Looks short to me, unfortunately. I'd like to see a better pic too. Think how pretty a big pic of that face with no shades would be. I don't understand why we can't find more pics.

Edge said there will be a SLANE DVD out by Christmas!!!!

How awesome would that be??????? GAH! I soooooo hope it wasn't joke or something. Edgie wouldn't be that cruel, would he?


Yes, yes. I NEED a new DVD! Please be true.

Bono takes time out to sign autographs for fans waiting outside Belfast's Great Victoria Street BBC studio

Beautiful Day as U2 steal the show

THE cream of Irish rock and pop may have glittered at last night's Hot Press awards but the night belonged to music giants U2.

Bono and the boys confirmed their reign at the top of the world's rock scene as they jetted into Belfast to take home three gongs from the prestigious event.

The Dubliners picked up Best Irish Band, Best Live Act for last summer's Slane gig and the Best Male Singer award for Bono.

Speaking of the Belfast bash, Bono said he had been away from the city for too long.

"We are honoured to win these awards here," he said.

"Driving past the Odyssey Arena today I was thinking, 'hey, we should be playing there'.

"Belfast is really happening at the minute. I'm looking around and the people are looking good, the place is looking good."

Downpatrick lads Ash kept the flag flying for Northern Ireland as they left with two awards - Best Album for Free All Angels and Best Single for Shining Light.

Divine Comedy frontman Neill Hannon also pulled further success for the province when he won Best Songwriter.

But the upset of the night was when teenage favourites Westlife picked up just one award.

The boy band, who recently played the Odyssey Arena as part of the record-breaking sell-out run in the city, won an award for their Outstanding Achievement in the Popular Music category.

They lost out to Dundalk favourites The Corrs who were crowned Best Pop Act.

Speaking of the upset, Andrea Corr commented: "We have the utmost respect for Westlife.

"They did very well at the Meteor Awards in Dublin and we have done very well here."

Did anyone read Lazyboy's review of the telecast? He said Bono was drunk!

Man, he was sooo sooo pissed! Fair play to him, he was really funny too! Great show, they talked to Bono backstage too, and get this, he saw the video of Slane, so it EXISTS!!!!!!!! Hehe, seriously, I watched him talk about it, he was saying that it was an emotional day at Slane1, that they were keening, or something, which means bawling or lettin out sadness in public, and then he went on to Slane2, which he described as pure joy, a real ROCK SHOW!! He commented on how they filmed it, and the fact that he felt he would never watch it or get the chance to watch it, but the other day he got the video and he said it is incredible, yep, looks damn likely it'll be released!!!! But during Edge's acceptance speech he never mentioned it as was said here, maybe they cut it.

And on the new album, Edge was commenting on it, about the whole rock factor and Bono joined in sayin it was an exciting time, that the next album could be the best one, cos it was a real rock time now, with bands from Sweden(the Hives?) and New York(Strokes?) and places around the world, and that once again it was about the music, the message, and not that other bollocks.

Bono also screwed up presentin the Best International Live act, readin the winner before he had even read the nominees, he was so drunk! Radiohead got it, and he was very complementing.

He also went on about how great it was to get a night out seeing as he was stuck at home under nappies as the missus was off savin the world, and he screwed up when readin the auto queue as well, a barrel of laughs! Larry was funny too, twas a gas night and they looked like they had a ball, esepcially Bono, and here's to Slane2 DVD and a kick ass album!!!!

Oh yeah, for those of you in Britian, it's on BBC choice I think tomorrow, and also on Tv3 here in Ireland again tomorrow. (twas on BBC Northern Ireland tonight)

And you Americans, Ash who won the best album award are releasin said album, Free All Angels, in a few weeks over there, so watch out for it!!!!

The Frames and David Kitt also performed, more mighty Irish artists, it was definitely a damn fine showcase of Irish music!
Sounds cool! Remember it's on BBC tommorrow so it would be so cool if one of you girls could get us some stills of this!
