Bono - Bono Confident Spider-man Musical Will Survive

U2 frontman Bono is convinced his troubled SPIDER-MAN musical will survive for years to come and become a huge success after it closes in New York.

The curtain will fall on Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark in January (14) after three years on stage during which it suffered numerous delays and setbacks, as well as a ballooning budget which made it the most expensive Broadway production of all time.

Producers plan to open the show in Las Vegas and in Europe, and Bono, who wrote the score along with his U2 bandmate The Edge, believes the musical still has a chance to be a great success.

He says, "When you think of the difficult birth that we had with Turn Off the Dark... It's worked out so well. Three hugely successful years, and then it's off to Germany, it's off to Las Vegas. It was a lot more expensive than it should have been, but in the long term it will... do very, very well."

The production was plagued with cast injuries during its run, and producer Michael Cohl recently revealed theatre bosses made the difficult decision to close the show after the troubles left them unable to obtain the necessary insurance.
