Bono and The Edge of U2 performed a set in Kyiv on Sunday after an invitation by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The two musical icons played 10-songs in the Khreshchatyk subway station, which now serves as a bomb shelter in the war torn country. Rolling Stone reported that they were joined by several Ukrainian musicians, who have joined the armed forces in their war effort after the Russian invasion.
Bono tweeted, “President @ZelenskyyUa invited us to perform in Kyiv as a show of solidarity with the Ukrainian people and so that’s what we’ve come to do.” During their set he added, “The people in Ukraine are not just fighting for your own freedom, you are fighting for all of us who love freedom. We pray that you will enjoy some of that peace soon.”
Video of part of the set was posted to YouTube.
