VIDEO: U2 performs ‘Spider-Man’ song for the first time

The U2 tour hit Portugal this week, and the band performed “Boy Falls From the Sky,” a song from the upcoming Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” that’s titled like a headline from the Daily Bugle , contains some Icarus imagery and (to my ear) feels like a sonic sidekick to their earlier superhero venture, “Hold Me, Kiss Me, Thrill Me, Kill Me.” Here’s some YouTube video that might make you seasick.
