RNR News and Notes

Did you happen to see any Christmas Carolers this year?  Chances are - they weren't as epic as the ones on Grafton Street in Dublin on Christmas Eve ... That's where U2's Bono and The Edge were caught busking for the first time in three years as part of Simon Community’s annual all-star fundraising event to aid Ireland’s homeless.

 

The two were joined by other singers, including event organizer Glen Hansard of The Swell Season, Damien Rice, and Imelda May.  

 

Bono and The Edge performed "Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” from their latest album Songs of Experience, traditional carols  “O Holy Night” and “O Night Divine”, and a cover of Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”  with Hansard, Rice, and May.

 

Another highlight of the event was Damien Rice's cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”
