U2 Busked on a New York City Subway Platform

The quartet was promoting an upcoming 'Tonight Show' Appearance

U2 took a break from inserting themselves into peoples’ iTunes and instead inserted themselves into New Yorkers’ commutes when the band hit the NYC subway to busk. The group was supposed to play a weeklong residency on the Tonight Show in November of last year, but that was canceled after Bono had a really, really, really nasty bike accident. They rescheduled to this Friday for a show completely dedicated to U2, and the group’s frontman sang “Angel Of Harlem” (while wearing a dumb blue cowboy hat) at the Grand Central Shuttle stop (83 blocks south of Harlem) to promote the show.

Watch a short video of the busking below — and no matter what you think about U2, all Manhattanites can agree that this is better than the “It’s Showtime” crews.
