Bono accepted the We Are Family Foundation's Humanitarian Award at a gala event Friday night in New York City, and took the stage to perform four U2 songs, too. The award is given to "a person in the public eye who has made tremendous efforts and inroads into making the human condition better throughout the world." Previous recipients include Sir Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Trudie Styler and others.
But the highlight of the night was when Bono joined Nile Rodgers (the foundation's founder) and Chic for a four-song set featuring some of U2's biggest hits: "Pride," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "Beautiful Day" and "Mysterious Ways."
@U2's Karen Lindell was at the event taking photos and providing fans with a Periscope livestream of the live performance. Here are a couple of her tweets/photos, and you can visit @U2 Tours for more on the show and links to videos from the event.
