I heard some rumors about the band coming back in NYC to finish the album so maybe.....

I had a great week not long ago. I was booed on stage in Arusha, Tanzania, at the TED conference which I had campaigned long and hard to have in Arusha, Tanzania. I was booed by all the young entrepreneurs in the audience who thought I was peddling this idea of a supplicant Africa, which I happen to think could not be further from the truth. In the very same week I was chased down the street in Germany by a bunch of anarchists at the G8 summit, wielding placards and shouting "Make Bono history!" – which even as I was running for my life I thought was a pretty good line.
omfg!

Yeah, I couldn't believe that, either. There are a lot of conspiracy theories about him being some kind of puppet master who pulls all the strings in the United States government. But who knows. Maybe Bono's in on it! This is only going to add fuel to the fire for all the conspiracy theorists who already think Bono is in the Illuminati or whatever.

I'm sure Bono doesn't care much about conspiracy theories. He has known Soros for some time now. Soros has been a big investor in several charities and campaigns that Bono is involved in, including the ONE campaign. I don't always agree with the people Bono surrounds himself with but I'm not the one who's doing that work and I also don't have enough insight to make a judgement. I like Bono because he's following his goals without caring about what other people think. He has also spoken about that again in the recent Guardian interview which was very interesting.

Yes, Bono is back in NYC this week, he is due to appear at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park this coming Saturday to present the Liberian President with an award. In fact it's been rumoured that the whole band might return to NYC this week to continue work on the new album. So, no doubt we'll get more sightings, and hopefully, the odd candid photo this week!
