U2's new album, No Line On The Horizon, is released on 2 March
U2 have announced they will be playing a special live set for Radio 1 on Friday 27 February.
The band, whose new album is out in March, are due to perform a three-track Live Lounge session.
Jo Whiley will host the band in her first week back on Radio 1 after maternity leave.
She said: "It's always a bit nerve-racking going back after having a baby. But having U2 playing in the Live Lounge is especially thrilling."
Fans of the Irish rockers will also get the chance to witness the special performance.
Details of how to apply for tickets will be announced during Jo Whiley's show on 23 February.
The group's 12th studio album, No Line On The Horizon, is set for its UK release on 2 March.
The LP was recorded with producers Brian Eno, Danny Lanois and Steve Lillywhite after sessions with producer Rick Rubin were abandoned.
Jo Whiley gave birth to a daughter, called Coco Lux, in October.
She is the 43-year-old's fourth child with husband, Virgin executive Steve Morton.
The couple already have a daughter called India, 16, and two sons, Jude, 10, and Cass, seven.
Jo Whiley presents Radio 1's mid-morning show between 10am and 12.45pm.
The presenter announced she was pregnant on her show last May.
