The rocker called in to KROQ to discuss U2’s future plans and what Bono’s accident means for them.
Kanye West and Carrie Underwood will also perform.
Just watch the video, and a day’s worth of medicine will be donated to someone who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
He told the British magazine Mojo, “I’m very proud of what we did. It’s one of the proudest moments in U2’s history.”

Watch One Direction, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Bono & More Perform ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ For Band Aid 30
Nearly every British artist ever gathered together this weekend to re-record the holiday classic, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in honor of the charity single’s 30th anniversary. That is, except for Adele.
The frontman injured his hand after a fall in Central Park.
Don’t worry: Bono was on the flight, but everyone’s fine.
Bono intimated that U2 might be open to getting their acoustic on during upcoming live dates.
“You’re not going to get this out of your head now and you will be saying, ‘Ah, poor old blind Bono.’”
Included are songs from U2’s 13 full-length studio albums (Rattle and Hum is partially a studio album, so it counts), plus odds ‘n’ ends that weren’t live tracks or remixes included on U2’s two Best Of’s and its U218 singles collection, plus some recent one-off singles (“Invisible,” “Ordinary Love”) for timeliness.
“And people feel like, ‘Not them again!’ But it is us again, and we’ve brought the tunes and we can play ‘em.”
U2 giving away their album for free via iTunes isn’t the only surprise project the band has in store for fans. It’s not even the only surprise project they have in the works with Apple.
Just to be clear, Bono knows how invasive it was to drop his surprise album in your iCloud — but that was the point. In an interview this morning, the U2 frontman opened up about the band’s release method.
