U2’s Bono & The Edge Perform In Subway Bomb Shelter In Ukraine
Frontman of U2, Bono, performed a surprise acoustic concert in a Kyiv subway station, which is currently serving as a bomb shelter.
The Irish singer revealed on Twitter that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had invited him to perform at the station to show support for the people of Ukraine during these uncertain and terrifying times.
Alongside the rock band’s guitarist, the Edge, Bono performed the U2 classic “With or Without You,” and a version of Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me.” The artists were also joined by Ukrainian singer Taras Topolia and his bandmates from Antytila, who are currently serving as soldiers for the Ukraine army.
“The people in Ukraine are not just fighting for your own freedom, you are fighting for all of us who love freedom,” Bono said between songs.
