Watch Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin fill in for Bono at U2 concert
NEW YORK CITY - With or without you, Bono, the show must go on. U2 performed without frontman Bono during Monday's World AIDS Day show in Times Square, but the band recruited Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay's Chris Martin to fill in. Bono is still recovering from what his surgeon called a "High-energy bicycle accident" in Central Park last month. The 54-year old singer sustained a facial fracture on his eye socket as well as fractures on his left shoulder blade, left arm and left hand. "I want to send this one out to Bono ... be well, my friend," Springsteen yelled after performing "Where the Streets Have No Name" and before launching into his second U2 song, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.". "Friends have stepped in to save U2's surprise World AIDS Day performance which was jeopardised by Bono's November 16 bike accident in Central Park," the band's website said. "Appearing at the personal invitation of U2, Springsteen and Martin have graciously donated their time and talents to save the World AIDS Day event from cancellation." Carrie Underwood also performed her songs "Change" and "Something in the Water" with U2, while Kanye West took his turn at the mic without the band.
