VIDEO: Bono Sings Unreleased "Walk On" in June 2000

Here’s a great find from video of Bono singing an unfinished demo version of “Walk On” about four months before the song was released on All That You Can’t Leave Behind.

The video is from June 23, 2000, when a group called TROCAIRE organized a small birthday party/event in Dublin in honor of Aung San Suu Kyi (whose birthday is June 19). There’s a longer video of the whole event on YouTube, but U2Valencia edited it down to just the couple minutes where Bono is singing an obviously unfinished version of “Walk On.”

Very cool discovery — one that I missed in U2-A Diary. So, hopefully someday there’ll be another update to the book and I can add this.
