PLEBA Misc News and Articles #8
 
Time for a new thread so I'm bringing the last post over from the previous. It's not exactly "news", but since it may spawn some new beach clips we'll run with it. :wink:

Looks like Germany will be able to order the tour book first. Worldwide won't be available until September.

U2 360 Tour Book Available

Sweet! I want that for Christmas.

I wrote about this book yesterday in the U2 book section. I didn't know it existed. Looks like it will be available in Germany in September and worldwide in November. However, I think I'll go for the original release, since I don't want a German translation.

Larry married or will marry??? :ohmy:

Rachel D. 08-16-2012 10:14 PM

I thought he already had a common law marriage (after being together for 30 years or so!), but maybe they want to have an actual ceremony now. Yay for U2 weddings!

Angel-Of-Harlem 08-16-2012 10:50 PM

But if they've been together for about 30 years, why would they decide to marry now?
Anyway, if this happens to be true, good for them!! :cute:

U2360 08-17-2012 01:08 AM

I would guess they didn't get married before because divorce was only made legal in Ireland in '97 (though I'm not sure if that applied to every religion), so I would say they didn't want to get into a situation where they were separated but couldn't be divorced (like our poor Edge). I'd think that anyway, as for the last fifteen years... it's their private lives so who knows, and I would never ask.
But if this news is true, then great for them! I'm assuming this is Larry and the girl he's been with since they were teenagers. God bless them. I hope they have a beautiful day and that it isn't ruined by nosy media people or fans.

hcbiggs2002 08-17-2012 03:44 AM

Maybe Larry and Ann are finally tying the knot for the sake of their children. Also it might be, according to Irish law, that only the children of a legitamite state/church recognised marriage are allowed to inherite their parents fortune, without having to go through some messy court case! :shrug: Who knows, but whatever the reason(s), congrats to the happy couple!! :cheer::cocktail:

last unicorn 08-17-2012 07:37 AM

Maybe Larry (IF this rumor is even true) is getting married on the day of Bono's and Ali's 30th wedding anniversary. That would be quite a symbolic act! I wonder if the Hewsons will be out celebrating that special day, but knowing Bono I don't think he'll miss a good party :lol:

Rachel D. 08-18-2012 10:58 AM

So is this the only source we have saying that Larry is getting married? If we don't hear any more info about it besides that one tweet, I'm going to seriously doubt it. Although, since Larry is such a private person, we may never hear any more about it. Ever.

U217 08-18-2012 05:53 PM

Ohhhh! I wonder if Bono & Ali are doing a vow renewal to celebrate 30 years and gossip got mixed up? Thirty years calls for a big party. You gotta give people credit for marrying in countries where you can't divorce, that is a big leap. Just the thought makes me shaky!

yolland 08-18-2012 09:59 PM

sera sûrement là = 'will surely be there' and ce = 'this' (weekend), not 'the' weekend; also the date on the tweet is Aug. 9, FWIW.

U2360 08-18-2012 11:01 PM

It would actually make a lot more sense if this is Bono and Ali, not Larry and Ann. Wonder if this will turn out to be true either way or if someone thought it would be amusing to mention it for no real reason.

last unicorn 08-21-2012 09:56 AM

Happy 30the Wedding Anniversary, Bono and Ali. What a great, beautiful and inspiring couple :heart:

light 08-22-2012 10:29 AM

Looks like Bono appeared as a suprise guest on stage at a very secret Herbert Grönemeyer Concert.
Apparently it was recorded at the Metropolis Halle in Berlin Babelsberg for Grönemeyers new English language Album "I Walk" which release is expected for October.

According to twitter Bono and Grönemeyer did a duet of the song "Mensch".

Bono's German :lol::lmao:

Rachel D. 08-22-2012 12:44 PM

:lol: Bono looks like he's a little worried right before he sings, like "Why did I agree to sing in German?!" :uhoh: He seems to pull it off pretty well, though, as far as I can tell.

Babyface82 08-22-2012 01:12 PM

but it was yesterday...or in 2007??

The video was from 2007 but the photo was from yesterday, it looks like.

Wow, he gets around. Is that how he spent his anniversary?

