thanks for both pictures!

still, i remember seeing a black and white picture of Bono on stage in his muscular shirt giving the finger. it looked like it was from a newspaper cutting (maybe The Sun or something), and i also remember that i saw it an an old fanzine (maybe Collectormania?).

Now i can't seem to find the right magazine.

so far this is the closest i've come in my search:



it's a screen shot taken from this You Tube clip:



as you can see, Bono's arm is outstretched as he's flipping the bird, not below his leg as shown on the picture above from the Popmart tour.

I don't have it bigger, at least not that I have found going through my files so far. I definitely would have posted the biggest size for you if I had it!

And you could be right on the Vegas pics, I wasn't sure myself what they are from.

I'll definitely keep my eye out for a better size of that one, but it may be all I have unfortunately.

Now I got what you need!!!

I got it from this blog: Luminous Times: 1997 August - Popmart, Leeds Magic and Mud

I was looking for it on google and I found this blog but it doesn´t have the photo as you can see. I suggest you read what she said about Leeds show, it´s very cool.

I asked her to send me the photo by email and she sent!!

Here you go:
