We Now Have Full Video of U2 Busking in the New York City Subway

Earlier this week, a shoddily disguised U2 busked in New York City’s 42nd Street station. The gig was a stunt for Jimmy Fallon, who on Friday dedicated an entire Tonight Show episode to the band. Footage was previously limited to a few choice clips on Instagram, but Fallon’s now shared the full, triumphant video of the performance.

As always, the band is excellent live, but this is worth the watch just to see onlookers slowly realize that the guy belting “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in a cornflower-blue cowboy hat is Bono.
