How could anyone in this day and age possibly post a fake picture?

Not so fast.

Atu2.com has this update:

Quote:
Like many of you, we originally suspected this might be someone playing an April Fools' Day joke, but that doesn't appear to be the case. After doing some digging, and as we've reported on our Tours page, we believe the event was a late 50th birthday party for Apple design chief (and Friend Of Bono) Jony Ive. "Spike," the original source of information on Twitter and Instagram, is Richard "Spike" Holifield, who played bass on Sinead O'Connor's album, The Lion And The Cobra. He's now deleted all of his posts and photos from the event, but you can still see them on Storify. We'll leave our original story in tact below, but the links to individual tweets won't work, nor will the embedded Instagram photo show up.

"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Am I missing something? What is the confirmation? That the guy erased the tweets?

I'm not saying it can't be true, it's just rather odd.

Adam just happens to forget his bass.
The only one they could find was from a guy who's whole bio is he played on a 30 something year old album?
Not one other single guest Instagramed or tweeted about it?
And then Dallas' note; is he always in the habit of texting setlists?

I'm basing it on the fact that @U2 feels it's legit and I trust them as a source. Perhaps it turns out to be wrong...then so be it but as of now it appears to be legit.

If it were an April Fools joke, someone would have come forward by now as is customary with April Fools edict!

I gotcha.

I'm still skeptical, it's a rather odd story, but hey it's U2

Dave Swift Jools Holland's bassist
https://www.instagram.com/p/BSdsGA9F...=daveswiftbass

"One of the many things I love about being Jools Holland's full time bassist is, I never know who I'm going to be asked to play with next! At a private gig this past weekend, I was asked to play bass for Bob Geldof, Marc Almond, Lily Allen & Bono! Here's a pic I took behind the scenes during a last minute rehearsal. Here you can see Jools, Bono and The Edge (far left) If you look carefully, you'll also spot our very own Ruby Turner. U2 were on after us, so I managed to have a chat with bassist Adam Clayton. He was due to borrow one of my vintage Ibanez Musician basses (he used these himself back in the 80's) but I believe he ended up using a Fender supplied by the venue. What an incredible night, and yes, I really do love my job! "
