Irish band U2 performed a cover of THE Beatles classic NORWEIGAN WOOD yesterday (08DEC05) to commemorate the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's murder.

The ELEVATION hitmakers, currently on the US leg of their VERTIGO tour, also played Lennon solo song INSTANT KARMA, and frontman BONO sang a snippet of HELP! during the set at the Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

IMAGINE star Lennon was killed in December 1980 outside his New York City apartment building by crazed fan Mark David Chapman.
