U2 on jimmy fallon bono

If you think Late Night starring Jimmy Fallon couldn’t get any more awesome, did you watch the All U2 Hour on Fallon on Friday night? You didn’t? Geez, you missed all kinds of awesome.

U2 was on Late Night starring Jimmy Fallon for the entire show because of having to cancel last year’s planned week long residency after Bono had a bicycle accident in Central Park that put him in the hospital.

Fallon thought it would be nice to make it up to them by offering them the entire show, so that’s what they got.

And they did a whole lot of things during that hour.

Busking on the New York subway in disguise (and not getting that much attention until they took off their disguises, and the crowd went wild). Recreating Bono’s bike accident in a funny sketch that involved Bono getting hit by a van — three times. Bono being interviewed by Fallon about his bike accident (which included a few grisly details), and U2 performing three new songs live —  ‘Beautiful Day’, ‘Song For Someone’, and ‘Angel of Harlem‘.

Watch U2 on the Late Show below.
