Bono sings, MacPhisto returns for Jimmy Kimmel (RED) special

@U2

Bono sang and joked and even dressed up like his Zoo TV-era character MacPhisto during Tuesday night's special (RED) edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC. The second annual (RED) Shopathon raised money for the fight against AIDS and will likely top last year's event, which raised $28 million dollars.

We'll go in chronological order to recap Bono's involvement in the show:

Early on, he joined with Halsey and Herbie Hancock to sing an updated version of Cole Porter's "Well, Did You Evah?" with 2016-themed lyrics. They called the new song, "What A Year This Has Been!"

After that, Bono did an interview with host Jimmy Kimmel talking about recent progress in fighting AIDS. He also talked about the two special experiences he's involved in that are available as part of the (RED) contest through Omaze. Julia Roberts joined the second half of the chat, so there are separate video clips.

After the other special guests talked about their (RED) experiences, the show ended with one more musical performance -- a comedy/satire song called "We're Going To Hell." This one's of particular interest to U2 fans because it included Bono bringing his Zoo TV-era character MacPhisto back to life at the end of the tune, albeit with a slightly updated look.

Interesting, no!!?? Fans in our forum are talking about the return of MacPhisto -- feel free to chime in with your two cents.

All of this, by the way, was taped on Monday in Hollywood.
