Bono and the Edge Team up For a New Spider-Man Musical Before their 360 Tour
A lot of South Floridians were crushed when Bono had to reschedule U2 's July stop in Miami because of a back injury. The show was rescheduled for August of next year, but what are we supposed to do until then?
Bono and the Edge contributed the music and the lyrics for the new Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, which will begin its preview performances in New York on November 14. Yes, that Bono. But before you think it, this actually does sound like a storyline set to rock music, in a good way.
Bono and the Edge, along with the musical's director Julie Taymor, went on Good Morning America today to talk about the upcoming musical. The costume designs and performance by the lead actor Reeve Carvey and his band just got us that much more excited.
Watch Bono and the Edge talk about their inspirations behind the score for Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark below, along with a performance by actor, Reeve Carvey, playing Peter Parker in the musical.
