U2 Honors World AIDS Day With Secret Times Square Concert Tonight

TIMES SQUARE, New York CityThe band U2 is full of surprise concerts this year, with one to debut the iPhone 6, and now one to honor World AIDS Day tonight. The surprise concert lineup consisted of U2, Coldplay, Kanye West, and Carrie Underwood. At 7:30pm EST the concert kicked off, and is currently underway. The concert was free to all of those who cared to attend in Times Square, right in the heart of New York City. Even if you cannot attend in person, you can watch live on YouTube or listen on iHeart Radio.

The members of U2 went on stage tonight without Bono, who could not attend due to recent injuries he is still recovering from. This lineup dubbed themselves “U2 Minus 1″, which could almost just be called “U1″ if you think about it. Bono has worked hard the past couple of decades to help bring awareness of AIDS to the world, and to be an ambassador for those in need. This type of gig is something to be expected from U2. Other acts surprised concert goers, such as Kanye West who is sort of an odd mash-up with the other performers. Some even wonder if he was just invited to be the token black guy to perform at the event.

Concerts like this one are a great way to build awareness by merging the fans of the artists with the message portrayed from the event. Those who listen to the free event will be partially educated on what they can do t help reduce the spread of the HIV/AIDS virus, and how they can make an impact for those who still need treatment for it.

Bank of America has sponsored this concert to benefit the RED foundation. The main stage is draped with a banner that reads the hash tag “#OneStep4Red”. By tagging that hash tag into your concert pics and related posts, you too (not U2) can help spread the word.
