Sorry to burst your bubble, U2 fans – the viral video of Bono singing “With or Without You” along High Street in Bonifacio Global City was not a free concert from the world-famous frontman. While still incredibly talented, the singer in the video was actually professional Bono impersonator, Pavel Sfera, and the “free show” was actually filmed 5 months ago.
As we approach tonight’s highly anticipated U2 concert in the Philippine Arena, the video helped build extra hype by adding to recent news of U2 being spotted out and about in the country’s metro capital. Another recent viral post showed the band grabbing lunch in Rockwell.
The video was re-uploaded on Tuesday. It was originally posted five months ago.
Both local musician Tek Cortez and Sfera give the crowd an amazing show.
So while you didn’t miss the “real thing”, you still have a chance to catch “Bono” around BGC, even after the concert.
