U2 & Arcade Fire do Joy Division

Montreal in 2005, U2 and then-opening act Arcade Fire, perform Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart".

Here is the link to "Control", the Anton Corbijn movie about Ian Curtis's life and death. It's a very powerful movie, and you don't have to be a Joy Division fan to appreciate it. One of U2's early influences, you can hear, within the music, what inspired four Irish boys from the north side of Dublin to make music together.
