U2 and Allen Ginsberg?

I was recently reading an article on PBS's website about Allen Ginsberg, and toward the bottom it said:

"Among the collaborators of his final years were members of the bands Sonic Youth and U2."

Does anyone know what this collaboration was? I'd love to read or hear it!

Was he the old man in the "Last Night on Earth" video, or was that Burroughs?

I heard that he read they lyrics to Miami on tour?

Bono also read some of Allen's poems in the mid 90's.
