The annual busking tradition on Dublin's Grafton Street continued on Christmas Eve but instead of one or two artists surprising shoppings there were six.

U2 frontman Bono was joined by Hozier, Glen Hansard, Kodaline, Ronan Keating and The Script on the shopping street and a huge crowd gathered to catch a glimpse.

Hozier kicked off proceedings with Take Me to Church followed by U2's cover of When Love Comes to Town and then their song Every Breaking Wave from their latest Innocence + Experience album.

The artists performed to raise money for the Simon Community.


Merry Christmas from Dublin #Bono #GraftonStreet
