Published: Friday 29th of May 2009
The Irish band U2 have made an appearance at a gig in London, much to the surprise of concert goers.
They took to the stage of the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire with Baaba Maal, who was performing a concert to mark the 50th anniversary of Island Records.
Bono, the Edge, Larry Mullen Jr and Adam Clayton joined the African singer on stage to perform a version of their hit single One.
The band's front man Bono then told the crowd "we've got one more in us", before the group launched into a version of their song Vertigo.
