VIDEO: U2 perform on The Tonight Show

U2 performed several tunes to mark their return to The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday.

The group – who appeared on Fallon’s debut broadcast in February of 2014 – were forced to postpone a week-long residency following a serious bicycle accident involving Bono in Central Park last November that involved surgery and downtime for the singer.

U2 made fun of the accident in a pre-recorded skit on the May 9 episode, and Bono later spoke about it when the group joined Fallon to catch up on his and the band’s status as they prepare to launch their “Innocence + Experience” tour in support of “Songs Of Innocence” in Vancouver, BC on May 14.

Fallon also set U2 up in a New York City subway station disguised as buskers; they played a snippet of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” before revealing themselves to the gathering crowd and delivering an energetic version of their 1988 single, “Desire.”

In the Tonight Show studio, U2 performed three songs including “Beautiful Day”, “Angel Of Harlem” and their new single, “Song For Someone.”
