Last week, on a rooftop in New York City, the band recorded an acoustic performance of  'Sunday Bloody Sunday' - and dedicated it to democracy in Iran.

The track is part of ONE's campaign to harness the power of protest songs to demand action against extreme poverty at the G8 summit.

Remember the amazing reaction to Sunday Bloody Sunday on the 360 tour?  Every night it went out in support of the Green Movement that sprang from the 2009/10 Iran elections. The response from across the world - including in Iran - was phenomenal.

As the 2013 elections approached, the band were asked by Iranian human rights activists to contribute their music again.  As Bono says, at the beginning of the performance, 'Greetings from New York City to the good people of Iran...'

Way To Go!
Another great job by U2! 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' has always been my very favourite song, and this acoustic version is just as awesome as the original! Fantastic work, as always.

Great acoustic version - loved it!
I agree with the other comments. Would love to hear an acoustic version of favorite U2 songs on an album/CD. This was a great performance of Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Amazing
Great version of a monument. It reminds me the live at Mexico City in 1997 during the PopMart tour.

Humanity!
What an incredible sound and version of this song! It's a classic, I've always loved the performance of my favourite 4 musicians in all the concerts, and here, well, don't get me wrong but I got a dejavu with Streets and its video. Only missing Adam with the bass... I agree with the other comment, any acoustic album on the horizon??? And again, one more chance to see there are angels on Earth walking, these guys do know how to move us, how to help others, how to make us realise so many things.

This is an amazing version of a song we all love. You made something familiar into a beautiful new version of what we already love so well. I fell in love with it all over again.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
