For the intimate concert at L.A.’s club Roxy, Bono and company reached back to the band’s beginnings for the fan-focused setlist.
In a new interview with The New York Times, the members of U2 discuss their upcoming tour and the effects of Bono’s near-cataclysmic bicycle accident from last year.
“If this does not change, we fear you and your fellow leaders could be sleep-walking the world towards one of the greatest failures of recent history.”
Bono talked about his recent bike accident in a message to fans that he posted to U2’s website, including that his guitar playing days may be over. But “the band have reminded me that neither they nor Western civilization are depending on this.”
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.”
Among the magazine’s least influential celebrities includes one of the most talked-about artists of the year in the U2 frontman.
The somber PSA features a plethora of famous faces, including Matt Damon, Thandie Newton, Connie Britton and Morgan Freeman.
He’s expected to make a full recovery, though when that’ll be is unknown.
