Watch: Spider-Man’s Reeve Carney, Bono and The Edge in the Music Video for “Rise Above”

We’re still talking about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark?  The big Broadway musical that could is still in the news these days, selling lots of tickets despite so-so reviews and the fact that the “new and improved” safer show has more-or-less eliminated the what were once daily accidents that people seemed to buy tickets just to catch a possible glimpse of.  Maybe this Spider-Man kid has a future in showbiz after all.


Still, the recent strong ticket sales doesn’t mean the show — along with the recently released original cast recording soundtrack — couldn’t use a bit of promotion so in a rare move a music video of one of the show’s signature songs, “Rise Above 1”, has been created.  The video stars Reeve Carney, the on-stage Peter Parker, along with songwriters Bono and The Edge of U2.  In fact, you may not notice that the video is actually a duet between Carney and Bono since Carney sounds remarkably like the U2 frontman, which goes to show you that if his Broadway career doesn’t work out Carney could also make a few bucks in a U2 tribute band.  It also shows some behind-the-scenes footage of the cast soaring through the theater, and thankfully there’s no accidents here.  Although Bono and The Edge aren’t typically at the Foxwoods Theater performing with Carney, it’s a great way to promote the show (yet I’m pretty sure anyone who wants to know already knows that the U2 duo wrote the show’s songs).
