Irish rockers U2 thrilled fans by performing an impromptu gig to thank them for starring in the band's latest music video for forthcoming single CITY OF BLINDING LIGHTS.

The VERTIGO stars advertised on their official website U2.COM for fans to star in the promo, and 3,500 music lovers responded last Wednesday (27APR05) by queuing for seven hours at the General Motors Place venue in Vancouver, Canada to take part.

And fans were rewarded for their efforts, when the group's stage manager provided a stand-up routine and frontman Bono led the crowd in a 'Hokey Cokey' dance, before performing a succession of hits including ALL BECAUSE OF YOU and SOMETIMES YOU CAN'T MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN.
