There have been rumors of a free U2 concert in New York for the past week or so, and now there's confirmation: Today, U2 will be performing at Empire Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, which is between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges at Plymouth and Washington Streets. MTV is filming the performance to coincide with publicity for U2's new album. For tickets, click here for 1iota.com's MTV surprise performance; arrival time is 2:30PM, the show starts at 3PM.

And did you see U2 on Saturday Night Live? They did three songs, and finished with "I Will Follow" finishing over the closing credits. Bono and The Edge went into the audience, who went wild. The cast was going crazy as well, and it seemed like U2 performed another song after that one.
