U2 has been confirmed to perform at the Brit Awards at London's Earls Court on Feb. 18. The Irish band will play their new single "Get On Your Boots"; their new set "No Line On The Horizon" (Mercury/Universal) is out March 2.

The awards ceremony will be screened live on ITV1. It is sponsored by MasterCard.

The other confirmed performer is Pet Shop Boys, recipient of the outstanding contribution to music award.

"We're thrilled to be able to confirm that U2 have chosen the Brits for their first global TV performance on their new album," said Ged Doherty, chairman of the Brits Committee and Sony Music Entertainment U.K. chairman and CEO, in a statement. "Their addition to the line-up for this year's show makes it possibly the best we have ever had. This cements The Brits as one of the biggest TV events in the world."

The band has previously won seven Brit awards, five of them for best international group.

The nominations for next month's awards will be unveiled Jan. 20.
