(hennemusic) U2 performed their 1983 single, "Two Hearts Beat As One", for the first time in 26 years on Monday during their sixth show at New York's Madison Square Garden and fan filmed video taken from the front row has surfaced online.

Last played at Dublin's Point Debut in December 1989, the song was the second single issued from the band's third album, 1983's "War." Upon its release, "Two Hearts" was a No. 2 smash in their native Ireland and a Top 20 hit in the UK.

It's not the first rarity of the "Innocence + Experience" tour: the group delivered their 1981 track, "Gloria", for the first time in 10 years during a June 28 show in Chicago.

Monday's concert is one of 8 shows at Madison Square Garden that will see U2 wrap up the North America leg of the 2015 tour on July 31. Watch the fan video of the "Two Hearts Beat As One" performance here.
