Before U2 Played SNL Last Night, They Did a Little Busking in a Dark Public Stairwell That Probably Smelled of Pee
U2 has a thing about showing up unannounced and in unusual places whenever they’re in New York. The latest bit of guerilla gigging happened Friday, the day before their appearance on Saturday Night Live the day after the release of their Songs of Experience album.
They set up on 26th Street in a darkened staircase below the High Line Park (which, like many public New York stairwells usually smells of pee) and broadcast everything on Facebook Live. Maybe they should have called this “Get Out of Ur-ine Way.” (Thanks to Michael for the pun.)
Bono should also be careful wandering out into traffic.
