Oh, no- not that guy again?? If it were true, I think we would ahve heard more about it, and even pix from a camera phone, RIGHT??

As far as Oct. 26, I am counting on a certain Long Islander who has already met the real Mr. Hewson to lead this crazy pleban thing....
I have been wanting to "talk" (email) her, but am a bit nervous she will think i might be some kind of NUT!!
Give me a sign if you know who it is I am addressing.....

Yep, he could have easily flown over on Sunday....
hmmm....

But I will believe it when I see pictures.

If anybody should be in NewYork right now I would think it would be Ali.
It's fashion week right JC?

Besides: Purple shades and a (Red) shirt? If it was: Red shades and trying to hold his jacket closed, I'd say okay ...
Purple shades red shirt, sounds like it could be, but no I don't think so. My radar wasn't going off today unless its broken.

No Edun, nothing on the website about it either. The last line they have is spring/summer 2007.

it IS fashion week but my gut is that the Across the Universe Premiere will be tonite, tomorrow or Wednesday.... I don't know hot to sleuth that...my guess would be the Ziegfeld or given Ms. Tamor's b'way background, perhaps something closer to midtown

To add more mystery to this puzzle, Bono was rumored to be in my city today:

http://www.austin360.com/blogs/conte...cconaughe.html


ACL Fest is coming up this weekend and it does headline a LOT of groups associated with U2 (Arcade Fire, The Killers, even Bob Dylan !) but I don't think that this is true.


Although the thought that he was in NYC does make me wonder.






I do have the feeling that he is back in North America due to the Toronto Film Festival, Across the Universe premiere, etc.



Let's hope.

It 's one thing, last unicorn, for someone in Gawker to say that they saw someone famous on the streets of NYC because there is no liability or accountability there.


It DOES become a bit more serious when a reputable news source (the Austin-American Statesman, a reputable newspaper) puts it on their website or in their newspaper because there IS a degree of accountability there to the public.



I put in a phone call to someone who might know the truth of all these sightings so I'm not worried about it.



I just thought that I would add something of substance to this discussion, which is as much my right as anyone else's.


I'm sure that you would be a bit hopeful if it was rumored that B was in your town. (look at all the other responses here about B in NYC!)



I really don't care because I'll be seeing the man in two weeks.




Have a beautiful day. Please don't let it get away!

Sorry, I was just trying to be a bit sarcastic about all these obscure Bono sightings which we hear and read about so often, many of them are not real. It was nothing against you or anyone else, Jamila, I was only trying to make fun of the rumours.

IF ONLY he came to my city! You're right, I would be alarmed, too, if there were any rumours suggesting so, but with our media, it's very unlikely. At least I cannot remember that he has ever been rumoured to be here.

I wish you luck with seeing/meeting Bono!

I just find it very hard to believe that he is in NYC right now, yet he didn't show up at the Toronto International Film festival last night for Across the Universe, not did he support premier of Daniel Lanois movie. Toronto is an hour flight from NYC.... and there were so many people/movies/individuals here in Toronto that he is linked with, yet he made no show.

Was no one there from the band?

You know, maybe Bono isn't very well at the moment because of all the stuff that has been going on recently, he's only human. Could also be that they want to work in the studio or that he's having political obligations, who knows? He cannot be everywhere.

Hey I just heard that on Sunday night there was a big tribute to Tony Bennett at Radio City Music Hall and even President Bill Clinton showed up and surprised everybody in the crowd....
so maybe Bono was hanging out back stage with his buddies!!
Just speculating.. I have no idea if he was there or not, but if he was in the Big Apple he probably would have been there.....

Last unicorn, I'm sorry to tell it to you but Kommissar Rex has lost tracks of them at the airport in Parma, from where they flew away at about 9pm last saturday!

well, one other thing is.... Bono doesn't HAVE purple sunglasses closest thing is the blue Elevation Bvlgari's or the PINK Armani's, which Bono isn't wearing anymore.... and we all know a dude who still wears those, including Bono's long hair.....
