Bono and Edge at R.E.M. gig

Hey, thought some people might be interested to hear that Bono and Edge were at the first of R.E.M.'s 5-Night Dublin stint tonight. They were sitting in one of the fancy boxes with Gavin Friday, Guggi, and their wives. (Pretty sure it was Morleigh anyway. It was hard to see). Michael Stipe thanked Bono and Edge at the beginning. Pity there was no Automatic Baby type event but it was still a great gig!

It was a cool gig. The venue is really small. They're calling them 'Working Rehearsals' so they did ten brand new songs. The older songs were all from the early 80's except for two gems from New Adventures in Hi-Fi (U2's Pop I reckon, i.e. incredible yet some somewhat unappreciated album). Peter Buck actually seemed to be enjoying performing which is very out of character for him! Stipe was singing most of the lyrics from a laptop or sheets but was still a great frontman as always. Going to see them again tomorrow night. Hoping for a few more old songs.

I agree with everyone else Wish I had been there, wish U2 and R.E.M would do something together ... I heard that R.E.M did New Test Leper (my current favourite song), is that right?

I actually saw Bono sing One with Stipe and Mills at an LA event honoring Bono a few years ago....it was really special, at least it was for me, being such a huge fan of both bands.

I remember REM honoring Bono singing "I Got You Babe", but I don't remember Bono singing One with them, anyone got video of this...

I've never heard of Bono singing with Michael Stipe before ... it would be pretty neat if they had!

I wish there was video of the night...Lauryn Hill performed....No Doubt....a few others. It was not televised, but, maybe people shot video on their own. Was at the newly opened Kodak Theater, on Valentine's Day. I sure hope they performed One together, and that it's not somehow a false memory in my brain.

Ok then this was not the one I was thinking about...

What was this? Are you sure it wasn't a false memory, cause I can't find anything on Google...

No, it happened. It was a private affair, not open to the public, and it was honoring Bono on Valentine's Day. The Kodak theater had just opened up not long before. There were celebrities there and the whole 9 yards. A friend of mine works for Universal Studios, and she was invited, and she took me along.

No, just him. Is Bono's birthday anywhere near Valentine's Day? Because some part of my brain thinks it was a b-day thing.
