Achtung Baby!: U2 give impromptu gig on Berlin's subway”

U2 band-mates Bono and the Edge stunned fans when they performed a live concert in an underground station in Berlin on Wednesday.

Some 200 fans were on board a private train hired by label Universal Music to an exclusive meet and greet event to promote U2's new album, Songs of Experience. The underground station, short for U-Bahn 2, isn't actually named after the band, but Berlin holds a special place in the Beautiful Day hitmakers' hearts as it's where they recorded their iconic album Achtung Baby in 1990, just months after the Berlin Wall came down.

U2 frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge been in the Berlin, treating fans on the city's subway system to an impromptu mini-concert.

Bono and his bandmates played a 15-minute acoustic set for delighted commuters, after a local radio station had run a competition to win tickets to join them on the train to the stop.

The band had completed their album in November previous year, but made a decision to delay release and give it a revamp to reflect the changed political climate after Donald Trump's election as USA president.

Songs of Experience, which dropped December 1, via Interscope Records in the US, is on track to become U2's eighth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
