(03-17-2004) Bono Speaks To Students, Returns To Rock - ChartAttack*

By: ChartAttack.com Staff

Want to meet an internationally famous rock star? Hold a big event and place a want ad seeking a prominent speaker Bono will likely show up. Last time Bono was in Toronto, for example, it wasnt to play a concert, it was to speak at the National Liberal Convention. Likewise, Mr. Vox will be in Philadelphia later this spring, but once again, without any musical reason at all.

The University Of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia has invited Bono to deliver their commencement address on May 17. At the ceremony, Bono will also have the honour of becoming Dr. Bono, as the University plans to award him with a honourary Doctor Of Law degree at the ceremony.

Is Bono just making the trip for the fake degree or the glory that comes with speaking at a prestigious university? Maybe, but its also a good opportunity for the rocker/do-gooder to talk about his favourite worthy cause the fight against the global AIDS epidemic. Bono is expected to speak at length about his work with Debt AIDS Traffic Africa in particular.

After the speech, Bono will get back to doing what hes famous for in the first place: being a rock star. According to Billboard.com, U2 recently completed what is believed to be the last studio session for their upcoming album. The untitled record is expected to be released later this year.

That's got to be a good sign there!

I wish I could take a little road trip to hear his speech.

The Law thing is odd... can they just give it to him if he did not attend or do the work for it?
