Christmas Eve Busk Video

I'm a bit late putting this up, but I think you U2 peeps will enjoy this. It's a professional behind the scenes video of the 2012 Christmas Eve Busk on Grafton St, Dublin. It shows Bono rehearsing with the others earlier in the day and then singing Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) on at the busk. It also features a very chatty Sinead O' Connor singing Nothing Compares 2 U, plus songs from Liam O'Maonlai, Lisa Hannigan and Glen Hansard. It also has clips of Dublin and the ordinary people which just captures the feel of it all.

At the end Glen and some of the others are in Neary's having a pint and counting the money they got from the busk for the Simon Community. Shame Bono couldn't have joined them, I'm sure he would have loved to, but he was whisked off in a police car. Fame separates you. The video is about 15 minutes long and a lovely snapshot of the event.
