June 23 [10:00 EDT] — U2 was joined on stage by ex-Monkee Davy Jones Saturday in L.A.
U2 played the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles Saturday night, and the show featured a special guest, ex-Monkee Davy Jones. If you haven’t seen the Pop Mart tour, U2 guitarist The Edge regularly performs a karaoke version of the Monkees’ hit “Daydream Believer,” singing to a tape with the lyrics on the screen while the rest of the band takes a break mid-set.
This time, The Edge sang the first few lines and was then joined by Jones, the tune’s original vocalist. Jones finished off the song, much to the delight of the audience‹and much to the delight of Jones.
The show was opened by Rage Against the Machine. U2 now travels to Madison, Wisconsin, for June 25 and then on to multiple shows in Chicago and Boston before heading to Europe.
