 22 @ 15:27:58 CET by Macphisto

(Launch.com) -- After performances at the Super Bowl halftime show and for a private interest at the just-concluded Winter Olympics, U2 is preparing for Wednesday's (February 27) Grammy Awards. The Irish group is the odds-on favorite for a big night, leading all nominees with eight. Among those is "Walk On," which has been nominated in three categories--record of the year, best rock performance by a group, and best rock song.

U2 frontman Bono tells LAUNCH that "Walk On" was inspired by director John Boorman's 1995 film, Beyond Rangoon: "He got caught up in the story of Ang Sung Suki, this woman who was an academic who left her family and comfortable life in Oxford, England, to go back and be with her people in Burma, facing certain house arrest and even death. It's an extraordinary story." Suki, in fact, remains under government arrest in Burma despite international calls to free her.

U2 will perform at the Grammys, which are being held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
