U2 And Jimmy Fallon Perform Impromptu Concert In NYC Subway
After failing to force their music on people digitally, U2 took the more conventional method of forcing their music on people; playing in the subway. The band plus Jimmy Fallon gave an impromptu concert in Grand Central Station. Near the 42nd Street S shuttle, they performed “Beautiful Day,” “Angel Of Harlem,” and new single “Song For Someone.”
The public performance is a skit for Fallon and is an indication of what’s to come when U2 appears on The Tonight Show this Friday.
Apparently Bono and the boys have been recording segments over the past week for their Fallon appearance. This is to make up for the week they missed on the show last year after Bono’s injury from his crazy bike crash.
Looks like the 54-year-old singer is in better condition than when he was in his bicycle accident that fractured his eye socket and shoulder blade as well as a severely fractured his elbow, which is now held together by three titanium plates and 18 screws. He even jumps on a bike with Fallon for a comedy bit.
U2 is no stranger to impromptu performances. Their Grammy-winning music video for their 1987 hit “Where the Streets Have No Name” was shot on the rooftop of a liquor store in Los Angeles.
