U2 Plays Surprise Show On NYC Subway Platform

Travelers through New York City's Grand Central Station were treated to a surprise performance by U2 on Monday as the band recorded a segment for "The Tonight Show."
Members of the band at first wore disguises, including wigs, with drummer Larry Mullen Jr. even beating on upside down buckets instead of drums to complete the effect:
Eventually, the disguises came off and the band led the crowd in a sing-along of their 1988 hit "Angel of Harlem," from the "Rattle and Hum" album (although it should be noted that Grand Central is 65 blocks from Harlem itself):
Earlier this week, Fallon and Bono were spotted apparently recreating the November 2014 bicycle accident that left the singer so severely injured that he had to postponewhat was supposed to be a weeklong residency for the band on "The Tonight Show." Bono reportedly has trouble playing the guitar even five months after the crash.
