private jet for U2

This was on youtwo.net -

From The Irish Mirror:

U2 PLAN TO TOUR BY JET
By Paul Martin

U2 star BONO wants to buy a jet to take the band on their next tour. My perfectly
placed spies say Bono, 42, has his assistants looking for the best deal on the
market.

One said: "He thinks it would be a great idea if they had a private jet to cut down
on travel costs and make life more comfortable.

"U2 go all over the world with their music so it seems like a good idea. They might
even call it U2 airways."


Seems very odd to me that they don't already have a private jet. They are multi-multi-millionaires. There are people who make a small fraction of what they make and have private jets. In fact I thought the 747 that they had during POPMART was theirs, since it had the POP logos on the side and everything. Anybody know if this story is true or not.

Actually it is quite common for acts to "rent" jumbo jets and have them custom painted.

I have only heard of Aerosmith actually buying a plane (a used Air Force Once Jet).

if this good idea is true it suggests that they are planning to tour for awhile

just as long as bono doesn't 'drive'

VelvetDress mentioned to me that this is a good sign that they will be touring again soon, and probably extensively, if they find the need to now (after so long) to finally invest in a plane.

When it says private jet, I don't think they refer to a 747, 757, or anything like that, I think they are talking about a private ejecutive jet, like a lear jet or something, something very high class for 10 or 12 ppl, maybe Bono is tired of lobbing traveling in airlines.

And yes the planes for zoo tv popmart and elevation, were all rented.

*Maybe I'm crazy, but haven't they leased 757's on the last three tours???????*
