For the fifth year in a row, Bono performed on Christmas Eve, busking on the streets of his native Dublin with fellow Irish artists Glen Hansard from The Frames, Liam O'Maonlai from The Hothouse Flowers and singer-songwriter Mundy.

They sang Slade's “Merry Christmas Everyone” along with “O Come All Ye Faithful” while upwards of a thousand people gathered to watch. In the tradition of street performers everywhere, they passed a hat, with the proceeds going to The Simon Community, which assists homeless people.
