NEW YORK, May 6 (UPI) -- Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to orchestrate a U2 concert underground.

The Irish rock band set up shop near Grand Central Terminal and sang their hit song, "Angel of Harlem," on Monday.

Fans naturally got excited about the unexpected performance and documented it on social media.

The subway scene is set to premiere when Bono and the rest of the group make a guest appearance on the Tonight Show Friday.

Back in November, Bono had a bike accident that caused the band to cancel their weeklong residency. The Daily News reported that the famous singer and host were seen outside of Rockefeller center, filming a skit to reenact the bicycle incident that will also appear later this week.

Fallon has been on a musical roll lately. On Monday, he teamed up with Jack Black to recreate the "More Than Words" video.
