U2 and Leonard Cohen

According to Yahoo! potentially Advanced U2 played with probably Advanced Leonard Cohen when they had some time off from touring obligations:

Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen, Jr., and Adam Clayton joined singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen at The Slipperoom Club in downtown Manhattan, where Bono and Cohen duetted on the Cohen track called "Tower Of Song," according to The performance was shot for a documentary being put together on Cohen. It wasn't the first time Bono has done a Cohen song. He did a version of Cohen's "Hallelujah" on the 1995 tribute album called Tower Of Song: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen. That project also featured Don Henley, Elton John, Billy Joel, and Peter Gabriel.
That's quite a line-up. I dont' know how Billy Joel found his way in that group, but for all I know Leonard Cohen is a huge fan of "In the Middle of the Night." I know I am.
