Bono still isn't offering any details on the medical incident or condition that nearly took his life recently (story), but he does reference it starting about 2:50 into this short film he narrates.
Bono paused before U2 did Running to Stand Still at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena Saturday (5/20) and said, 'For The lion that was, Chris Cornell'. Before the Joshua Tree Tour concert began, the massive speaker system cranked out Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun and the crowd of 100,000 responded by lofting cell phone screens in tribute to Cornell.
The preview trailer captures a defiant U2 delivering an exceptionally powerful performance when they returned to Paris to play a concert that had originally been scheduled to take place the day after the terrorist attacks on the city last November.
The Edge took a frightening fall off of U2's new touring stage during the opening night of the Irish band's 2015 world tour on Thursday (5/14) in Vancouver. Ironically, the fall came as he meandered along the edge of the stage's runway while playing I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. Evidently, that would be the edge. He later posted an Instagram photo of a scrape on his arm the fall caused.
The sequel to the giant Claw U2 last toured on is a much more spartan at first glance - but it appears to have a good deal of technology built into it.
Some commuters boarding trains at Grand Central Station on Monday evening (5/5) caught a surprise performance by U2. The band set-up busker style on a trin platform beneath the station and did a trio of tunes, Beautiful Day, Angel Of Halem and Song For Someone. The group will guest on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Friday.
As predicted (story), Jimmy Fallon wasn't about to go about his Monday Tonight Show without delivering a send-up to Bono, whose bicycle crash in Central Park forced U2 to postpone its week-long residency on Fallon's NBC late night show.

Whatever soul or conviction was behind Ordinary Love, the song U2 wrote in tribute to the last Nelson Mandela, got lost in the over produced slog the band delivered for the movie soundtrack. The version the Irish Rockers did during the Academy Awards Show Sunday (3/3) was very basic and far more compelling.
