NEW YORK (AP) - U2’s Bono is expected to attend Tuesday night’s performance of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" as speculation swirls over whether the troubled Broadway show’s opening night will be delayed again.

Bono, who wrote the music and lyrics with bandmate The Edge, hasn’t been able to critique the show since he stopped in to check on its progress in mid-January.

The $65 million show has been delayed five times and is supposed to open on March 15. Despite its woes, it is among the highest earners each week on Broadway.

Rick Miramontez, a show spokesman, said Tuesday that any decision about the future of "Spider-Man" would include producers and the creative team, led by director Julie Taymor.

Says Miramontez: "All decisions are made as a group."
