Jimmy Fallon and The Roots Perform as U2

Watch Jimmy Fallon and The Roots Pretend to Be U2 and Perform

U2 was scheduled for an entire week of performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but thanks to an unfortunate bicycling accident in NYC, an injured Bono and the group had to cancel. So, what do you do if your musical act can't make it? Well, if you're Jimmy Fallon, you pick up some rose-colored sunglasses and strap on your guitar. Fallon accompanied his house band, The Roots, for a rousing rendition of U2's 1997 hit "Desire." That's right. Not only did the audience get to see Benedict Cumberbatch debut a new game, but they also got to see Fallon rock out. Can't wait to see what happens tonight!
