U2 performed an exclusive concert for SiriusXM subscribers Monday night at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. The band treated audience members to an 18-song set, opening with “I Will Follow” from their 1980 debut album “Boy.”

While Howard wasn’t able to attend the special show, he did get a shout-out during their performance of “Vertigo” later in the night. “This is for you Howard Stern,” Bono announced in a nod to the King of All Media.

Amy — the Stern Show fan who won tickets to the concert after succeeding in a tough game featuring Asian Pete — called in live Tuesday morning to tell Howard all about her experience.

“It was amazing. It was magical,” she said of the one-of-a-kind evening. “You would’ve loved it.”

Noted U2 fan Fred Norris could not be at the concert due to his work duties, but did send his wife in his stead who “enjoyed herself immensely,” he told Howard.

U2’s performance will air on Howard 101 Wednesday night at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT. Tune in to hear the full epic concert!
