Bruce Springsteen, Chris Martin Perform with U2 at World AIDS Day Concert: The Boss Sings 'Joshua Tree' Classics [WATCH]

Buzz 13:20PM EDT

It is not an easy task to fill in for an iconic frontman like Bono on epics like "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" from U2's "The Joshua Tree," but leave it to Bruce Springsteen to make it look easy. The Boss joined the band onstage last night, Dec. 1, for the A (RED) Thank You concert. Bono could not make the World AIDS Day performance due to a recent bicycle accident, but Springsteen and Coldplay's Chris Martin were quick to help. Kanye West and Carrie Underwood also performed. Had Springsteen decided to where some shades, he would have looked just like the Irish frontman. The Boss strolled out on stage during The Edge's shimmering guitar intro to "Where the Streets Have No Name" and looked supremely confident. Springsteen brought a little of that hardened, New-Jersey grit to the Joshua Tree hit. The band opted for another classic from the 1987 album with "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," which Springsteen dedicated to Bono. Both performances were superb. Check them out in the video below. Former President Bill Clinton introduced U2 with Martin. They ran through 2000's "Beautiful Day" and 1987's "With or Without You."READ MORE

Kanye West, Carrie Underwood and a special configuration of U2 will all be playing the A (RED) Thank You concert tonight, Dec. 1, for World AIDS Day. Bono's organization planned the event in Times Square, but because of his recent bike accident, the iconic frontman will have to sit this one out. Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay's Chris Martin will take turns fronting the Irish rock outfit, which will be billed as "U2 Minus 1." The festivities, presented by Bank of America, start at 7:30 p.m. and we have a live stream of the concert below. (RED) was founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver. The organization has raised more than $275 million since its inception for the fight against AIDS. According to (RED)'s website, the world is closer to raising its first AIDS-free generation with special treatments that prevent the disease from spreading from a mother to her child. Tonight's concert is to celebrate the work that has been done so far and promote the cause in order to eradicate the disease. "This year is a World AIDS Day like no other," Bono said in a statement. "The world reached a tipping point in the fight against AIDS — more people were newly added to life-saving treatment than were newly infected with the virus." According to U2's website, Springsteen and Martin "graciously donated their time and talents to save the World AIDS Day event from cancellation."READ MORE
