U2’s Bono & the Edge Give Surprise Concert in Kyiv Metro/Bomb Shelter: “Stand by Me,” “Angel of Harlem,” and “With or Without You”

Volodymyr Zelen­skyy invit­ed U2 to per­form in Kyiv as a show of sol­i­dar­i­ty with the Ukrain­ian peo­ple. And they showed up, play­ing an impro­vised acoustic set in a Kyiv Metro sta­tion, which now dou­bles as a bomb shel­ter. Above you can watch Bono and the Edge per­form “Stand by Me,” “Angel of Harlem,” and “With or With­out You.” At points, they’re joined by mem­bers of the Ukrain­ian band Antyti­la.
