Bono optimistic on Spider-Man show

U2 frontman Bono feels optimistic that his musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, will continue to thrive after the show turns the lights out on Broadway early next year.

He acknowledged that even though the show had its problems, it worked out well.

"Three hugely successful years, and then it's off to Germany, it's off to Las Vegas," Bono said on the red carpet for Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom.

The Spider-Man musical was Broadway's most expensive show, costing around 75 million US dollars (£46 million).

"It was a lot more expensive than it should have been, but in the long term it will - it will do very, very well," he said.

The musical turns off its lights at the Foxwoods Theatre on January 4.
