The New York Times reports the U2 frontman was joined by guitarist The Edge, who also co-wrote the music for the show, but had already seen the musical.  So far, the singer hasn't made his opinion of the show public, but sources say he seemed in good spirits after the performance.

The show, which cost a record $65 million to create, has been riddled with problems, including numerous cast member injuries.  Even so, the show is consistently selling out its preview performances and has racked up $1.88 million in ticket sales already.  Opening night is scheduled for Feb. 7 at the Foxwoods Theater in New York City.
