U2 frontman, Bono and guitarist, The Edge have gotten into the festive spirit recently, performing a special in-studio rendition of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” during Ireland’s Late Late Show holiday edition.

The classic track was originally released by Darlene Love and also included on the 1963 holiday compilation album, A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector.

The pair shared their cover of the song, in tribute to the Ireland’s annual Christmas Eve Grafton Street Busk, joined by local musicians for the performance that also included a stripped-down version of their 2000 hit “Walk On.” Watch below.

Along with the performance, Bono and the Edge chatted with host Ryan Tubridy about U2’s incredible $10 million euro donation to Ireland’s COVID-19 relief efforts, namely providing PPE to frontline workers, saying: “If we can’t be really useful, let’s find the people who are and try to get them protective wear.”

“We’re so fortunate, and so many people were far more impacted than we were, but actually it’s the people risking their lives to help others, they really needed support and deserved support.”
