U2 Surprises NYC Commuters, Performs Mini Concert in the Subway

Celebrity sightings in the streets of New York City are a daily occurrence -- spontaneous performances from global music legends, not so much.

Yesterday, U2, known for forcing their music on people, gave an impromptu performance in the Grand Central subway station to tons of unsuspecting tourists flooding the platforms.

Fans crowded around the group as they played a couple tunes. Bono & Friends even performed their iconic hit "Angel of Harlem" -- check it out in the Instagram post below.

The band will be stopping by "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Friday, which is rumored to be the reason behind the surprise subway performance. That Jimmy Fallon never ceases to amaze us.
