Bono & U2 Give Surprise Performance in Kyiv Bomb Shelter

U2's Bono and The Edge are showing their support for the people of Ukraine by putting on an impromptu concert in a subway station turned bomb shelter in Ukraine's capital of Kyiv.

They performed hits like “With or Without You,” "Desire" and "Angel of Harlem," as well as a version of Ben E King’s “Stand By Me.” Bono invited Ukrainian singer Taras Topolya and his bandmates from Antytila—who are serving as soldiers amid the invasion—to join in on the latter song.
