VIDEO. War in Ukraine: Bono of the group U2 sings peace in the Kiev metro

After Sting, Julian Lennon or Tom Odell, it’s Bono’s turn to sing in the name of the freedom of the Ukrainian people. Shed light on her moving and hopeful performance in these uncertain times.

More than two months after the start of the Russian military offensive, the fighting continues. In this violent war context, initiatives in support of Ukrainians are increasing. The latest example, this Sunday, May 8, 2022, featured the well-known Irish rocker Bono giving a surprise concert at the Khreshchatyk metro station in Kiev. By his side the second star of the group U2, The Edge. In the audience dozens of men, women and children have become accustomed to taking refuge to protect themselves from the bombing.

“President Volodymyr Zelensky invited us to perform in Kiev as a show of solidarity with the Ukrainian people, and that’s what we came to do

Bono and The Edge, on Twitter

Bono and The Edge played many of their hits, such as With or without youSunday Bloody Sunday and Fear of heights† They also took over Stay with me by Ben E. King and turned it into Stand by Ukraine† Songs with symbolic lyrics and a moving show in the name of peace and freedom.

Watch (a video shared by Odessa Film Studio):

As a reminder, a few weeks ago, Bono already expressed his support for the Ukrainian people by dedicating his song walking on “to the brave Ukrainian people fighting for their freedom and ours”. Here are the lyrics:

And love ain’t easy
And love ain’t easy
The only luggage you can take with you
The only luggage you can take with you
And love ain’t easy
And love ain’t easy
The only luggage you can take with you
The only luggage you can take with you
Is everything you can’t leave behind (1)
It’s everything you can’t leave behind (1)

And if the darkness must keep us apart
And if the darkness must part us
And when the daylight feels like it’s still far away
And when the daylight seems far away
And if your glass heart were to burst
And if your heart were to break glass
And for a second you return
And that, just for a moment, you take a step back
Oh no, be strong
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on (2)
keep walking, keep walking (2)
They can’t steal what you have
They can’t take what you have
No, they can’t even feel it
No, they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on…
Keep walking, keep walking…
stay safe tonight
Stay safe tonight

You pack a suitcase for a place none of us have been
You pack your things for a place no one has been before
A place you have to believe to be seen
A place you have to believe to see
You could have flown away
You could have run away
A singing bird in an open cage
A bird that sings in an open cage
Who will fly alone, fly alone for freedom
Who will fly alone, who will fly alone to freedom
Ooh !
Ooh !

Walk on, walk on
Keep walking, keep walking
They can’t deny what you have
They can’t argue with what you have
Can’t sell it, can’t buy it
They can’t sell it, not even buy it
Walk on, walk on
Keep walking, keep walking
stay safe tonight
Stay safe tonight

And I know it hurts
And I know it hurts
And your heart breaks
And your heart breaks
And you can only take so much
And you can only take too much
Walk on, walk on
Keep walking, keep walking

At home…hard to know what it is, if you’ve never had one
House…hard to know what it is, if you’ve never had one
Home… I can’t tell where it is, but I know I’m going home
Home…can’t tell where it is but I know I’m coming home
That’s where the pain is
This is where the evil lies

i know it hurts
i know it hurts
How your heart breaks
How your heart breaks
And you can only take so much
And you can only take too much
Walk on, oh!
Keep walking, oh!

leave it behind
leave it behind
You have to leave it
You have to leave that behind
Everything you fashion
Everything you shape
Everything you make
everything you make
Everything you build
everything you build
Everything you break
everything you destroy
Everything you measure
everything you measure
Everything you steal
everything you steal
You can leave all this behind
You can leave all this behind
Everything you reason
Everything you conclude
Everything you feel
everything you feel
Everything you speak
everything you say
Everything you dress up
Everything you wear
Everything you plan…
Everything you plan…
