Hollywood: It was widely reported that U2 was in town over the weekend working on some super special project that could relate to a Superbowl commercial.

In a star filled Hollywood hotel ballroom, Bono, The Edge and 300 other guests attended Sean Penn's third annual Help Haiti Home benefit, which raised nearly $6 million for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

The surprise of the evening was a performance by U2. The Edge and Bono performed an acoustic set with Anaelle Jean-Pierre and followed up the evening with three songs. 

It is hard to keep a secret in Hollywood however; this kept tight under wraps. Did the Hollywood elite get a chance to hear three band new songs? No sorry three songs where Hallelujah, Desire and Vertigo.  We expect to see today photos and maybe some audio from the evening. We can say one thing for sure. U2 marketing machine is under way, watch for something big to hit the streets very soon.
