First night of Elevation, I think it was Miami.

He takes a spill and goes for a good audience run int he werchter festival proshot video from the 80's.

Bono falling on the walkway was from Miami 2001, opening night of the tour.

London 1993 - the selected lady got a little overeager on Bono. 2-3 audience videos exist.

Vancouver 1992 - Pride mic throwing incident

Bono Elevation SNL(2001) & IWF lapdance(2004)

Didn't Bono during a show go after a fan on the Elevation Tour? I'm thinking it was in Minneapolis?

Could you or someone please elaborate on this?

Also, what about the time in the early days when he jumped off a balcony(in U2 by U2) come to think about it, it could have been as late as UF tour in a small arena somewhere.

Climbing those stage riggings like he did during Electric Co performances is stark goddamn crazy! Never understood that. I work security at concerts and all permanent stages have something similar to what he climbs to get to the top and wave the white flag. On a lonely, boring overnight shift, my curiosity got the best of me and I started to climb up one of those little ladders(which the lighting/rigging crew only does w/safety equiptment) and got scared off my ass 1/4 of the way up and climbed down.

For someone who claims to be afraid of heights, I'll never get how Bono did that. Must have been just caught up in the intensity of the moment, and MOST importantly, not looked down or thought about what he was doing too much. Those things are narrow with very little margin for error, as I found out 1st hand.

Yeah, he said about that "adrenaline is a powerful drug" or something like that. Brilliant stunt though, do you think he told anyone - band, security, etc - that he was going to do it?

That Fly clip is a bit raunchy isn't it?? Hehe, thought he was actually shagging that fan during the solo



See Breathe.

Thanks so much for posting the You tube links. Bono is a gifted front man, for an awesome band and certainly my favorite!

Just a bit. The young lady was over excited and I think Bono handled it well.
He did seem to be enjoying himself.
