Bono and actor/singer/guitarist Glen Hansard singing Christmas songs on Grafton St. in Dublin to raise money for the homeless.

Hopefully Bono is reaching into his own pocket to help as well.

Watch them sing Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” and “Oh Come All Ye Faithful.”

Thanks Stereogum!!

One thought on “Watch: Bono Busking for the Homeless on the Dublin Streets

  1. this part about bono “reaching into his own pocket to help as well” is a salient one. for some reason, i find this guy’s whole schtick lacking legitimacy. his tours are the biggest oil guzzling on the planet. and it all the shmoozing of public leaders feels very self serving.
