VIDEO OF THE DAY: U2 performs first song from 'Spider-Man' musical

By Michael Cavna

That's one way to resuscitate the buzz around your new Broadway musical.

Over the weekend in Portugal, U2 reportedly performed the first song from the superhero show "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark," the Bono/The Edge/Julie Taymor production that begins previews next month in New York. The first tune -- featured recently on the morning talk-show circuit -- is titled, "Boy Falls From the Sky."

The long-hampered, mega-million-dollar production announced last month that it will begin previews Nov. 14 and open Dec. 21. After a much-publicized casting call, Reeve Carney was cast as Peter Parker.
