The performance was part of Global Citizen’s special coronavirus fundraiser event, which was lead by Lady Gaga and raised almost $128million (£102million).
Dozens of artists joined the cause last night including The Rolling Stones, Lizzo, Stevie Wonder, and Taylor Swift while Beyoncé also joined the stream to make an emotional speech about the effects of the virus.
The fate of the band’s subsequent run of US dates is still yet to be confirmed, however the group suspended ticket sales back in March.
Sharing a statement on social media, the band said: “The news is changing every hour around coronavirus,” and that they want their fans “to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now.”
