U2 was recently spotted busking in New York City’s Grand Central Station recently, but it wasn’t for falling on hard times.
We imagine Bono and the boys are doing just fine in the financial department. In actuality, Monday’s street performance was much ado about a “Tonight Show” appearance.
According to the Huffington Post, the uber famous band dressed in disguise and eventually revealed themselves to fans.
Jimmy Fallon was of course in attendance as was, rather peculiarly, Mario Batali. Thankfully, a great deal of smartphone-wielding fans were also present.
Here are just a few of the sights and sounds spotted on various corners of social media:
As the report states, the performance will be featured on Friday’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” which, according to the Huffington Post, will also include a possible skit that features a Bono-designed dummy recreating the now infamous bike incident.

Thankfully, Bono is doing much better after a Nov. 2014 bike accident that left the U2 frontman with a bevy of serious injuries.
The New York Post reminds that injuries included, “mangling his right eye socket, shattering his left arm and damaging his elbow, shoulder blade and hand.”
And, as echoed in the same report, Bono is still unable to play the guitar.
However, the singer was able to join the rest of U2 to offer denizens swarming the iconic Grand Central with a surprise concert from quite possibly the most famous NYC buskers ever.
This should serve as a reminder to never ignore the music wafting through various parts of the city, because you never know who the musician might be.
