Watch U2 Perform ‘Invisible’ on Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ Premiere
By Shannon Carlin
To kick off his first night hosting The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon welcomed Will Smith and U2 to his cushy new studio. Though the Irish band chose to leave the comforts of Studio 6B for the chilly Top of the Rock.
The band braved the windy elements, climbing 70 stories above the city to perform their new single, “Invisible.” With a scream of “It’s good to be back!” Bono launched into the new song with a little help from a drum line and a herd of screaming fans who huddled on the small rooftop.
It’s certainly not the first time, Bono and the guys have taken to the sky to perform. The band shot their video for “Where The Streets Have No Name” on a Los Angeles rooftop as an homage to The Beatles.
The band sat down with Fallon to practice their Oscar speech and play an acoustic version of their nominated song, “Ordinary Love” from the film Nelson Mandela biopic, Long Walk to Freedom. Even throwing in a nod to Jimmy’s drummer, Questlove.
The host also took a little time to show off his best hip-hop moves with Will Smith. Dressed in overalls, the two got jiggy with it, showing off the evolution of hip-hop dancing from the Cabbage Patch to the Carlton. Watch it all here.
