was the Patti Smith incident ever explained?

was the incident with Patti Smith ever explained where she came onstage to play a song in NYC with the boys, but last thing they saw was Bono taking her off the stage and not returning...not even to finish the show?

^ Didn't happen like that, I was 1st row behind the stage and from what I gathered, Bono wanted the song Instant Karma to go on like 40 does at the end of a show. He wanted everyone to sing "and we all shine on, like the stars, and the moon and the sun." as they left the stage.................but I think alot of fans didn't get it.

He was just giving Patty a cue when to leave, she didn't have to be dragged off the stage they left the stage and then when the crowd died....Bono and Patty came back to try to get it going again. But that didn;t happen and in the video you can see Bono shrugging his shoulders as to say oh well we tried.

Personally, I still thought it was good and not as bad as others say. IMO I would have liked to hear the original ending which was Bad (I saw it on the setlist below me). But now every time I here Instant Karma I just have to smile.

an odd way to end such a long run at the garden, that's for sure

when it comes to ending long runs, springsteen certainly has u2 trumped.

I'm a straight man, and I'd rather have sex with Mr Macphisto then Patti Smith.

what i don't understand out of all of this is when they came back on stage why bono says,

"have good teeth!"

"clean your breath!"

that one has me baffled even to this day

i dunno but he clearly sang it when he and patti were going back and forth after they came back on stage:

''and we all shine on

its within you

... inaudible

be strong

be aware

be true

be awake

be not afraid

have good breath

clean your teeth

be true

sing one more time new york city "


most irregular yet highly entertaining

Well I did hear that when she was singing, she was spitting on people. She truly is grusome...(but he is very fond of her) I don't get it.

She just got named to the Rock Hall today.

i consider her a Leonard Cohen equivalent for female singers. Definitely an acquired taste, definitely not to everyone's liking, but a unique talent.
