Bono Impression By Jimmy Fallon Steals Show In U2 Concert
Jimmy Fallon, the famous “The Tonight Show” host, did a badass act in the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden. The star, who is known for pulling off on-point tribute to famous singers, was seen holding up a sign saying, “Singer with a broken finger.”
The game of impersonation is long played by Jimmy Fallon. This got an extra upgrade in his show. He was there in the front row of the show and actually stole it with his brilliant presence.
Fallon joked in his original style, “I’m afraid of Irish men that fall down and injure themselves.”
The star became the surprise entertainer of the U2 show even if he had trouble clapping with his broken finger. The 40-year-old comedian played his harmonica, while twisting his body to portray Bono’s signature move. He made a lot of moves to keep the audience entertained.
While Fallon was performing a Bono step, the real Bono, on the other hand, was filming him on a cell phone. Fallon was not alone representing the “Tonight Show.” The Roots, his resident band, was also a part of the show.
It can well be called a publicity gag by Jimmy Fallon. As he mentioned in his Twitter post, “Thank you @TheGarden for the fun. It almost didn’t happen last minute. I’ll explain tonight on my show!”
Just in the month of May, U2 took over “Tonight Show” and this may be a way of giving back the favor.
The actor, musician and comedian started hosting “The Tonight Show” after Jay Leno left the show in 2014. He debuted in the show on Feb 17 2014. NBC engages 11.3 million viewers which makes it the most watched late night show. The star was recently spotted with Adam Sandler doing a lip-flipping routine. Adam was present in the show to promote his new Film “Pixel,” which is already released in theaters.