Its okay for someone who never speaks german . He pulls it of halfish

last unicorn 08-22-2012 05:00 PM

Ali must be a truly tolerant woman if she lets her husband spend the night of their 30th wedding anniversary singing with Herbert Gronemeyer in Germany. And there I was thinking they had a great but private celebration.


The video is from 2007, I was at that show. Bono read all the words from the teleprompter. For someone who does not speak German I'd say he's doing ok. I read an interview with Gronemeyer earlier where he talks about the new album he's doing in English and there's a duet with Bono on it.

I like Gronemeyer I lot but I think he should stick to singing German. His English isn't exactly great.

corianderstem 08-22-2012 05:03 PM

Who's to say they didn't have a great, private celebration? :shrug: Who's to say she wasn't there and they celebrated after/before/the next day?

Liesje 08-22-2012 06:52 PM

*snort* I'm rarely with my husband for our anniversary, or birthdays, or most things and neither of us are famous. I travel a lot for Schutzhund and flyball, almost every weekend whether it's for specialized training or a competition. We can celebrate any time. Considering Bono's vocation and lifestyle I'm sure Ali can handle it.

last unicorn 08-23-2012 06:10 PM

It makes me wonder a bit because it's a big anniversary for them and Bono's a family person after all. Being on stage with Gronemeyer doesn't sound exactly like a private celebration with family and close friends. As far as I've read, Neil McCormick was also there since he's doing a feature on Herbert and I guess there was some partying involved.

Yeah, I'm also sure Ali can handle it, maybe she was there as well. I haven't seen her with B for quite a while since all the latest pictures suggested he's with different friends and other celebs in the South of France.

LU, i really can't understand why you're jumping to such conclusions and being so judgemental on matters that absolutely do not concern you

also, photos are literally just a snapshot in time - you have absolutely NO idea what the wider context was or who was/wasn't out of shot

Indeed. Let's remember those photos of Bono and Penelope Cruz holding hands, and how they were croppped to obscure the fact that in his other paw was the hand of Helena Christensen, and also that pretty much his entire family was herding along behind them. Quelle scandale!

Liesje 08-23-2012 10:25 PM

:shrug: Maybe we're just odd but anniversaries just aren't that big of a deal for my husband and I (or either of our families). I don't know anyone that celebrates a wedding anniversary with family and friends. We usually tell each other no gifts and then I come home from work and find my favorite candies on the counter and maybe a flower if it's one not poisonous to our pets and that's about the extent of it.

Maybe they celebrated before, or after, or maybe not at all. It doesn't matter to me other than I think it's cute seeing new pics of Bono and Ali together.

GraceRyan 08-24-2012 07:25 AM

Maybe they need to go back to work so we have something else to focus on.

I'm hoping that once kids are due back in school that they settle down and go to the studio. It's been a long time since they last worked on music, at least all together in the traditional sense. I wonder if the stuff they worked on gets scrapped...like most U2 albums.

Yes indeed. And it's not like Ali was not there at all either cus we saw her in one of the pics..(of france, not Germany) pitty it was only one but I guess, as usual, she likes to stay in the background...

Babyface82 08-27-2012 04:52 PM

2 days ago Bono was in Portofino (Italy):

Bottigliate all'Hotel Splendido di Portofino - GENOVA OGGI NOTIZIE

Quote:

Genoa - A furious fight to sit next to Bono, U2's lead singer. It happens to Portofino, at the exclusive Hotel Splendido. According rebuilt, two hotel guests were discussed heatedly for a seat, rapidly moving from words to deeds: one of them would receive a beer bottle to the head to the point of having to take care of the men of the Green Cross of Santa Margherita Ligure .
The wounded man, a Scottish manager of 44 years, has not reported major trauma

corianderstem 08-27-2012 05:12 PM

So ... Bono didn't get a say in who got to sit next to him? Or was he placing bets on the winner?

Catman 08-27-2012 06:13 PM

Not much in the way of news, but there's a U2/ Bono mention, so I figured I'd just post it anyways...

Angel-Of-Harlem 08-28-2012 05:22 PM

That's sick. He even posted about Mrs Evans' death. Playing around with someone else's grief isn't funny at all. As if making people believe you're the real Edge wasn't bad enough.
So, Edge doesn't interact with fans through Twitter, but he does make personal posts on Facebook. Suuuuuuure... :angry:
Wtf. Just wtf :gah:
