Thanks to DJ Martin Garrix, Dutch musician Bram van den Berg is temporarily allowed to play drums in U2. In an interview with Music Magazine Rolling Stone U2 guitarist The Edge says Dutch DJ introduced the drummer to the band.

Van den Berg, who usually drums with Crisip, will replace U2 drummer Larry Mullen for a number of shows in Las Vegas this fall as Mullen has to recover from a back injury. The concerts revolve around the successful album Achung baby From 1991.

When U2 announced last month that Van den Bergh would temporarily take the drum chair, it wasn’t clear how it turned out with the Irish. The Edge guitarist now says Martin Garrix played an important role in this.

“We met Bram through our friend Martin Jarrix. We were so touched by his game and the person he is. He’s a real force, but he’s also great to be around,” says The Edge in an interview with Rolling Stone.

“He’s such a nice guy to spend time with, which of course is crucial for us because U2 is about those deep friendships and relationships. That was the norm. We’ve been working together a little bit more since then to see if it can work. I think it would be great.” .


Martin Garrix is ​​a good friend of the members of U2. Together with the band, the Dutchman performed the theme song for the UEFA European Football Championship 2021, we are the people.

It is the first time in the band’s existence that U2 has had to dispense with a permanent drummer. “We’re very disappointed that he won’t be there to take the drum chair,” says The Edge. “But everyone has a right to contact with patients. Forty years of working together and this is the first time this has happened. I find it amazing that we haven’t seen this before.”
