If you were in BGC last night, then you might have been lucky enough to get a front-row seat to Bono’s solo “With or Without You” performance. But did you? 

On Tuesday night, just one day before U2’s highly anticipated concert at Philippine Arena, an impersonator who looked a hell of a lot like Bono took to the mic and crashed the busker’s set to give BGC a night to remember. The busker uploaded the video online and many assumed it was the real Bono in the flesh. 

However, a closer look shows that the impersonator is actually professional Bono impersonator Pavel Sfera, and the video was re-uploaded after being originally published five months ago.

In the viral video below, "Bono" performs U2’s hit song “With or Without You” to a crowd of  lucky onlookers. No autotune here, folks. This impersonator needs none of that.

The local musician who uploaded the video is Tek Cortez.

Check out the full performance below.

It might not have been the real Bono, but that was still a pretty good performance. 

Catch the real Bono tonight at U2's first-ever Manila show at Philippine Arena.
