That would have been interesting. Not sure if in a good or a bad way.
Anybody have a hard time believing Bono would pass up an opportunity to be on stage, especially with someone he admired someone so much?

Maybe he was tired.

But sure, why not?

Maybe he's taking his "our fans our not funky enough" to mean "I'M not funky enough."

Like Boner would be able to remember the lyrics of anything he would have been asked to sing along on.

Ha! Yeah, maybe Bono was all "I know Kiss, I can sing that one," and Prince was all "No way, tall guy. I'm not playing that tonight."

I didn't see a teleprompter on American Idol last night.. Wondering how he sang the whole song without fucking it up.. Hmm maybe he actually memorized the lyrics..? NAW.. Probably had some high tech miniature telepromter in his long ass sleeves of his leather jacket..

Didn't Shuttlecock cover The Cross from Sign O' the Times once back on the Joshua Cock Tour, or am I crazy?

I assume Bono has a telepromter similar to Bruce's that is flush with the floor, at least on AI, which is why you wouldn't have seen it. But, hell if I know.

I thought it was a Prince show, and Bono and Edge or Bono and .... just Bono was there?

I found the track on Limewire or whatever back in the day, and maybe it was just mislabeled.

It was in Dublin, I believe it was an actual Prince concert. Some places I've seen it labeled as U2 covering Prince, some just say it's Bono joining Prince.

There's a recording of it out there somewhere. The vocal is very much Bono circa 95, but the rest is hard to tell.

I remember the quality being not great, and that I couldn't even hear if Bono was actually singing or not.

I also heard the show ended at 4:30 AM, it was the 3rd in a series of intimate shows. The tix cost $500 a piece.

Maybe Bono still gets flashbacks from when he sang with Dylan and didn't know any of the words.

I'm going to see him in 6 weeks or so, at the North Sea Jazz festival. He's playing 3 night concerts there (on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night). The Saturday concert starts at 1 AM, so I wonder until what time he will play (according to the schedule it's 2:30, but you never know with Prince). The line-up of the festival also has quite a few artists with a Prince connection (Mavis Staples, Chaka Khan, Candy Dulfer) so who knows what will happen. I will be there though, on the Saturday!
