U2 members Bono and The Edge shared an acoustic version of Led Zeppelin’s iconic 1971 song, “Stairway To Heaven,” which they debuted during an appearance on “Songs From An Empty Room” in Ireland, which saw performances by a number of Irish acts.
The U2 duo played the song as a tribute to their road crew while everyone is off the road due to the global pandemic. “Songs From An Empty Room” also served as a benefit for members of the Irish music industry, with proceeds from the music TV event going to support two local initiatives: Minding Creative Minds and the Association of Irish Stage Technicians (AIST) Hardship Fund.
“Stairway To Heaven” appeared on Led Zeppelin’s 1971 release, “Led Zeppelin IV”; one of the best-selling albums in music history, which sold more than 37 million copies worldwide, including 23 million in the US alone.
