Hi Moonlit I was wondering the same thing? I know that U2 has a concert the day of Live 8 but I hope that Bono can get some rest before that...a few days off would do him a world of good!!!

Wednesday, June 29 - Cardiff, Wales

then after Live 8 they play in Vienna.

Hopefully he'll be able to get some rest before Saturday.

Okay. Two days...eh, well, that should rest him up a little bit at least, which is better than nothing.

I can't imagine that being enough - but he won't have a couple of weeks off until between Leg 2 & Leg 3 (a break from August 15- September 11).

It's too rough and unkept and really is making him look older than he is (the dark shades over his eyes, slicked back thinning hair, extremely dark colored clothing...bleh).

Something a little more like this, but w/ a LIGHT colored dress shirt or suit ensemble would be a bit more marketable, IMO:



That said, I have yet to see the interview in question...
this is a very good look and would sell well.
He looks scholarly in a way, like a professor.

And for you ladies that just want to pant every time Bono sashas into the room or makes a TV appearance, youre impeding the progress here.

I don't know whats going on w Bono I haven't walked a mile in his thong, ok thats all for now, lets just try and stay on topic.

thank u

I'm gonna have to check my tape to see again whether I think Bono looked as 'bad' as some of you thought...I mean, I like the posted photo look, but I certainly don't recall him looking bad or dark/disheveled etc in the interview. He did seem exhausted though...was it live ( I presume so)? What the hell time was it in Dublin when it's 10:30 EasternTime in the US?!
I can't even begin to imagine what lack of sleep does to deepen back pain...when I'm dealing with that I find that lack of sleep makes it soo much worse.
I like his current look fine, but I must say I'd surely enjoy a dress-Bono up session on WhatNottoWear!

and though I think I myself have heard just about everything he said before, for those to whom the message was new I'd guess he was pretty effective. I don't think he looked so alien to a conservative that they'd not listen to his words very closely, and he was careful not to badmouth bush. I think his comment about how he believes bush really wants to do this and he just needs the permission of the fiscal conservative forces and those who feel that we've already spent so much on the war was very good. I think that his bringing up how even colin powell (yes, the dove of the last cabinetset despite his ex-general status) said we can win hearts and defeat 'enemies' by alleviating poverty was a good point. He did seem tired and less emphatic or smily making these points than he usually does, but I thought it must be because it was 4:30 am for him, or somesuch.
cheers!

Good, Im not the only one that taped it
He didnt really look 'bad'
Just very tired and hunched over in pain...or something of that nature
maybe he was trying to appear stodgy to reach a different demographic

My point for posting the thread was to help Bono get his message acrosss with the maxium amount of effect.

I love the little fellow and have loved him for the last quarter century.

These suggestions are made out of support and love for what Bono is doing.

Granted if I would of listened to the Meet the Press audio only, I would of appreciated Bono'e vast knowledge of the topics and keen intellect.

My point is his appearance needs a bit of polish for maximum effectiveness for those he is trying to sway.


We as fans will take him anyway he comes to us even in those silly Macphisto horns, but there is a time and place for everything.

Thats all.
