U2 Performs 'Desire' with Tribute Band

(Radio.com) Irish rock legends U2 continue to redefine themselves on the band's current iNNOCENCE & eXPERIENCE tour 2015, from a revolutionary sound system to taking chances onstage, including a recent stop in Toronto where they invited a local U2 tribute band to join them during the show.

The lucky band in question is known as Acrobat, named after a song on U2's 1991 classic, Achtung Baby. After welcoming them to the stage, the two bands merged to play the Rattle and Hum single, "Desire," with actual members of U2 (other than The Edge, who played along) eventually ceding the stage to Acrobat to enjoy the performance from the pit.

Among the members of Acrobat include one Mark Baker, a self-proclaimed U2 super-fan who is also the star of documentary film, U2 Brothr, a chronicle of his life as one of the band's biggest followers in the world. Watch it in its entirety here.
