VIDEO: U2 - Bono & The Edge rock Letterman

U2’s Bono and The Edge stopped by David Letterman’s show Monday night to promote their Broadway production of “Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark.”

The show initially faltered in its early previews as reports of injuries to cast members and malfunctioning equipment dominated the headlines; things have since turned the corner and the show is currently doing big business in the Big Apple.

Letterman spoke with the U2 pair about several topics, including Bono’s health scare last year with his back issues; the success of the “One” campaign in helping the people of Africa; and, the 2-year long 360 tour.

While discussing songwriting, The Edge pulled out an acoustic guitar and the two delivered an impressive rendition of “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of” from 2000’s “All That You Can’t Leave Behind.”
