Footage of Bono busking in Dublin over Christmas has emerged online - scroll down and click below to view a clip of him singing 'Silent Night'.

The U2 frontman hit Grafton Street in the Irish capital for his annual festive fundraising performance on December 24, where he was joined by Damien Rice and The Frames singer Glen Hansard.

However, according to the Daily Star, local police didn't recognise the famous trio and tried to move them on.

The 'source' commented:

He was surprised when the police tried to stop him. Bono found the funny side though and the issue was soon resolved.


The 'mole' continued: "Although he always dresses down for the tradition, it was strange the police failed to spot one of the nation’s most iconic men."

Earlier this month, Bono claimed he can't stand to listen to his own voice and thinks he sounds "like a girl".

However, despite his reservations about his singing, U2's global 360° jaunt was named the highest-earning tour of 2011 after grossing $293 million (£186 million) across 44 sold-out gigs over the past 12 months.
