Gaga was warmly welcomed by the audience, who had a very intimate moment with the band during their acoustic set. As she was going off stage at the end of the song, Bono called her the “wonder woman of New York City” and said that their moment was “a delight.”
Lady Gaga’s appearance was an incredible surprise for the audience. Before launching into the song, Bono asked if there was a piano player in the audience. Gaga then walked on stage in her signature Alexander McQueen heels. Bono might have been in a very Gaga mood: he also sang a little bit of “Born This Way” later in the show.
The Irish band is welcoming one surprise guest per night during their eight-night residency at Madison Square Garden. Paul McCartney, Nile Rodgers and Jimmy Fallon have already joined the band on stage.
As part of their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour, U2 will be playing two more nights in New York City: on Thursday, July 30, and then on Friday, July 31, each at 8:00 pm. Tickets go from $35.00 to $280.00.
Gaga is gaining her popularity back step by step at the moment: her fifth album is still on its way and she will soon star in American Horror Story’s fifth season. Earlier in July, at Comic Con in San Diego, Calif., Ryan Murphy, the creator of the series, revealed that her character would be “evil.”
He said that Gaga had requested to play a villain, and revealed that her role won’t involve any singing — but part of it will involve fashion. “You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way so the designers have been coming out of the woodwork and making stuff for us. It’s been really, really thrilling,” Murphy said, adding that working with “somebody like her” is like “you sign up for something that is larger than life.”
