Bono @ New Yorkers against violence

Our reader Brian reports from the second night of the Beastie Boys’ ‘New Yorkers Against Violence’ concert: “Moby and Michael Stipe performed a short acoustic set toward the end of the show (right before the Beastie Boys). They closed with a sweet rendition of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” when BONO casually strolled on stage to sing the end. The crowd went nuts. I nearly went unconscious.”

We expect more to appear about the concert at the Beastie Boys website. Other e-mail reports suggest a Velvet Underground cover was sung, and Bono came out carrying a sign that said ‘Helpless’. (thanks Matt)
