Watch U2 Pretty Much Take Over ‘The Tonight Show’
In November of last year, international superstars U2 had to cancel a weeklong residency on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after Bono had a nasty spill on a bicycle. However, last night (May 8), the rockers finally returned to let fans know they're back in action.
Bono kicked everything off by getting back in the saddle, so to speak, when he rode a bike for the first time since his accident. The rest of the band almost ends Bono's return to health, though:
Jimmy Fallon then joined the band to pull off a little incognito musical appearance. They all donned disguises and did a little musical begging in Manhattan's Grand Central subway station.
With some sketchy facial hair and an affected Brooklyn accent, Fallon tries to drum up some spare dollars and change for U2, who start off with a little "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." The subterfuge doesn't last long:
Once the band sat down to talk with Fallon, Bono and company showed fans a sneak-peak of what to expect from their upcoming North American Innocence + Experience stadium tour:
And Bono talked a little about his biking accident. He said, "There's nothing cool about coming off a push-bike. This is not a Harley Davidson ... there's Lycra involved."
And or course, U2 played some music. You can watch their performances of "Beautiful Day," "Angel of Harlem" and "Song for Someone" below:
