The former Oasis guitarist joined the band onstage during the band’s O2 Arena show on October 26, performing their hit ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ before segueing into a cover of The Beatles’ ‘All You Need Is Love’.
Gallagher joined the Irish four-piece at the end of their two-hour-plus show on acoustic guitar and backing vocals.
“I’d like to bring out of one my heroes, one of the band’s heroes to help us out with this next song. Will you welcome to the stage the high flying bird himself Noel Gallagher,” Bono announced to the crowd before Gallagher took to the stage.
Now speaking to Audioboom, Gallagher said: “It was a dream come true to be asked to get up [on stage] with them and then it was a dream come true to be asked to sing that song [‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’].”
“They’re friends of mine. I’ve been friends with Bono for about 20 years. It was a great moment. I was stood in the wings and they were introducing me and I was thinking ‘This is actually going to happen now, this is amazing’. They are one of my favourite ever, ever bands and that’s one of the best songs ever written. It was a blast, a real honour.”
Gallagher added: “I thought my catering was pretty good until I was at U2 the other night, which was honestly something else.”
Gallagher was spotted on the tube travelling to the U2 gig where he later made a cameo.
