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!
The frontman of the one of the most popular bands ever - U2 - recently disclosed how his recent injury may prevent him from playing guitar ever again!
That's right, Bono!!
He divulged a bit about his injury on his band's website and how the injuries he sustained in a bike accident are more serious than anyone may have thought! Like may never play guitar again kind of serious!
And it's all super terrifying to think about!
Here's what Bono wrote:
Remember that time you got into a bike accident and had to get Gene to fill in for you at work for a week?
Well, when you're Bono, you can't get just any temp.
So when the injured U2 frontman needed a replacement to perform at the surprise (RED) concert in NYC, he found some superb substitutes!
First, Chris Martin of Coldplay filled in with the perfect tone!
U2 was supposed to start their week-long residency on The Tonight Show this week…
But now things have been postponed! Nooooo! What happened??
Bono had a bike accident!! The band released a statement on their website:
