U2 Performs at Haiti Fund Raiser Saturday Night

Bookmark and Share

U2 were on stage tonight at the 3rd annual Sean Penn & friends HELP HAITI HOME gala fund raiser at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel.

As best we can tell, Bono and The Edge took the stage first, singing a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" with Haitian singer Anaelle Jean-Pierre. At some point after that, it seems like the whole band took the stage for at least a couple songs. Bono apparently told the small crowd (est. 300 people) that it was the band's first performance together in four years. (He's obviously not counting October's performance on the beach in Bray, nor the cover of Aslan's "This Is" from last June ... and if he's referring to the end of the 360 tour in Moncton, that was closer to 2.5 years ago. But who's counting?)

Below are several Instagram videos from attendees, in the order that we think U2 performed. The Associated Press confirms that U2 played three songs following the "Hallelujah" performance earlier in the evening.

In addition to the videos, you can see a bunch of photos on Zimbio.
