I'm fairly certain that has never happened with a U2 concert. I think there have been a few that have been outright cancelled (screen being damanged on Popmart, Bono's voice crapping out on Lovetown).

Sorry to say, your friend's full of beans.

Kids, the moral of today's story is: don't lie about something that is very well documented, you will look the fool.

Well, my understanding is Bono made countless speeches criticising the IRA during the 1980s, particularly in the US (as he wanted to, in his own words, 'dry up' IRA funding from misguided Irish Americans.) But my friend's story is kind of the opposite, i.e, that Bono allegedly made a comment while on stage that could be interpreted as pro-IRA.

But now I am intrigued, because the incident I think you are referring to was a shooting at an IRA funeral, where several mourners were shot by a loyalist terrorist. Also the timeline is consistent as my friend was at a concert in NY in the late 80s. Most likely Bono said something like all killings should be condemned, and my friend decided to hear that Bono was saying 'up the IRA'.

In fact, I still have the t-shirt with the date (April 23rd, 1992) and city listed
Seriously? That's a great gig, with the "God Part 2" snippet in WoWY

Finance Guy,

You can look it up, it was one of the two NY shows during Joshua Tree in 87. I have a bootleg somewhere I can try and listen to it again. If my memory holds (and it may not) he said "F the IRA" which is why the girl I was with gasped. She was one of those pro IRA Americans.

I think Bono had a cold the final week of the first leg of the 1992 tour. Some encores got a bit abbreviated.

In November they played 2 Vancouver shows at the stadium, including Clinton's election day. There was a media party between the 2 shows were 4 members of u2 were the bartenders/waiters!!! One of the shows had the Pride mic throwing incident - something about Edge echo unit and larry's click track not working together.
