Bono busks on Christmas Eve again


Like last year, Bono has gone busking on Christmas Eve in Dublin. He performed with a number of other artists on Grafton Street, including Damien Dempsey, Damien Rice, and Glen Hansard.

This video below shows them performing White Christmas and Happy Xmas (War Is Over):



Bono modifies some of the lyrics of White Christmas, including a muffled reference to "fucking snow". This is just the second time Bono has sung either song in full live; both previous performances were in the late eighties with the rest of U2. Happy Xmas has been snippeted multiple times, but its sole full performance was an acoustic version for Irish TV on 16 December 1988. White Christmas's previous appearance was exactly a year later, during the third Lovetown Dortmund show on 16 December 1989.

It also appears that Bono and the buskers performed One, like they did in 2009. See this video:
