By Matthew Strauss, Pitchfork Media
Since 2009, Bono has busked in Dublin on Christmas Eve for Ireland's homeless and housing charity Simon Community. Unfortunately, he couldn't perform last year, as he was recovering from surgery for injuries suffered in a serious cycling injury. This year, he returned to the streets to perform with an ensemble that included Glen Hansard, Hozier, and more. Watch them do U2's "When Love Comes to Town" and "Every Breaking Wave" below, via Stereogum.
U2 recently played a pair of shows in Paris for an HBO special. One night, they brought out Patti Smith to pay tribute to the victims of the November 13 attacks. The next night, they played two songs with Eagles of Death Metal.
U2's last album, Songs of Innocence, came out in 2014.
