A section of 53rd Street in Manhattan was temporarily renamed to “U2 Way” in honor of the band and their week-long appearance on Letterman that same week.

Here’s a live take of No Line on the Horizon single “I’ll Go Crazy if I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” performed live featuring plenty of clips from the band’s 360 Tour:
