NEW YORK (AP) — U2 will put on a special one-night show at New York’s historic Apollo Theater.

Howard Stern on Tuesday announced the invitation-only event for SiriusXM subscribers during his show on the satellite music service.

The company says U2 will play songs from its “Songs of Experience” album along with classics from its career.

Bono calls it a bucket-list moment and says it’s “an incredible honor” to play on the same stage in Harlem that has hosted the legends of soul.
