In an effort to promote their upcoming Broadway show beginning with previews in November Ireland’s greatest rock band U2 performed a song from the show at a recent concert in Portugal.
The song titled, "Boy Falls From the Sky,” is one of many from the upcoming show "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark.”
The production is a Bono/The Edge/Julie Traymor production. Previews begin on November 14 and open on December 21.
Peter Parker will be played by Reeve Carney. Carney is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He was born and raised in Southern California. Brought up in a musical family, he learned to play the piano before he took his first steps. His mother couldn’t afford guitar lessons while Reeve was growing up, so she took him to blues clubs. When Carney was eight years old, he sang at Avery Fisher Hall in Manhattan, and later got to sing with Michael Jackson. At the age of sixteen, he got the chance to perform at B.B King’s Blues club.
Julie Taymor first discovered Reeve at one of his band's shows, after which she asked him to audition for her film “The Tempest.”
Reeve continues to play shows, mostly in New York, with Carney. The rest of the band is currently rehearsing as part of the pit band for "Spider man".
