On Sunday, Jimmy Fallon and Bono were spotted filming an apparent Tonight Show skit riffing on the U2 lead singer’s very unfortunate Central Park bicycling accident. And last night, per Fox New York’s Luke Funk, the band with Fallon in tow were busking at the Grand Central subway station. At the outset, with facial disguises.
All in advance of U2’s return to The Tonight Show Friday May 8, an episode which at this point appears to have only the Irish rockers as confirmed guests. In a report about the busking, The Guardian ended with a brief reminder of why it might make sense for the group to perform Angel of Harlem at Monday night’s chosen location:
Those wishing to travel to Harlem from Grand Central station can take either the Hudson or Harlem lines north. The journey is a mere 10-minute ride to 125th Street.
The band kicks off its Innocence + Experience world tour next week in Canada.
