U2 played their “secret” Boston show tonight at the Somerville Theatre, dazzling the intimate local crowd with cuts from their new #1 album ‘No Line on the Horizon’.

After some banter with the crowd Bono introduced radio friendly cut “I’ll Go Crazy, If I Don’t Crazy Tonight”. U2 ended the show with 2005′s hit single, “Vertigo”.
U2 then took questions from the audience, sharing experiences from past tours.

Unfortunately, Long Beach, CA band Sublime didn’t find mainstream success until after lead singer/songwriter Bradley Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. Though drummer Bug Gaugh and bassist Eric Wilson would form Long Beach Dub Allstars with members of the band’s extended family, they never attempted a “proper” sort of reunion. After a small show featuring Gaugh’s new band, Del Mar, he took the stage with Wilson and a singer known only as “Rome”. The trio played a set of Sublime classics, as well as a new song to an enthusiastic crowd.
Del Mar’s MySpace page confirms the reunion and adds to speculation of a full tour: “we’re ******* stoked for Bud, Eric and Rome … Bud’s still playing with Del Mar, and Sublime doesn’t have any firm tour plans or anything YET, but we’ll keep you posted on their progress.”
