U2 Tiny Desk Concert

Bono, the Edge and the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Choir peform four songs at NPR for their Tiny Desk Concert series. Amazing stripped down performance letting you really appreciate the masterful song writing of U2.

This is my new favorite Tiny Desk Concert.

From the description:

Traveling without bassist Adam Clayton or drummer Larry Mullen Jr., Bono and The Edge made the trip from Ireland to the States specifically for the Tiny Desk, arriving in D.C. after five days of rehearsals at Bono’s New York apartment. When they settled in for the performance, they treated the office to four songs, including a deeply emotional version of “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of,” written for the late INXS singer Michael Hutchence, and a reworked version of “Walk On,” which Bono said was inspired by and dedicated to the people of Ukraine.
