After winning the "Top Touring Artist Award" at the 2011 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS on SUNDAY night 5/22, U2 members BONO and the EDGE are set to perform on the "American Idol" season 10 finale this WEDNESDAY.
An announcement posted on U2.com confirms that the bandmates will appear alongside cast members of the BROADWAY musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," which is currently back in revamped form and running in previews with one new song, and classic hits from the band, woven into the production. BONO and the EDGE are the show's composers.
The previous director of the musical, JULIE TAYMOR, left the production, and co-director PHILIP WILLIAM MCKINLEY was brought in to redirect portions of the show. The musical's book was revised, and previews have begun with the official opening scheduled for JUNE 14th, 2011.
