Bono recently admitted he agreed with reviews of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark which described the show as “among the worst” musicals ever made.

The musical suffered a series of mishaps before it was revamped including injuries to cast members and financial difficulties.

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is reportedly the most expensive show in Broadway history, with a cost so far of $70 million (£48 million).
