The special guests at U2's concert Thursday night included Paul Simon, Lou Reed's widow and the woman who called 911 when Bono fell off his bike in New York City last year.
Simon joined U2 onstage at Madison Square Garden to sing some of his song, "Mother and Child Reunion." Before Bono kicked off the tune, he pointed out that Simon was in the crowd, and the audience roared as Simon entered the stage.
Bono also noted that Reed's widow, musician Laurie Anderson, was in the audience of 20,000. The band performed Reed's "Satellite of Love" as a video of the late icon singing the song appeared onscreen.
Bono, who crashed his bike in Central Park and suffered multiple injuries last year, called out the woman who dialed 911 and the firefighters who responded to the call.
"Here's what happened: I was running in Central Park, there was an accident, obviously I had to stop and help because I'm not from New York, I'm from Virginia, where people are nice," she said as the audience booed as she tried to finish the story.
Bono completed surgery after suffering fractures to his left eye socket, shoulder blade and left elbow following his fall.
