U2 Rocks Jimmy Kimmel Live!

U2 visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! this evening, performing two songs and chatting for most of the show with host Jimmy Kimmel. With over 200 in the studio audience, the band was joined by the Selah Gospel Choir for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and closed out the show with "The Little Things That Give You Away." Prior to the performances, the band talked about The Joshua Tree reissue and tour, as well as Songs Of Experience. Bono blamed Edge for the delay of the new album, to which Edge jokingly said that it'll be out within 27 years. Kimmel also asked the band about their 1987 alter egos, The Dalton Brothers, which prompted Bono to sing an abbreviated, a cappella version of "Lucille" -- one of the songs The Daltons used to sing as U2's opening act (and a song which they hadn't sung since December 12, 1987).

Kimmel asked the band about the tragedy in Manchester, England. Bono talked about how terrible it was and how wonderful it was to see so many people helping each other. Bono was also asked about his feelings about U.S. President Donald Trump. Bono said he respected and understood the frustrations of the Republicans who voted for him, but that Trump isn't the person we need in power right now.

During the commerical breaks, Bono spoke with Kimmel's security guard, Guillermo, about how the Irish and Mexicans are similar.

The show will air tonight on ABC television at 11:35 pm EDT / 10:35 CDT.
