The night was perfectly summed up in a pic posted to Instagram.
Brian brought a sign that read “I Play Guitar” and held up from the front row knowing that the band likes to bring up someone from the crowd every night. He fully expected this to work out. And it did… only WAY better than he could have imagined.
He’s not able to play guitar, which Bono says the band is ok with.
Though they did dress the part, wearing uncharacteristically bohemian clothes.
“I really used to think that my head was harder than any surface it came in contact with, and I don’t anymore. I didn’t come off a Harley-Davidson,” Bono says of his accident. “I came off a push bike and smashed myself to bits. There is no glory here.”
Musicians and humanitarians Bono, Annie Lennox, Sting, Shakira and many more have banded together to put out a call to action.
We may have gotten that U2 album for free, but Nick Mason thinks Apple should pay for what they did.
Bono explained a lot in a message to fans that he posted to U2’s website, including that his guitar playing days may be over. But “the band have reminded me that neither they nor Western civilization are depending on this.”
Montreal, Chicago, Boston and New York each get a new pair of shows.
The rocker called in to KROQ to discuss U2’s future plans and what Bono’s accident means for them.
