Bono’s annual Christmas Eve busking event in Dublin, Ohio, brought out some big names

As he’s been doing the past few years, U2 singer Bono performed on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, on Christmas Eve to with a handful of other Irish musicians to raise funds for charity.  U2 fan AtU2.com reports Bono appeared with Hozier, the Script and members of Kodaline to play music on Dublin’s Grafton Street, the city’s shopping thoroughfare.

Bono performed the U2 songs “When Love Come to Town” and “Every Breaking Wave,” as well as the Christmas tune “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Following Bono’s performance, Hozier performed his chart-topped “Take Me to Church.” Glen Hansard, who is known for his role in the movie Once, appeared, as well.

The AtU2 Twitter feed posted various links to videos and photos of Bono and the gang. Meanwhile, a short fan-filmed clip of the event is streaming via Periscope.tv.

Bono started this busking tradition on Christmas Eve in 2009 on Grafton Street. He continued the event for five consecutive years, but wasn’t able to participate in 2014 because of being injured in a biking accident in New York’s Central Park that year.
