U2 took a break from their Innocence and Experience Tour to perform an intimate show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem on Monday night. The crowd of 1,500 invited guests included Harry Belafonte, John McEnroe, Steven Van Zandt, Noah Syndergaard and Jon Bon Jovi..
The set featured the Sun Ra Arkestra for four songs during an encore, and the band dedicated the song "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" to Anthony Bourdain.
Bono spoke of losing a
"lot of inspiring, useful people" over the past few years "who gave up on their own life. And now this great storyteller, who I'm sure has stories he couldn't tell us. So for Anthony Bourdain, and his friends and family this is a song inspired by a great, great, great friend of ours. His name is Michael Hutchence." U2 then played a version of “Stuck In a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of.”
The song was written by the band after INXS singer Hutchence committed suicide in 1997.
