Telly host James Corden is lining up Irish favourites U2 to star on Carpool Karaoke.
The Dublin rockers have long been top of the US Late Late Show host’s wish list for his world famous karaoke session in a car.
And Bono and the boys are likely to coincide their upcoming Joshua Tree tour dates with a spin around with James.
A show insider revealed: “James is a big U2 fan and knows having them for Carpool Karaoke would work really well.
“Schedules have been hectic, but with U2’s new tour coming up, the production team are currently working out timings and logistics.”
Some of Corden’s most popular Carpool Karaokes to date have involved the comedian travelling to meet the stars.
And a one-off trip to Dublin to spin around with U2 might just be on the cards for the hit US show.
The insider continued: “The White House with Michelle Obama and London with Adele were two of the shows biggest hits. Ireland with U2 would be pretty perfect, and the feelers have been put out there to try make it happen.”
Producers of the show rarely reveal the identity of acts driving around with the Gavin & Stacey writer, but our insiders have revealed that they are excited about snapping up U2.
The band are currently preparing to hit the road in May with the new tour.
If the appearance goes ahead, the Vertigo rockers will become only the second artist from these shores to feature on the show after Mullingar’s Niall Horan.
The This Town singer rode shotgun as Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson sat beside one another in the famous backseat in 2015.
And Niallers made headlines when he admitted he would love to marry rumoured love interest Selina Gomez during a game on Corden’s show called “Sleep with, Marry, Cruise”.
Asked by Corden to choose between Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Tina Fey, Horan replied: “Sleep with Tina Fey. Let’s marry Gomez and go on a cruise with Demi Lovato.
“Great voice, we could be singing songs.”
