Bono and The Edge played a surprise gig in a Kyiv bomb shelter (Now with the full performance)

Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy is apparently quite the U2 fan, but he even had to have been surprised when Bono and The Edge accepted an invitation to play an acoustic show in one of Kyiv’s subway stations, which are now functioning as bomb shelters. Yet they did. Risky gig.

Over the course of the performance, they were joined onstage by various Ukrainian musicians, including a member of the band Antytila.

Here’s the full performance (via Oreo)
