What can't Jimmy do?!
Last night, Jimmy Fallon stopped by Madison Square Garden in New York to visit U2 during their concert!
But he didn't just swing by to say "hi". After the late night host surprised the audience by showing up on stage, he poked a bit of fun at himself and the band's guitarist The Edge by saying:
"I'm a big fan of Irish people who fall down and hurt themselves"
He then joined the band by helping to sing Desire before going solo and doing his best Bono impression and taking the lead vocals!
In true Fallon fashion, he topped it all off with a harmonica solo at the end!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing performance (above) while you dream of what it would be like to see Jimmy as a rockstar!
Most rock stars would love to get a chance to play with themselves in front of a screaming audience.
And U2 frontman Bono got to do just that when the band performed at the Air Canada Centre on Monday!
The iTunes infiltrators were playing a show on their Innocence + Experience tour when they invited Toronto based U2 cover band Acrobat on stage to play with them!
The cover band rocked out with the actual band during a performance of the hit Desire.
Acrobat is made up of Gabriel Pate as Bono, Martin Chorlton as guitarist the Edge, Mark Baker as bassist Adam Clayton, and Michael Wood as drummer Larry Mullen Jr.!
Check out the concert footage (below) to see this band's dreams come true!
How sweet! At least he gave her a hefty tip instead of a free digital copy of U2's album!
Bono totally made a waitress' day early Friday morning after his band performed at The Roxy that previous evening.
It was 3 a.m. when the U2 frontman and some of his friends walked through the doors of Canter's Deli in El Lay and he was waited on by Bella Haig, an 80-year-old waitress who had been at the restaurant for 50 years.
After they were seated, the 55-year-old basically asked the woman to serve him with whatever she felt like he should have.
Bella remembered thinking after he told her to pick an appetizer for him:
"I went to the back and I said 'this guy doesn't look Jewish, but I'm going to get him some matzah ball soup with carrots and noodles and chicken.'"
Shortly after, she recommended the Reuben sandwich, and according to onlookers, Bono also got french fries, onion rings, and a chocolate chip rugelach dessert on the house!
That definitely sounds like a late night meal/early breakfast for a rock star!
When everyone was done with their meal, the Irish musician paid the bill and gave Bella a $150 cash tip! Cash. Tip. On a bill that was less than $20!
She said of the generous move:
"Wow, I lucked out, I was thrilled. I was surprised it was that much."
The veteran waitress says she's going to use the cash to take her family out to dinner!

U2 suffered a terrible loss on Wednesday.
Dennis Sheehan, the band's tour manager of an astounding 32 years, passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning, shortly after their first show at Los Angeles' Forum.
Though the band soldiered on and played their second show Wednesday night, they did so in mourning.
Bono took a moment near the beginning of the concert to talk to audience about their loss. He said:
We knew Red Nose Day was a British charity, but we didn't expect all of the acts to be from across the pond!
Bono and Co. sang Song for Someone during NBC's fundraiser, and it was the best they've sounded live in a while!
Their act was cut with video of struggling children from around the world… and it was just a very moving moment.
Did U take part in Red Nose Day??
Ch-ch-check out U2's charitable performance (above)!!!
Well, they don't call him The Edge for nothing!
U2's lead guitarist, keyboardist and backup vocalist, The Edge — real name David Howell Evans — fell off stage last night at the end of their Vancouver show!
The 53-year-old rock star was strolling down the stage during the band's final song of the night, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, when he took a tumble. Thankfully there were no major injuries, and nothing near as bad as Bono's accident late last year which has caused some more serious problems.
One fan took to Instagram to post a video of the accident, which you can ch-ch-check out (below)
Subway performers are hit or miss, but sometimes they're a multi-platinum-selling band in disguise!
U2 fans got a great surprise on their daily commute when the band performed in a New York City subway station on Monday night!
The band disguised themselves as street performers as they jammed on the S train platform in Grand Central Station to promote their upcoming iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour!
The rock band is set to appear on The Tonight Show Friday night. Jimmy Fallon was said to be in the crowd during their subway performance — we wonder if this will be included in their segment on the late night show Friday night?
Ch-ch-check out a clip of the band performing Angel of Harlem in the video (below) and see if you can spot Jimmy rocking out in the background!
