Surprise! Michael Buble Performs in the Subway and Other Great Impromptu Concerts

The singer took a cue from U2 and Aerosmith and promoted his new album in a very cool, unexpected way

Michael Buble made an unexpected stop to promote his new album, To Be Loved: the New York City subway system! The 37-year-old Grammy-winner held an impromptu acapella show underground while joined by the band Naturally 7. The surprise concert took place at the W. 66 Street stop, and he performed his new ballad, "Who's Lovin' You." Watch it below!

While this is definitely an adorable event, Buble isn't the only one to surprise fans with an unexpected appearance. In 2004, U2 performed in the back of a flatbed truck as the band drove around New York City to record footage for a music video. Around 3,000 people showed up to watch the performance, which lasted for more than 45 minutes. The event came the night before U2's then-new album, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, was released. Watch below.

More recently, Aerosmith performed at a special Boston show the week before the 2012 election to rally fans both to vote and to buy their new album, Music From Another Dimension. The band ended up closing down a street in Boston for the show while their fans swarmed for the free concert. Here's a clip:

Also in anticipation of an album release, rapper Kendrick Lamar took to the streets outside of the Staples Center in Los Angeles in October 2012 to give an unexpected performance for fans. He sang songs off his debut LP, good kid, m.A.A.d city, as well as some older hits for the hundreds of people who showed up. Apparently, Lamar didn't get the approval of the city before he decided to perform, because police later arrived to shut down the show. Check it out:
