NEW YORK (AP) — New Yorkers have been running into Bono and his band, U2, all over town the past few days.

The group has been taping music and comedy bits to include in their Friday appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," where they'll be the only guests.

Lucky subway riders at Grand Central Terminal found the band on a train platform Monday performing "Angel of Harlem."

Elsewhere, Bono and Fallon were seen riding bikes in preparation for a comedy bit spoofing Bono's all-too-real bicycle crash in New York's Central Park a few months ago, which resulted in injuries that forced the band to cancel its scheduled weeklong "Tonight" engagement.

The band's world tour starts in Vancouver on May 14.
