Bono and The Edge played a few songs on the platform at Deutsche Oper to wrap up their appearance, which follows the release of U2's new album Songs Of Experience.

Bono and The Edge surprised local fans in Germany Wednesday by giving them a private concert on board Berlin's U2 subway line.

As well as playing one song from their new album "Songs of Experience", they also performed two of their best-known hits, "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "One".

The band has something of a history with Berlin, having recorded much of their 1991 album Achtung Baby at the city's Hansa studios, seeking inspiration at the time of German reunification.

Songs of Experience, which dropped December 1, via Interscope Records in the USA, is on track to become U2's eighth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
