U2 performed in Times Square New York last night, the first
time they have played live in the US for three years

Performing from the balcony of the MTV building in Manhattan, the band played Elevation, New York and Beautiful Day, from All That You Can't Leave Behind, their ninth studio album released in the US today, (Oct 31st).

Unlike the recent rooftop show in Dublin, where the band could just about be seen from street level, for this show, it was difficult to see any band members apart from Edge - until Bono leaned over the balcony during Beautiful Day.

Some lucky fans, who arrived early, were invited to the sixth-floor balcony and a prime site to see the short set.  

The show was the latest in a series of mini-performances from U2 to mark the launch of the new album.  Dublin, Paris, New York.....where next ?
