VIDEO: U2 perform on Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon debut

U2 performed on the debut episode of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, and video of their appearance is available.

The band performed their new single, “Invisible”, 70 stories high on the rooftop of Rockefeller Center midway through the program; they returned later to join Fallon for a quick interview before playing an acoustic version of their Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated tribute to Nelson Mandela, “Ordinary Love.”

U2 will perform “Ordinary Love” at the 86th Annual Academy Awards on March 2.

“Ordinary Love” was written by the group for the feature film, “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”, and is nominated for Original Song. The three other nominated songs are “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2”, “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and “The Moon Song” from “Her.”

Last month, U2 picked up a Best Original Song Golden Globe Award for “Ordinary Love” and were on hand to pick up the honor – read more about it here.

U2 are continuing work on a new album, which was originally expected this spring but now has a tentative summer release scheduled.
