[Watch] U2 & Jay-Z - "Scarlet" (Live in NZ)

When I first heard that Jay-Z and U2 were going to tour together I was a little taken a back. I didn't see how the 2 came togetehr and how even if they did talk of a tour with one another would arise. Maybe a few too many single malts or something, who knows. But, it's happened and they are currently over in New Zealand touring for 10 dates (which you can see after the jump). U2 and Jay-Z paid tribute to the 29 miners who tragically lost their lives too saying "People have ways of dealing with grief. In Ireland we sing." And sing they did performing "Scarlet" for the first time in well, a hell of a long time! You can watch the performance up top thanks to Consequence Of Sound, it features Jay-Z and will please some long serving U2 fans no end.
